I really like Dr. Sparkman! She is thorough, attentive, and I believe she truly cares about my health and well being. I really appreciate her knowledge, skill, and good humor. I've had many doctors in two states, since my cancer journey began; and I have to say that Dr. Darlene Sparkman is a treasure! I feel blessed to have found her.

Dr. Sparkman is an amazing doctor but she's much more than that. She truly cares about her patients. She actually listens to what I have to say and how I'm feeling. She never rushes me and goes over every aspect of any and all procedures.

The care provider arrived with a calm positive attitude. She smiled and projected genuine concern. She came to the meeting prepared with a diagram that helped to clarify what she had learned from the biopsy and MRI. She was patient with me, answering each of my questions.

Doctor Sparkman was excellent. I was anxious due to a previous experience with a plastic surgeon who dealt with my BFF who has cancer. Doctor Sparkman was professional, reassuring, and understanding of my situation. she allowed time for my questions. she did not seem rushed. I left feeling relieved and reassured that if I choose plastic surgery I would be in good hands.

She inspires absolute and utter confidence. She is thorough kind, complete, thoughtful, follow through with what she says she's going to do, perfectionistic and personable. She's fabulous. And I am a physician myself so I hope she gets extra points for that.

Dr. Sparkman is the absolute model for what a physician should be. never have I had a doctor so thoroughly explain to me what was going to take place and why, including my rights as patient. she made me so completely comfortable I hardly noticed what was happening. I recommend dr. Sparkman to anyone!

I adore Dr Sparkman. Not only is she very competent in her field, she asks good questions and always makes me feel like I've been heard and understood. She has been able to help correct some problems I had with some previous surgical issues and she does so with a bright, calm, upbeat approach. I'm very happy to have her as a part of my medical team!
