This man is not there to help you, he is there to write a script and get paid. He does not have any compassion and I have yet to ever see him smile. He is unbelievably rude and condescending. I had a relapse of my panic attacks and he said he wasn't going to see me until I got help from a therapist too. (AFTER 8 YEARS NOT SEEING ONE) He didn't mess with dosages, he didn't show any empathy for what I was feeling he simply said not to come back until I had a note from a therapist. Awful experience

Dr Sprinkle was extremely rude and condescending. Seemed interested only in writing another prescription and then dismissing us. He never spent any time engaging our child before writing the next prescription. When questioned in the continual dosage increase he became defensive and stated he only goes off what the mom says and not the therapist At one point he became so angered he said, “fine, I will take her off the medicine completely.” This proves he does not advocate for the child!

Condescending, dismissive, rude smug. If I had a choice (insurance) my child would never go back!

Rather rude man, doesn't listen and pushes pills, some aren't even meant for what he said they were. Decided to get a second opinion.

This MD was very rude. Did not introduce himself to us or our seven year old daughter. He was openly disparaging of our sweet child in front of her. Please do not go to this doctor.
