Worst doctor Ive ever seen unless you want to be overdosed on depakote, also its concerning to me that he got raided by the fbi and ripped off the government 165,000$ dollars this guy is arrogant and the only doctor that performs electric shock therapy IMO hes a total freak. I suggest you find a stray cat and talk to it before dr spare

I seen Dr. Spare years back. In the year+, I was under his care, not one time did he make eye contact. My meds were changed constantly, which ultimately lead me to being hospitalized. Now I provide transportation for an elderly man under his care. His mental status became very out of character, it took over a month to get him seen. I have waited in the parking lot at times when he's okay to go in by himself. I have witnessed drug deals and altercations among people in the parking lot. Sad!
