Dr. Sparks is a partner in helping me achieve and maintain the best possible health. This is what I look for in a health care provider.

After years in large organizations in Charlotte where you never see your doctor and if you do they do not know you or seem to really care this visit was a refreshing experience.

My experiences have been very routine to date. I have never had a bad experience. There's no reason why I might have.

1/5/2016

As an osteopath, Dr. Sparks was the best choice of providers to see for my shoulder issue. I was impressed with the movement tests he used to isolate an area and diagnose my problem.

12/31/2015

If I give this clinic the very best feedback possible, word might get out and I would have trouble seeing my doctor when I need to! So far, so good ...

12/15/2015

Dr. Sparks is the man. He has been such a great provider to be able to handle my complex knee/hip problems, and I appreciate his expertise and guidance tremendously. I am a Minneapolis native, and when I came to Wake it was vital that I found someone that I could trust with my body. Dr. Sparks proved to be exactly what I needed, and I would recommend him to anyone in the Winston-Salem area that is in need of care for an injury or just a regular check-up.

12/15/2015

Dr. Sparks is a very good, has a great sense of humor, explains things very good

He responds in a timely manner any time I contact him through the MyWakeHealth portal and if I need to change an appointment or ask for a refill the staff is always helpful and courteous. I hope he will be my provider for a long time. He is most excellent!!

10/14/2015

I have been using various Doctors my entire life and I'll soon be fifty. None of which, compared to Dr. Sparks, have seemed or been as friendly, attentive,knowledgeable, or caring. Before using Baptist Hospital Family Health, I would avoid going to the doctor at all cost. Now, I actually don't mind so much. It's a wonderful facility, staffed with friendly people, and seeing Dr. Sparks is like visiting a friend.
