29/01/13 5 4 5 5 For my first pregnancy, I was a little nervous for my first obgyn appointment, and it was not at all what I had expected, it was terrible. So, I changed ObGyn's to Dr. Paul Sporn and boy was I relieved!!!! The staff were very sweet, the office was a lot cleaner and friendlier then my previous ObGyn office visit. Best of all, Dr. Sporn was amazing, he include my husband in all the conversation and really made us feel comfortable and that we had insight on our pregnancy. Spent time with us which made all the difference for me. I neve had a male provider before so I was nervous going to see Dr. Sporn, but he was very professional!!! Prayers have been answered in other words!

18/12/12 1 5 5 5 I gave birth to my son back in early 2010. The staff was horrible. No one was understanding and they were short and always had attitudes. I definitely enjoyed Dr. Sporn being my doctor, but dreaded dealing with his staff. I hope he has changed his staff since I been because I would love to chose him again for my next pregnancy.

12/10/12 1 1 1 1 Dr Sporn delivered my son 7 years ago and I am still paying for his neglect today. I had bilateral Pneumonia in my 9th month, fluid had seeped into my lungs and Dr Sporn had no idea even though I saw him almost weekly. I ended up in the hospital 11 days, my newborn went home without me and almost died. Thank God I had a cesarean which saved my child's life. The lung specialiat the hospital said I had full blown eclampsia. I also had Dr Sporn tie my tubes. Well just this last July after having this intense pain I find out he never tied them only cut them. My fallopian tubes had filled with blood from periods I was no longer having and were on the verge of exploding. This caused me to loose my uterus. I normally wouldn't complain but I am outraged even now 7 years later. The lawyer said if I had died my husband would have gotten huge money and Dr Sporn would never practice in the USA again. He is neglectful be very careful or your life could be in danger even 7 years later.

28/10/11 4 5 5 5 I have been with Dr Sporn since 1994. I started with him for well-woman exams. In 2001, Dr Sporn in an emergency delivered my pre-mature son. I continue to have Dr Sporn as my GYN for well-woman exams and for things aging women need. I HAVE FULL CONFIDENCE IN DR. SPORN. Always recieved professional, knowledgable, gentle services from him. Dr. Sporn comes highly recommeded. He's genuine.

11/08/11 5 4 5 5 I love this office! The girls are great and the Doctors are even more amazing. On my first visit the girls at the front desk were very helpful and sweet, Dr Sporn's nurse was sweet and very helpful at answering my questions. I will never change offices. This place rocks!

07/06/11 1 4 5 5 Dr Sporn is an excellent doctor: kind, understanding, gentle...however due to the front office staff, I will be finding a different Dr to deliver with. They dont put you on the schedule for things that youre supposed to be scheduled for (ultrasound). Some are very rude, while a few are decent...the bad attitudes definitely outweigh the good. There is one very heavyset girl up there that has the worst of them all. If you do not like your job, then you shouldnt be there.

09/11/10 5 3 5 5 Dr.Sporn has delivered both my son and daughter and soon to be third. His bedside manner is wonderful. I have fallen in love with the staff (so polite and out going) Dr.Sporn has gone out of his way to make sure I was comfortable and I love how he involves my husband in the appointments also. If you come in his office down more than likely you will walk out resiting a joke he just told.

30/03/10 5 4 5 5 I am pregnant with my 1st child and after having 2 bad visits at a public health center, I decided to go to a private doctor. God bless the Medicaid lady who gave me some numbers and one of them was his. HE'S GREAT! He spends as much time with me as I want and need to. He listens and talks calmy so you can understand and takes everything one thing at a time. He's really funny too. Makes you feel relaxed and welcome. I am praying that when it's time for me to have my baby he's on call so he can deliver. He should clone himself. Lol! He really takes care of his patients.

