Ratings for Dr. Gary J. Sprouse
My names Joy n been Dr. Sprouse patient for over 15 yrs. Also Christy an Jen, hv played a key role in who I am today, There's no words, going far beyond helping me get my life together and on track. At my worst these three saw me through till I got on my feet again. Educates me constantly and learning is a treasure.
Dr. Sprouse is a very caring and professional doctor, the only Dr. that I could find that really took the time to talk and not look at you as a number. He spent more time with me then any other dr. that I have been to and explained in detail reasoning for my pain (after MRI and further tests) and what to expect after prescribing me the proper medication. I am very happy to say that so far I am in the expected amount of relief of pain, enough for me to get back to work and see the qualities of life deserved.
Been going to Dr. Sprouse since 1994, he is very knowledgable and understanding, he takes the time to properly diagnos your condition (which is why he runs long and you often have to wait as the day gets longer, so go first thing in A.M.). He is a genuinely decent human being and you will be hard pressed to find a M.D. who cares and listens like he does.
His staff refused to call the insurance company to veryify that I had changed Drs because my insurance card had another doctors name on it. They were going to reschedule my appointment because they said my wife had argued with them in the past. After mmy wife called the insurance company and had them call the doctors office to verify that I had changed drs and that Dr. Sprouse was now my dr. they said ok he will see you. Dr. Sprouse came out 3-4 times and wispered to his staff (there were no other paitients in the office) giving me dirty looks they left me sitting there over an hour then everyone went into the back. I waited 10 more minutes but when no one came out I got the message they did not want to treat me & I left. I have a blood clot from my knee to my groin and the hospital said this was very serious that if a part of the clot breaks off and goes to my heart or lungs I would probably die. I hope noone w/ a serious problem goes to him because you may be wasting your time!
He has no spine. You get a prescription from him, go to the pharmacist to get it filled using your insurance and when called into Dr. Sprouses office for verification the office manager instructs the pharmacist NOT to fill it as if you were trying to fill an illegal prescription. Been a patient there for over 20 years... the first time happened for the first time a few months back and unbelievably again just recently. I might as well be a crack head. Thats the treatment you get there. The Doctor writes you a ligitimate prescription and if the pharmacist calls to verify it, the office manager tells them not to fill it... Unbelievable. I have never experienced anything so humiliating and I have been going to Sprouse for over 20 years.
He is a good doctor, I have been going to him for 15 years, he remembers our conversations, and asks a lot of questions, spends a lot of time with you, treats you with respect and seems geniunely concerned. I would recommend him as a front line family practice doctor.
