I was grateful for the time she spent with me. She was very organized even though there were staffing problems. She was obviously authoritative in her knowledge of my condition and options for treatment. She use visual illustrations to help explain. Outstanding. She deserves to be better taken care of. She had a new Nurse or medical assistant who did not yet have computer privileges so Dr Sparkman had to do all of that data entry.

This appointment was bittersweet. Dr. Sparkman has cared for me for a little over a year and performed 12 hours of surgery on me exactly one year ago, today. I had cancer, and she restored my appearance and my femininity, and she was always very concerned and protective of me and my feelings. I love this lady and I am so grateful that she was my plastic surgeon. I trust her completely and would do it over exactly like this again. It was bittersweet to tell her goodbye, because I am so glad to be released from needing further care, but I will miss her lovely smiling face and sweet personality.

Dr Sparkman took time to explain the risks and benefits of all options for me. I'm still undecided what choice I will make, but feel I have been given all of the information to make the choice that is best for me. Dr Sparkman was very nice and professional.

the receptionist wasn't cool at all. barely acknowledged me but I was checked in promptly. Dr. Sparkman is alright. however she spent an hour with me just to tell me in the last 10 minutes she couldn't do the surgery. anyway she's nice enough but it was a consultation and she wasted an hour of my time, when she could've come in looked at my chart with me and let me know why she couldn't do it and I could've been out in 15 min.

I have had nothing but the absolute best care with Dr Darlene Sparkman, her staff and nurses. I can't say enough great things about Dr. Sparkman. She is caring and listens well and explains the best she can about my concerns and needs for my treatment. I am beyond blessed to have had her as my surgeon for my recent surgery. I have and will keep recommending Doctor Sparkman to my family and friends or anyone who is looking to find a great doctor or plastic surgeon.
