in River Ranch, FL |
All 3 people we met at the office were knowledgable, courteous, profrssional and made us feel as we were the only people in the world. (Receptionest (Jess ?), Rebecca and Dr. Sprung). It was our daughter who made the initial contact and Rebecca spent all the time Lynne needed to talk about her Dad's needs and problems. Jess (?) gave me as much time needed to help with registering on line and downloading the required forms - I am most appreciative of her time and patience. Dr. Sprung gave confi

Patient of his over 20 years. He is extremely sensitive to all the problems that go along with any "gut" related issues..... For me and my family history, this is important, having lost a Father to colon cancer and a brother with colon issues. Dr. Sprung does not go "overboard" on prescribing medicine until other methods have not worked . He listens to all that you have to say concerning your symptoms and questions you have. Highly recommend him. Office staff is great. Very professional MD.

If you're looking for a Dr that doesn't over book & will give his full attention & time to you then this is the dr for you. He is so very understanding & caring. My husband & I have been going to him for probably more than 10 yrs & we love him.
The Villages, FL |
Saw Dr. Sprung after an initial consultation with another GI specialist & I was immediately impressed by his maturity, his office demeanor & his low key self confidence. Without excess drama or heightened sense of urgency, he encouraged me to monitor my symptoms & to return for another OV in 3 weeks (if I wasn't ready to schedule the colonoscopy at that time). Subsequently, I decided to proceed with it & it turned out to be the right decision. The findings were insignificant, but worthwhile.
in Orlando, Fl |
This was my first appointment. I was seen on time. The office was clean and the staff was friendly. I like the fact that I can communicate with them via email, saves a lot of time and energy. The doctor explained the procedures at a level that I could understand, I appreciate that. Everyone was very professional. I am a US Army veteran and usually would not recommend doctors outside of the VA but I will recommend this office to any one I know. Keep up the good work!
Altamonte Springs, FL |
Dr. Sprung is a great doctor! He is caring, knowledgeable and he gives you all of the details you need to know without beating around the bush! He is definitely a Doctor I can trust, and I know that his best interests are with the patients. I would recommend him to anyone who needed a GI. Thanks Dr. Sprung!
in Altamonte Springs, FL |
The most helpful and patient doctor I have ever been to! He really listens and helps me understand what the problem I am having is and what steps we will take together to fix it. The office staff is so friendly and helpful too! You're in good hands with this office and doctor!
Apopka, FL |
Dr. Sprung is a very patient, soft spoken doctor who listens to his patients and gives helpful advice and correction in a non-condemning way. His staff is friendly and helpful, and the office is clean and comfortable. We've never had to wait long as he is punctual and doesn't overbook, and he takes his time and doesn't rush you and you feel like he really cares about his patients. My husband and I are patients of his, as well as our daughter and son-in-law.
Longwood, FL |
I was very happy with the staff and the Doctor. Dr. Sprung spent a good amount of time with me answering all of my questions and explained everything to me.
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.
in Deltona, Florida |
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.
in Altamonte Springs, FL |
Dr. Sprung is always kind and patient. He always explains things thoroughly and never minds being asked a lot of questions. My appointments are always quick and easy!
Lake Mary, FL |
I have been his patient for several years. He takes time with you and has a calm manner. He tries to take a conservative approach to treatment before any extreme measures.
in Apopka, FL |
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.

in Winter Park, FL |
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.
in Longwood, FL |
I've been a patient of Dr. Sprung for more years than I like to admit (at least 15) and have been extremely satisfied with his care. He is everything a physician should be - knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and kind!

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!

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!

Dr. Sprung is attentive, soft spoken, caring and very polite. His staff is equally good too.WIsh all my other doctors were this good.
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 |
