Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

No concern for the law or patients
There was a shortage of my daughter's medication so the pharmacy filled what they had in stock. I explained this to Dr. Sprinkle and he refused to send in another medication to be filled when she ran out, insisting that the pharmacy should illegally fill the remainder of the controlled substance. I explained to the receptionist that this was against state law ( 21 CFR §1306.13 ) and asked to have Dr. Sprinkle speak with the pharmacist and he flat out refused to come to the phone. There was no concern for the law, and there was no concern for my daughter.

This guy is not a good doctor at all. I have seen Sprinkle for about 6 years, He is uncaring, unlikable, and arrogant. Its the usual “take this and get out” never really bothered to ask about how the patient was doing or cared about any issues I was dealing with. Pretty uncomfortable environment if you ask me. The medication I have received from Sprinkles didn’t work. The amount of bad reviews Sprinkle has makes alot of sense and I am just adding one more bad review to this sorry excuse of a “doctor” I have officially cut ties with VPA and Sprinkle just so I don’t have to deal with these ignorant people again. FYI, front office wasn’t very friendly either. Sorry, actually no i’m not. Not worth the time or money. Sorry, actually no i’m not. Good riddance. 100% do not recommend Albert Sprinkle.

He’s always on time, the front office staff members are friendly and helpful, and we also see a therapist through the office who has been such a delight for my child to work with! Dr. Sprinkle quickly found a medicine that worked for my child and has given him his life back. His grades are better than ever, he’s no longer getting sent to the principal’s office on a weekly basis, and he finally seems like the happy kid I always hoped he would be. Thanks, VPA!

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!

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.
