What People Say About Dr. Peter Sporn, MD

Dr Sporn is caring and concerned about me. It is as if I were his only patient for the time we are together. He has diagnosed and treated my sacroidosis for 3 years. He is the head of the sarcoidosis group and involved several specialists to check and treat me beyond pulminary care. EXCELLENT is not high enough praise for him and the whole team at Northwest Medecine. I have never seen such a well coordinated group if medical professionals ever.

Dr. Sporn is treating me for a rare autoimmune disease. He’s one of very few doctors with specific experience in treating this disease. He’s been exceptional in his care and engaging me in learning about the disease, treatment, and improving quality of life.
