Dr. Sprung has been the best doctor I have seen in Florida. Been dealing with medical condition for about 3 years. After 1 visit he was able to provide me the correct medication and now I am at least 80% better.

Staff very professional. Office clean and welcoming. Dr. Sprung was great. Took his time listened and knows his stuff. Good visit all the way around. Only thought would be to suggest exiting onto hwy 436 as its closed at Douglas to eastbound traffic.

Routine Colonscopy performed September 2019. The doctor's office staff was very helpful and friendly and the doctor himself was very responsive and informative and more than willing to answer questions. Didn't rush visits and appeared genuinely concerned. Entire operation went off without a snag..or a polyp for that matter. I highly recommend him