13/01/10 5 5 5 5 I will say by far I was extremely happy that Doctor Sporn overly suceeded in being the best Doctor I have ever had. He was professional and funny, we establish a great Doctor Patient relationship with both My husband and I which we adored and enjoyed every visit. His staff was also professional, kind, and courteous, when it came time to get in the paper work for my FLMA leave they handled everything to a T, and even resent all the paperwork a second time just to put me at ease with the FLMA agent. With the complications we had towards the end of the pregnancy Doctor Sporn and his Office made it as easy and stress free for the both of us and that is something I will never forget. I do highly recommend Dr. Sporn I am on baby number two and am definately stoked to drive accross town (40 min drive from home) to use him again. :) *heres hoping he takes or new insurance*

05/12/09 5 5 5 5 I honestly believe that Dr. Sporn saved my life. I went to him after seeing several doctors during menopause. I was on hormones. I had a couple bad PAP smears that he addressed with me immediately. He changed what I was taking and had me come in regularly to check what was going on. After a year I was having totally clear PAP smears again. My mother died of endometrial cancer and I knew I could be susceptible to it. What others dismissed in prior PAP smears--he addressed, and did so successfully.In addition, he is a wonderful, caring doctor. I really like him.

05/10/09 4 4 4 4 I have been a patient of Dr. Sporn for 16 years now, and I feel very comfortable and at ease with him as my doctor, He is kind, and friendly I now have a 21 year old daughter who is a patient of his too, that is a scary thing when your daughter need to go to a OB/GYN but thanks to Dr. Sporn, the decision was easy and I would not have her see any other doctor but him, he has two daughters and is a wonderful father and physician

01/08/09 5 5 5 5 I met Dr. Sporn in early 1991 while pregnant with my first child, and have always felt completely comfortable with him. I went on to have three children, all delivered by this wonderfully caring, compassionate man. In 2005 at my annual check, he discovered a lump in my breast, and advised me to have an ultrasound. Even though the results of that test found no evidence of cancer, Dr. Sporn was not satisfied. He insisted I follow up with a visit to a breast surgeon. Long story short - I had cancer, but it was caught early. Surgery, radiation, tests of every nature, and drugs are no picnic. BUT four years later I'm healthy. It's my privilege to have been Dr. Sporn's patient for more than 18 years now. Not only did he guide me through 3 pregnancies/deliveries, he saved my life!

29/06/09 5 4 5 5 When I was pregnant I went to 3 different doctors before I chose Dr. Sporn. He is really caring and I never felt rushed or left without the answers I was looking for. The only problem was that my son was born on a weekend and so some other doctor that I didn't know was on call. My son is almost 2 and I still see Dr. Sporn every year.

23/03/09 3 3 1 2 I went to Dr. Sporn regarding a medical issue I was having. First words out of his mouth: "Would you like to join our weight loss clinic?" that is NOT why I was there. Each time I saw him spent less than 10 minutes actually talking to me and I felt rushed. Had I not been so desperate for relief I would have gone some where else and as it turns out I really should have. He offered to do a procedure that had 'amazing' results. I felt I had no choice & was scared. I had it done and regretted it almost immediately. This doc literally made 4,000 in fifteen minutes. The problem he said he could help is still there but this time I am going to listen to my gut & see someone who relates to their patients and isn't trying to sell other services. I should have known better, he had Xerox copies of ads all over the office about the weight loss clinic and the device for the procedure he ended up doing on me. Not a good experience at all.

30/12/08 5 5 5 5 I was very hesitant to go to Dr. Sporn in this pregnancy. The doctor I chose before him, was very very wierd and was not a man who should be looking at women, lets leave it at that. I went to doctor Sporn and his staff was wonderful, he was so caring and was willing to do whatever it took to make me happy in my pregnancy. I had a few issues throughout my pregnancy, but he made sure I had every test in the book, every sono known to man..I mean, He cares. I wish I would have had my son with him too. I am still going to him, today even =) My daughter is now 2 months old and my son is 2. He asks about both of them all of the time. Great people person. I am moving down south within the next few months and I will miss him terribly! I wish I could bring him and his practice down to Miami with me!

27/02/08 5 5 5 5 I was very pleased with Dr Sporn and his staff, they were very helpful and kind. I would recommend anyone to see him. I had my daughter 12/02/04 and recently (02/12/08) refered a coworker to his office, I have not seen Dr Sporn since the birth of my daughter (even though I should be going once a year) and he remembered who I was, he mentioned the same thing to my coworker about my daughter (NOTHING BAD JUST A WONDERFUL COMPLIMENT) that he did in the delivery room so I know he was a Dr that cares for all of his patient individually considering how many patients he sees and how many baby' he delivers and after almost 4 years he still remembers me, my daughter and the delivery and I can barely remember what I did yesterday.
