HE TOLD ME HE WAS NOT GETTING PAID FAST ENOUGH FROM INSURANCE COMPANIES AND IF I LOANED HIM $5,000 HE WOULD PAY ME BACK %6,000. THE FOLLOWING WEEK. i HAVE GONE THROUGH ROUGH TIMES. i HAVE HAD MY IDENTITY STOLEN. SOLD MY BUSINESS TO A FELON AFTER PAYING A LAWER OVER $7,000 TO "protect ME AND MY WIFE". NOW THE BUSINESS IS GONE ALL BUT $5,000 WENT TI IRS AND DEPT OF REVENUE TO PAY TAXES THE NEW "OWNER" NEVER PAID. SPUZA TOOK MY LAST PENNY I HAD (KNOWENLY) SO HE COULD PAY HIS STAFF ECT. i THOUGHT HE WAS JUST HAVING] A BAD TIME LIKE ME. HIS CHECK HE PAID ME BACK WITH (AND NOT $6,000 WHICH I MYSELF THOUGHT WAS HIGH) BOUNCED TWICE. i TOOK IT TO DA'S OFFICE DIVIRSITY PROGRAM SO HE COULD PAY IT BACK WITH OUT GETTING IN TROUBLE JUST TO HAVE HIS LIVE IN GIRLFRIEND SHOW UP WIFE $7,000 OF FRUADULANT BILLS THEY SAID I OWED THEM!!!

Innocent until proved guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt.This case saddens me for many reasons,1)I was a patient of his and found him very confident.2}I hate to tell allyou fans out there of his and believe me I still would like to to get to the bottom of my issue.My insurance company which is widely known throughout USA sent my claims etc and there is a fradulant claim submitted which I was never aware of.Hate to burst the bubble.I would like to konw why all the angry people/pissed off moms etc...did not bring up there "issues" until now,on the otherhand sitting in his waiting room listening to patients talk about pills/prices etc where is the privacy,,and yea I addressed those folks,there pill counting turn is coming.I had no problem seeing him or his mom but most did because she does not give "pills" as heard by several patients.I would like to finish up by saying if he is found guilty he needs help/rehab.He has a good heart and has helped so many lives one way or another.

Everyone on here is so damn quick to judge this man. he is an excellent dr and a great person. however, there are people out there that will cheat the system and make all pain survivors look bad. Dr Spuza would give his last penny or shirt off his back to help his patients!!! Im sure none of you went in the office short on cash or looking for a "favor". he NEVER scammed insurance (read the case law you idiots)and the reason his wait is so long is becasue 70% of his clients are detox patients and he needs to be thorough with them as well as his 50 pain patients which he sees every day. The scrips he was caught with were for legitimate patients which were at the office. He was targeted becasue of things you dont know. so before you turn your back on someone which helped you, repeatedly, look on ways on how to help. However im sure most of you "pain patients" already moved on to new docs. Thats how you separate the junkies and liars from true pain survivors. Get your facts straight, and before you judge anyone, take a good look in the mirror, it could have been any one of you, and im sure one day it will be. PS, feds are already looking into known Dr shoppers which also saw Dr.S and are building cases against them as we speak, so the next time you step foot in a Dr.s office to "get your roxys" be aware that you might not leave. They are on to you, minimum of 20yrs for Dr shopping and traffiking- trust me you will be locked up before the holidays!-BAB-
This guy will take the shirt off your back and throw you out in the snow. He h a problem and he is one of the most distonest doctors i have met.You know when he went to jail back in 90 for taking kickbacks (That is why he does not take medicare. They wont let hi,. He was also charged with "a enganced charge of violation of trust" That says it all - LB

Are you serious? he only takes insurance for a handful of people. You dont think your GYN or GP rapes the system? Drs get paid $22 per $100 they bill for. My ins payments clearly show Dr.S billing properly. Get your facts straight, we are talking about an honest man here.
Thats why I was hit with a $200- bill??? Even after he started double billing insurance. I went in fro RX's and my explanation of benifits had charges up t0 $500. I think he check all the boxes on the super bill. I do not know what they were paying for. BTW - he is being investigated for insurance fruad.- LB

Michael Spuza is a loser and a liar. I feel bad for the next unsuspecting person who loans him money or believes anything that comes out of his mouth. I speak from first hand experience that he does not pay his debts, writes bad checks and is a second rate scam artist. I think both him and his girlfriend are habitual liars. My only comfort is what goes around comes around...

Please answer this...why did thye inform me they know longer take my insurance when the insurance company has them as a carrier...also why is it I have not been seen since 11/2008 and they are billing my insurance to this day after I paid cash{have reciepts}for each visit they are billing for.I truly think he has a good heart but that does not mean he has issues.

I was a patient of his and I just found out he isn't practicing anymore. I am a legitimate patient with herniated disks and he has been my pain doctor. Where are people like me going now? Any reference would be greatly appreciated.

Who's judging? Those who don't know him or those like myself who went there? Is he a nice guy? Yes, but tell you this, I wasn't even his patient and got scripts, I told him what and how many of pill i wanted so what did he help me with? Becoming addicted to pain pills and now I'm SOL, won't go to pain management elsewhere as i would be afraid they'd know i was lying, he didn't ask enough to know what was wrong with me. Yes he was and to a point is still a friend. Once i went thru the waiting room and tell you what, all i heard was people on cell phones stating they'd meet up later as they were there getting their scripts filled. Only once did i go that way due to circumstances and any other time went thru the back. Feds can investigate as they please as i didn't dr. shop and scripts were to me provided they can find my file as i don't believe one existed. This is how this friend called Dr. Spuza helped me by giving whatever and whenever as I didn't even have to go personnally to him yet my ins. shows different, of course i was there. Never was the ins. overcharged or charged for anything but office visit in fact i never paid co pay as he was my friend. My so called friend helped me became a pill addict Now i am considering suing him as he was irresponsible and did me such favors as providing me with addiction. No dr. would write the amount he did or at least to me. I loaned $ to him yet don't expect to get repaid at this point so maybe it was a payoff for pills. just thought he cared and was nice to me but now? I am another addict with pills. many out there will do all sorts of things to illegally get what i got legally.I never sold or gave them away but didn't use quantity each month he gave me which was from what i have heard was the max amt so i was ok after he went to jail until i ran out. so i am done.i am not critizing those who need medicine or those who went to him. I saw behind the scenes and yes he is knowledgable yet stupid for what he did. I think a set up from the pharmacy is not far from the truth I know he wasn't receiving $ from bills submitted to all ins. co, what was he to do? he was having major issues from some ins. co getting paid.wish he was smarter in all areas. BAB: either U worked there or you are in the same position as me or you are Dr. Spuza. I know what went on, i witnessed many things so your defense is not so accurate.]Everyone on here is so damn quick to judge this man. he is an excellent dr and a great person. however, there are people out there that will cheat the system and make all pain survivors look bad.

I must reply that the public perception is clouded. Being straightforward and to the point in this world appears as a threat to most people and these shortsighted perceptions are from their own Guilt!Drive on Micheal,you were always ahead of your time!!!
