I absolutely recommend Dr. Sprung. My experience has been wonderful. He is kind, genuinely cares and takes the time to listen to his patient. That's hard to say about other doctors.
in Casselberry, FL |
I would strongly recommend Dr. Sprung for several reasons... He has a wonderful demeanor and that's probably the first thing you'll recognize. He's a gentle, caring soul, and fully understands the dichotomy between western and eastern philosophies. This understanding shows in how he treats his patients. Yes, he's an MD first and practices western medicine, but he also recognizes that there should be a balance between medication and meditation. I have total faith, trust, and confidence in him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sprung since he was at his Maitland location. I appreciate the fact that he takes time with his patients and explains very thoroughly any test results and/or medical plans he suggests for his patients. During my visits he is always very careful to listen to any physical complaints and concerns before offering options of what he would suggest. He has compassion for his patients and I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone seeking a good "Gastro" doctor!!!
in Altamonte Springs, Florida |
Dr. Sprung notably is one of the greatest physicians overall. His knowledge, skills and bedside manner creates the warmest atmosphere, making one feel comfortable and at ease when addressing one's healthcare needs. His expertise covers a wide range of medical issues. Dr. Sprung has literally saved my life on more than one occasion. I trust his judgement in all areas of my healthcare needs. His staff and office atmosphere is equally wonderful. I would recommend his services to all.

very knowledgeable,will listen and hear what I say,and give me an answer to my questions and my problem. He has been the gastro dr. for my family for over a decade and has always been there for us.
in Longwood, FL |
I had seen Dr. Sprung for a problem that affected me for a long time and other gastroenterologists I had seen never actually diagnosed my problem, so I never had resolution. I was so grateful to have found a doctor who actually spent time with me, listened to me, and was able to diagnosis what I had and provide a plan and treatment. I am feeling so much better, I'm so happy, I can not thank Dr. Sprung enough along with his wonderful staff. I recommend Dr. Sprung highly!!!!!
in Longwood, FL |
Excellent doctor...takes time to explain things to you and is thorough and very knowledgeable. The best gastro I have been to. Very sensitive to ones situation.The staff is also courteous and professional....recently they went the extra step to make sure I was seen that day despite insurance hurdles. Would recommend highly. I have been seeing this Dr. for over 12 years...always there when I need him. Would not go to any other Gastro Dr.

My husband and I have both been patients of Dr. Sprung for well over 20 years. He is one of the nicest and knowledgeable doctors that we have ever know. He has a high concern for his patients welfare. His staff has always been helpful and very proffessional. We have frequently recommended Dr. Sprung to family members and friends. We recently asked him when he was going to retire. He responded that he was happy in his work and has no plan to retire. That response made us both very happy.

This was my 5th colonoscopy with Dr Sprung. He has a great bedside manner, talks to you, takes time with you, explains everything to you! His staff actually answers the phone! They are all helpful and polite anytime I call or am at the office! It's so refreshing to have an office with one doctor instead of an office with ten and you are just another number....not at this office, ever!
in Apopka, FL |
Dr. Sprung is very compassionate, understanding and helpful. His office staff are friendly and courteous which is refreshing. I am the third member of my family using Dr. Sprung, switching to him when my former doctor retired, because of their confidence in him.
in Apopka, FL |
I know Dr. Sprung for a long time since my stay in a Florida Hospital he has been my Gastroenterology I can not imagine any other one that is as kind and excelent care.
in Mount Dora, Fl |
Staff and Doctor Sprung treat you like a human and are very personable! You don't find this kind of service very often. Dr. Sprung spent more time with me and wanted to understand my issues. At no time was he in a hurry to rush off and knock out another "number". I believe Dr. Sprung and his group focus on Quality Not Quantity! Thank You Dr. Sprung & Staff!

in Longwood, FL |
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sprung and his staff. From start to finish, I completely understood what was going to happen during my procedure (colonoscopy) and for anyone who has heard horror stories about the prep- Dr. Sprung's prep was more than tolerable and makes me wonder why other doctor's put their patients through so much.
St Cloud, FL |

in Oviedo, FL |
Dr. Sprung is a great doctor. I had just about given up on Gastro Doctors.

My husband and I have both been patients of Dr. Sprung for many years. He is intelligent, explains problems and treatments carefully, is knowledgeable, clear, thorough and kind. When Dr. Sprung was going to do a procedure for me in the hospital, the nurses and aides made a point of telling me how much they respected him as a physician and as a person. My husband and I have great confidence in Dr. Sprung and his judgement. The staff has been helpful and courteous, consistently.
