I was a patient for about 15 years. I once trusted and believed that Dr. Sparks and his staff had my best interest in mind. Even when he had me taking five different medications a day I believed but then my reproductive problems started. I went to specialist after specialist and was finally able to have another child with a lot of help. I couldn't prove that all those meds were to blame but my confidence was shaken. When I asked if the meds may have affected me in that way I was kind of shocked by the dedefensiveness displayed. The question seemed vaid to me because by that time 2 of the meds had been pulled from the market, but the response I got was something to the effect of.... Why would you come back to see me if you thought I caused that? I was speechless, but the answer was that I wanted to believe in my Doctor. Since then I have gone for annual check-ups, flu, routine prescriptions and referrals but I don't let him treat anything serious. After much prodding from family and friends I am going to find a new doctor... I only came to Sparks because my first doctor retired and because I grew up in an age that believed in science and by extension doctors, I never thought I'd change doctors again. I finally lost the last bit of respect for him when a Pharmaceutical Representative came in with lunch for the entire staff as I was leaving.... He had tried once again to prescribe Statins for me and he seemed to me to be a little put out when I refused them again.
They paid close attention to me and all of my questions were answered. Their staff is very friendly and professional. I was very satisfied with my visit. They were helpful and I left feeling encouraged. The office was very easy to locate. I didn't have any trouble finding it at all. I have been going to Dr. Sparks since the early 90s and he has been of great help to me through several crises I have had.
