I wanted more than anything to provide a stellar review. Dr. Sponaugle's near $100,000 program did not work. Not good with patients, a-sympathetic, typical Lyme abuse I witnessed to a loved one. Loved on left the clinic worse.

Doctor Rick Sponaugle saved our children's lives.

Before coming to Sponaugle Wellness Institute our children were suffering from severe neurological lyme.

We witnessed a rapid deterioration in their health similar to what the mother in this article describes.

We also experienced significant challenges within the Canadian medical system and knew we needed to come to Florida for help.

The Sponaugle Wellness Institute is a medical clinic who employs highly qualified medical staff.

Dr. Sponaugle is brilliant and has been vigilant and compassionate in his treatment of our children during the entire time we've been here.

There is nothing more reassuring to us as parents than knowing our children are in the best possible care available.

Our children have experienced astounding transformations under Dr. Sponaugle's care and we can never thank him enough for giving us our kids back!!

Doctor Rick Sponaugle, I contemplate and firmly believe, is a doctor who knows where he is going and wont stop until he gets there, who knows not only what he wants from life, but what he has to offer in return.

I just get amazed by people so called "competitors" that don't have the knowledge, experience and care that Doctor Rick Sponaugle and Sponaugle Wellness institute have and try to keep throwing empty negative reviews where only true patients should be able to share about their own experiences with Sponaugle Wellness Institute.

Doctor Rick Sponaugle is a doctor and truly a decent man of God with unbeatable and unbelievable qualities. I understand that you do not get to be a Lyme specialist without causing others to want a little of your success and talent. And I believe that is due to your own light and success that you will always attract these so called "wanna be" specialists that are truly trying to get where you are without the proper technical knowledge and honest years of work and dedication.

Because of this I am coming forward about my experience with Doctor Sponaugle. I highly recommend you to call the clinic and find out for yourself what I am talking about. Not only Doctor Sponaugle but his whole staff of nurses and support team always treated me with me with the highest care and respect.

I can convey this, because I have been disabled for six years now, unrelated to the dependency of opiates, that provided me with the exposure and opportunity to consult with an enormous amount of doctors, one would ever believe to seek in a decade-all of which are overwhelmed with patients and fail to remember I am a person and patient, not just a number with on open pocketbook for ongoing payments.

Dr. Sponaugle who expects no more from others then he is willing to give, who meets lifes challenges head on and gracefully accepts both victories and disappointments.

I invite you do your own research like I did mine. Call them, seek help and see for yourself what I am telling you: There is always hope and I couldn't be happier with my experience with Doctor Rick Sponaugle and Sponaugle Wellness Institute!

Heres to Dr. Sponaugle who is successful and self-confident without losing his ability to be understanding and compassionate. Heres to Dr. Sponaugle because God blessed him to be the most wonderful person in the world that I have ever met or encountered.

When I started to get better with the Sponaugle Wellness Treatment it hit on how sick I really was.

I was missing out in life more than I knew. It was a rough road getting better but I knew in the end on how thankful I would be.

There was much worse I had to go through being sick with Lyme and its co-infections that I knew I could get through any treatment. I was so excited about feeling better.

I am no longer the girl who looks just fine but was always sick. That’s a great feeling!

I am very thankful for what Dr. Rick Sponaugle does. Sponaugle Wellness Institute is an amazing place to be a little apart of.

They save people’s lives in so many, many ways.

Last year this time, driving down to Sponaugle Wellness, my wife had her eyes closed the entire time.

She couldn’t open, the motion sickness, the nausea, I am mean, everything. And then she came here, got her treatment with Dr Sponaugle, she came back home. It's like the first six months of our marriage we have a life again.

And that’s what we’d like to promote to everybody her treatment at Sponaugle Wellness because she got sick immediately after her tick bite and we had eight years of our life was dedicated to find out what was wrong.

She came down here in a wheelchair, she spent some time with Dr Sponaugle, she comes home for Christmas, she had her Christmas… it was awesome. And New Years we’ve had six months of kind of a new marriage.

To wake up and say: I am going to work, I know my wife is going to be alive when I get home and taking care of my babies. It’s some uplifting .

And this is from him. If we hadn’t come down here, this wouldn’t be possible. She wouldn’t be here. So, it’s truly amazing.

I just want to say that Dr Sponaugle saved my wife's life. I want you all to know that!

After two years going to conventional doctors and neurologists to treat my chronic pain, muscle spasms and fatigue I was given the diagnoses of MS along with several prescriptions . I was told I would have this condition for life!!

When almost giving up of hope, my husband researched online and discovered Sponaugle Wellness in Florida.

Meeting with Doctor Rick Sponaugle was unlike any other doctor’s appointment I have ever had. I got to talk!!! He listened, asked several questions and understood my suffering.

Over the last year these are a couple things that have healed on and in my body:

The feelings of numbness, tingling, and pain on my arms and legs are completely gone! I am now able to walk without holding on the walls, I actually feel that my legs got stronger.

