TERRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICES. Foothill Pediatrics, for some reason, chose to enter into a dispute with our family over payment of our first bill from them, two days after we had received it. My wife tried to deal with them but wound up writing a letter to the Union Democrat complaining about their treatment of us.

Now they have sent a bill backdating a "bad debt charge" to two months BEFORE we received our first bill from Foothill Pediatrics. They did not ask for a copay at the time of service (we had a PPO), and at the time of this new "bad debt" charge, we had received no bill from them whatsoever.

They also told us that we could not take our children to them again, except in the case of a medical emergency. We were perfectly friendly when we used their clinic, but we have never been treated like this by any doctor - and it seems particularly bad practice for a pediatrician.

I would suggest avoiding Foothill Pediatrics at all costs. I know the choices are somewhat limited in this area for pediatricians, but whoever deals with their billing has a terrible mentality.

They also charged a surgeon friend of ours for being late to an appointment with her child - because she was performing surgery herself at the time. They should not be allowed to practice pediatrics. We have complained to the Better Business Bureau and the Medical Board of California about them.

We have paid our bill in full - the backdated "bad debt" charge seems malicious, probably because we had a letter about them published in the Union Democrat.

This is a great office. The nurses here are very helpful and know their stuff. The doctors here are all great with children. I've seen all of them on one occasion or another. Great place to take your kids with confidence.

I take my two boys to Dr. Spangler at Foothill Peds. He is knowledgeable and friendly. The staff is always willing to get you in even same day if you need it. My kids do not fear the doctor because of this office.
