Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
No malpractice history found for Florida.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.

Dr. Dan Sperling is a leader in the detection of prostate tumors through the use of image-guided technology. Dr. Sperling developed the 3T Multi-Parametric MRI – BlueLaser™ solutions. He specializes in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) which he uses for tumor detection, targeted biopsies (MRI-Guided Biopsy; prostate mapping, and treatment).
Dr. Sperling currently serves as Medical Director and Chief of Interventional Uroradiology at the Sperling Prostate Center in New York City.
Dr. Sperling is certified by the American Board of Radiology and licensed in Massachusetts, Florida, Maryland, New York and New Jersey. Additionally, he is certified by the Society of Uroradiology, American Society of Laser Medicine and is an American Board of Radiology Diplomate. He completed a fellowship in oncologic PET/CT and interventional body imaging at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. He completed a second fellowship in nuclear radiology at the New York University School of Medicine at Northshore University Hospital.
Dr. Sperling speaks nationally about prostate cancer detection and treatment. Most recently Dr. Sperling lectured to over 150 urologists at NYU Medical Center at the conference for Advances in Prostate Imaging and Focal Ablative Treatment of Prostate Cancer.
SPECIALTY AREAS OF PRACTICE
Dr. Sperling talks about prostate cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment
Dr. Sperling uses a high definition, multi-parametric MRI to produce detailed images of the prostate. His MRI technology provides precise images that detail the size and dimensions of the gland, allowing him to map the prostate with superior accuracy. In addition, Dr. Sperling performs several tests during the MRI to identify potential tumors and to mark these regions of interest. The results display the size and location of possible tumors in unprecedented detail. Any suspected tumors can be targeted and sampled through either MRI-Guided Biopsy or MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy. By combining the biopsy results with the prostate map, Dr. Sperling can help patients and doctors improve cancer detection and treatment planning, whether the treatment of choice is surgery, radiation or ablation, watchful waiting or focal therapy.
Dr. Sperling offers several methods to treat prostate tumors, including MRI-Guided Prostate Laser Ablation, a procedure he helped to pioneer. This revolutionary treatment represents a major shift from radical surgery and radiation. MRI-Guided prostate Laser Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that can virtually eliminate many of the risks associated with traditional forms of prostate treatment, such as impotence (erectile dysfunction) and incontinence (loss of bladder control). MRI-Guided Laser Ablation requires no inpatient surgery and is completed in less than an hour. The procedure is performed by Dr. Sperling, usually in conjunction with a urologist.
The Sperling Prostate Center provides patients and doctors precise prostate cancer information for detection, treatment planning and follow up. Our comprehensive detection protocol creates a detailed prostate MAP that provides exclusive visual details about the size, location and shape of any prostate tumors - critical information for guiding a biopsy and/or choosing a prostate cancer treatment.
