I really liked Dr. Sparks. Thankfully I read reviews and expected a no nonsense patient/doctor experience. Bottom line? She is confident with her 30 years of experience and does great work. I could not have been happier with her level of care.

She's very terse and so speedy that the exam didn't seem thorough. She may be quite competent and an excellent diagnostician, but her rapport is quite lacking; she's not a warm and friendly MD, but rather brusque. Therefore didn't return for a follow-up exam. If you don't mind such bedside...more
