There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

I love Dr. Sparich, but his new duties at the hospital prevents me from seeing him as often. He only can see me on routine office visits. I cannot see him for anything in between my routine visits. I feel more comfortable seeing him than other doctors in this practice. My husband should be seeing him more frequently because he is a diabetic, but instead of every three months, he can't see him only every 6 months, nd I don't feel that is often enough to monitor his bloodwork and A1C.

Dr. Sparich couldn't be more wonderful. I feel he is very caring and friendly but always professional. I love that he includes me in decisions about my care. My husband feels the same. I hope and pray that he will be our PCP for a very long time. Pulling him away from family practice any further would be devastating to both of us.

I would not recommend my physician because it is almost impossible to get an appointment with him. you can have an appointment with Sandy DeBias easily.

Dr. Sparich is the best doctor a person could have. He truly cares about me and asks many questions as to my overall well being. He does not rush through and exam and keeps me informed of what is happening with my health. He discusses, not orders, and explains why I need to do certain things to improve my health. I appreciate Dr. Sal and his friendly and professional manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a doctor.

The doctor did not look at mt chart before speaking with me. He aslo tried increasing the dose of my antidepressant after informing me he was unsure of the max dose for the medication I am on.

Excellent physician top notch big asset to your facility.

I have known Dr. Sparich for many years and even before he was in private practice. I followed him to Geisinger Hazleton when he left his private practice. I always have a good experience with each visit because he is a true and compassionate professional. I hope he will be my primary care physician for a long time.

I always recommended people to this provider in the past, but due to limited availability, I no longer would.
Sep 11, 2015
Dr. Sparich is very easy to talk to & he answers any question I don't understand in terms I can understand.
Sep 8, 2015
A little too pushy on some care matter.
Aug 25, 2015
Dr. Sparich is an exceptional diagnostician and caring physician. While I understand his need to advance his career, hopefully his new teaching position will not take him away from his patients. That would be an extreme waste of his talent.
Aug 24, 2015
He knows suggested protocol, follows it and explains it
