Great GI doctor. Knows his stuff
I went thru 5 different GI doctors until I found Dr. Sprung. I had a very active UC. He got me on Humira shots. I have been in remission on my UC. Still dealing with IBS but getting better. I have had to do many colonoscopies. He his good at these also. I highly recommend him and his staff. His staff are really friendly and go the extra mile to help you

Dr. Sprung has helped me beyond words!
When I went to Dr. Sprung, almost 8 years ago (2014), I was mainly on plain boiled potatoes and maybe a few pieces of toast. I was going to the ER two or three times a month and had seen a surgeon, referred to by the hospital. It was a very difficult time in my life. Well, after his correct diagnosis, I was spared from surgery. Through the years, with his medical care and direction, I have continued to improve so much that I have my digestive health back. I am truly grateful for his expertise, his patience, his caring, his spot-on diagnosis and his wonderful staff. Dr. Sprung is a gift to his patients and deserves more stars than I can count!

Caring & patient
He saw my 84 yo mother who has sporadic severe abdominal distress. She has seen multiple gastrointestinal physician over 3 years with no satisfaction and her tests for 3those years have been normal. Dr. Sprung took time to review her extensive tests, make comments on them and give her reassurance that the tests were accurate and provided a plan of action for the next time she experiences the pain. I was a little irritated initially with the wait to see the doctor, but he stayed in the exam room until both of them felt comfortable with his diagnosis, making it well worth the minimal wait. His patience and manner were amazing. I'd go see Dr. Sprung the next time I need a gastrointerologist without question.

Great interaction
It is very difficult to get any type of DR to schedule new patients and to see you so mu review is based on the attitudes and service of the people who work here. They do a great job and have a very positive attitude working with what resources and challenges they have.

One of the best
The office staff is truly the best. I've never left and felt that I wasn't cared for. They are quick to help and very, very pleasant people Dr Sprung is also one of the very best doctors I've had. He's knowledgeable and finds the best way to pass that information on to the patient. He inspires confidence and provides the best care. I feel like he understands exactly what I'm going through with my IBD and he will find the best and most cost effective treatment. I high recommend this practice.

I was not impressed with him changing my feeding tube. Ended up in the hospital 2 days later with massive internal bleeding. Can I positively say he caused that, no, but I also don't believe in coincidences.

Dr. Sprung has helped me in ways I can’t even describe. When you are suffering it’s hard to believe there’s light at the end of the tunnel but following all of the doctors orders this time has really made a difference in my entire life! I’ve gone from not being able to leave my house most days to going a month or two without any issues. Which isn’t perfect but it’s definitely better than not being able to get out of my bed. The environment is extremely friendly and I love to see the girls every few months :)

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 .
