This was the strangest Dr visit I've EVER had! He talked in circles while repeating himself, insulted my weight and when I asked a question he made me feel like I was an idiot and talked entirely too fast. I felt like an inconvenience, not a patient! I was supposed to go back since I wasn't diagnosed but never did go back. I wouldn't go back to this Dr if he were the last Dr on earth.

If I could give zero stars I would. Dr Sponsler was the rudest doctor I've ever seen and that is saying a lot. He spent only 5 mins looking at my MRI before dismissing me as fine and prescribing me several medications I was allergic to. When I ask him if he could please check to see if there was a medication without Corn in it he said that he didn't know what was in medicine and that that wasn't his job. Not to mention his staff was all extreamly sick and gave me the worst flu I've ever had.

This "doctor" is a total jerk. After 15 minutes of my brothers visit he said our time was up, he had to go see another patient. When we were in his office again I told him that doctors not wanting to talk to their patients on the phone was wrong. Sponslor got up went to the door, said he'd be back. He never came back. We sat there for 15 minutes waiting for him to return. Every Rx that he has faxed over to the pharmacy has been wrong. We've had to have it corrected, taking 2 or 3 days to get it.
