My household are all patients of Dr. Sparks. We find him to be kind, thorough, knowledgeable, and caring. He lends his time well to his patients and doesn't make hasty decisions about their care. Explains things very well...cares that you understand what he is saying. Never waited over 20 minutes to see him. Office is well staffed so patients get the care they need...even if they may not get to see him. Makes great referral for specialized care. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Sparks...unmatched!
