I've been seeing Dr. Sporter for a few years now. He is an excellent doctor and has really helped with my dust allergy. He is one of my favorite doctors to visit. He is always super friendly and explains things verythoroughly. Honestly, I wish all of my doctors were as friendly and helpful as Dr. Sporter! I've already recommended him to multiple friends looking for allergy help.

This was my first time visiting Dr. Sporter and I have to say it was a very nice visit. His staff and nurses were incredibly sweet. My reason for my visit was because I was very concerned about my hives Ihad for several weeks. Dr. Sporter was very professional and very nice. He explained thoroughly the reason why I've been getting hives and how to treat them. He made me feel comfortable talking about my hives because it made me self conscious about my skin. He answered all my questions. Highly recommend him!

Everyone at this ENTA location is really nice, from reception to the nurse and the doctor himself. Dr. Sporter was friendly, had great bedside manner and didn't run away screaming when he saw the million and one things I'm allergic to,or try to convince me to get rid of my pets, which I appreciated. Turns out my lungs are in pretty crummy shape, but we have a course of action that will get me breathing better again. I don't really have any complaints. I'm happy that I made an appointment with Dr. Sporter!

I've been seeing Dr. Sporter since August 2015. I have horrible cat allergies and asthma, and I live with two cats! He made it so that we all can live together happily. He's very attentive, and is always honest about expectations.I wanted allergy shots, but because my asthma was so intense when I first started seeing him, he said no to the allergy shots until my asthma was under control. Ten months later, I'm a candidate for allergy shots! Yay! He truly knows what he's doing and I'm happy he's my ENT doc.

Dr. Sporter was incredibly generous with his time and his answers. I've seen three allergists in the past few years, and he was the only one to do a breathing test. The test indicated some possible asthma that may be thecause of some of my symptoms! I appreciate his thoroughness and explanations.
