He is an excellent gastrologist. He has a great personality. He is patient and listens without rushing you. He has helped me tremendously with my problems. His knowledge for his profession is spot on. I was seeing a different Gastrologist and was not happy at all. He rushed you through and did not listen, was never prepared. I found Dr Sprung and went for a second opinion and found him to be the doctor I was looking for. He generally cares for his patients and it shows in his mannerisms and skills. I would recommend Dr Douglas Sprung to anyone. I am extremely happy with him .

When you call Dr. Sprung's office, a live person answers the phone. The staff is wonderful. They treat you with respect and don't rush you off the phone. If they say they will call you back, they will. I don't have time to read a book in the waiting room because they call you back so quickly. When I begin to read the book in the exam room, Dr. Sprung walks in. Less than five minutes. He is very attentive and listens without interrupting. I believe he is an excellent physician and truly cares about his patients and will tell you the truth. I highly recommend this office.

Felt a little unwelcome. The office is setup very standoffish. Then Dr. Sprung explained that he no longer works with liver patients, which made us feel we had wasted our time coming to him.

Would recommend him to any9ne who needs a gastro MD. He was recommended to me almost 27 years ago by a co-worker who said, "he saved my life!" She had colon cancer and he took care of her through the whole process before and after he worked with her surgeon. He actually listens to what you have to say & answers your questions & has a sense of humor , when appropriate. Very personable MD, and I deal with a lot of physicians.