My energy level increased 100%. My blurred vision is now cleared and I no longer feel pain when moving my eyes.

What can I say: Doctor Sponaugle and the Sponaugle Wellness Institute team saved me from a life of uncertainty and loss! Don't give up hope, if you do, there is not a lot left to help you fight!

When I walked into the Sponaugle Wellness Center, I had been searching for answers for more than a decade. I was a complete mess. I had zero energy. My energy was so low I was unable to walk and even sometimes talk.

My entire day was spent in bed, not longer after my first year of chronic fatigue, I ended up accepting that I needed a wheelchair. That was by far one of the hardest decisions I ever made.

After eight years, symptoms were piling on symptoms. Not a single doctor of the 18-plus doctors I saw could ever explain my list of over 30 symptoms.

You start loosing hope when nobody else can help with your pain or even diagnosing the cause of so much distress on my body, my soul and my life.

Dr. Rick Sponaugle diagnosed me with Lyme disease and after 10 weeks of treatment I felt like a new person.

I have my energy back and so many of my symptoms are gone. But don't think this is just a walk in the park, you need to be patient, follow the instructions from the doctor an staff.

I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for Doctor Sponaugle and his wellness center. They gave me hope when I had none.

I am so grateful that now I am be able to now take care of my small children and return to work. I know I still have some work to do to make myself completely well, but I can now return to having a normal life after years of searching for answers. I will be forever grateful!

Dear Dr. Sponaugle, It is with the deepest gratitude that I write to thank you for saving my husband’s life.

This week one year ago he was detoxed by you after developing a tolerance to exceedingly high doses of narcotic medications prescribed by physicians for pain accompanying his chronic illnesses.

He was taking more pain medication than is taken by many individuals who suffer from terminal cancer. He had developed so many side effects from his medications that it was difficult to tell what symptoms were caused by his illness and pain and what symptoms were caused by the medications independently.

The medications had left him physically incapable of managing the day to day tasks much less the demanding work schedule he enjoyed prior to the onset of his declining health. He had begun to question the desirability of continuing his life under these circumstances.

With only a few noteworthy exceptions, his physicians during this interval were non-responsive when we attempted to discuss our concerns and fears.

Their only solution was to suggest changes in medications- from higher doses of one narcotic medication to higher doses of another. I began my search for alternatives.

Dr. Sponaugle, I believe that we were led to you by God. When I read the verse from Jeremiah on your web site, I felt that my prayers were about to be answered.

Conversations with you further cemented this belief. I was impressed from the start with the depth and breadth of your medical knowledge.

You were familiar with the problems associated with my husband's condition, and you worked with us to develop a" game plan" for managing his physical pain, post detox.

From the moment we arrived, to the day of our departure, you were concerned with my husband's physical and emotional health as well as his spiritual well-being-this latter issue having never been addressed by any of his physicians to date.

You always greeted us with a cheerful countenance, and you helped instill in my husband a positive attitude, a belief that all would go well. I had no fear of the detox procedure. I knew that in your hands, my husband would fare well.

I knew that you had been blessed from Above and that a Larger Hand was directing events. Notwithstanding the exceedingly high doses of narcotics that my husband had been taking, there were no complications or problems associated with his detox.

My husband had no withdrawal symptoms and no side effects from the procedure. We traveled home with a certain hope that life would return to at least some semblance of normalcy. We have far exceeded that expectation. It is now one year post-detox.

We thank you for giving so much of yourself during my husband's stay as well as during the subsequent months to his detox.

While we are exceedingly impressed with your skills as a physician, we are even more impressed with the care and concern you have for all of your patients and for your fellow man.

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers always.

One of my family members had amazing results from treatment at Dr. Sponaugle's Wellness Center.

We met Doctor Rick Sponaugle and he is wonderful.

We saw others get better as well as a result of the treatment they received at Dr. Sponaugle's clinic.

We also saw some that did not improve that much, so not everyone does get better.

You need keep in mind that the disease does not affect everyone the same way and unfortunately some patients can always get the same results we hope to have. But what I saw was a very involve doctor working countless hours to provide everyone the best care. Everyone that was receiving treatment at the same time we were there could clearly see that. I do believe that is what you expect from a great physician!

I don't know of any physician that can cure everyone. The one thing that bothers me some is the testimonials that Dr. Sponaugle posts.

While I know many do get better after being treated by Dr. Sponaugle, there is one person in a testimonial that, although this person did see improvement with treatment, is still struggling with health issues and whose health is still very much up and down.

This person's health ups and downs are being attributed to mold exposure which may be the case, I don't know. I just think it's important to know that this person is not experiencing the fairy tale ending the testimonial implies. This person may eventually have this fairy tale ending at some point. It just may take more time.

Having said this, I definitely think this clinic is worth looking into if you are not getting better, as the treatment my family member had was life changing for our entire family and I am glad we made the decision to seek treatment at Sponaugle's Wellness Center.
