Specialties

Dr. Merrill T Sparago has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.

  • Neurology

Truly touched.

I've been seeing Dr Sparago for at least 5 years. I can say without an ounce of reservation that he has Taken incredible care of me. He is one of the most compassionate and kind professionals I've ever known. He has an amazing ability to beautifully and intellectually make sense of a persons pain and suffering without making you feel dumb or worse the "Crazy identified patient" He is gifted beyond words when it comes to helping and guiding a person through there personal journey of recovery and transformation. If you understand going in that it is the job of both you and your DR to make your life function better his expertise will not be wasted. There is no better guide. He is a fantastic Doctor, and I'm so fortunate that I found him. If you need a DR? He is Amazing! I could go on.....

Think Judd Hirsch from Ordinary People without the cardigan and that is Dr. Sparago in dedication and manner. I was misdiagnosed and suffering for years until Dr. Sparago took the time to really listen and figure out my problem and it's treatment. I am now well for many years because I didn't give up, and because of my great good fortune of working with Dr. Sparago. He is superb. I have referred many others to him, and they all thank me profusely for the referral.
