His attentiveness. He’s not dismissive of what you’re saying. He genuinely seems to care. He appears to want to be aggressive in his treatment without jeopardizing my health.

Dr. Sporn is widely know as a specialist in my particular disease. But he is so much more than that.He makes the time to really listen to what the patient is asking and to “read “the unanswered questions. Patients rarely see this level of commitment from their physicians anymore. I have three physicians who do this at Northwestern and I consider myself more than fortunate. Please know how much it is appreciated by your patients.

I was so impressed that when Dr Sporn came in the room to meet me for the first time he had clearly already spent time reviewing my medical history including ct scans and X-rays going back over a decade. He then spent a significant amount of time asking and listening and to me about my medical and life history. He was able to take the images and my history to piece together an incredible diagnosis of a fungus that was endemic to the area I grew up in and that I had played in the soils, and on farms. I came away with complete confidence in the timing of the infection, confidant that it was no longer an issue and that past damage should not affect my daily functions. I told my family and friends that grew up in the same region about this as they might face some of the same questions in the future. Dr Sporn was very nice, professional, and seemed happy when I showed an interest in what he had found. Very impressed and happy/relieved.
