Wouldn't trust my child to anyone else

Dr. Sponseller performed two surgeries on my daughter, both with excellent results. He was thoughtful, careful, and included my daughter (and her opinions) in the process. Office was very busy, but they moved people through as efficiently as they could.

Terrible bedside manner!

I do not recommend Dr. Sponseller at all. We had a terrible experience with him. First of all, making an appointment is an absolutely nightmare. The staff is unfriendly and they act as though you are inconveniencing them just by making an appointment. Then, when the appointment day actually comes, Dr. Sponseller can't get in and out of the room fast enough. He has terrible bedside manner, no personal connection to patients/parents, and acts annoyed if you ask questions. It really surprises me that he chose to work in pediatrics. Nobody in the office acts as though they like kids. He makes his nurse practitioner handle almost everything for him and they don't seem to be on the same page. I am so happy that we switched doctors and I won't even look back because it makes me sad that we wasted so much time (and tears) with him. Ultimately, yes, he treated our child and did fine. But there's more to being a good doctor than simply getting the job done.
