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.

Explained the procedure and showed a drawing of what would happen. Discussed the process of getting approval from the insurance company. Also, talked about the potential for infection. I was well informed after leaving the appointment.
