Important Aetna Notice

Several  patients have reported receiving a letter from Aetna stating that “Effective 02-28-2020, [Amy Sparks] will no longer be in our network.” Sparks Family Medicine has contacted Aetna. Aetna cannot explain what generated this letter, but Dr. Sparks has a current contract with Aetna that has not been terminated. Patients who receive this letter should contact Aetna and verify that Dr. Sparks remains an in-network provider for their plan. 


COVID-19 Notice

Sparks Family Medicine is now providing office visits exclusively through telemedicine, including for patients with flu/COVID-19 symptoms. Due to the immune challenges of many of SFM’s functional medicine patients, SFM will not physically reopen until such time that restrictions are eased AND new COVID-19 cases have substantially declined.

Click here for details about how SFM will strive to keep patients safe once SFM does reopen. 

Contact with Dr. Sparks and staff is available through the following avenues. Please allow time for requests to be processed by the staff.  

  1. Dr. Sparks and the staff will still be actively addressing patient issues through the patient portal. The patient portal provides secure communication for specific patient issues. If you have trouble accessing the patient portal, please contact the staff through one of the next two methods to gain access to the patient portal. 
  2. All calls to the office during regular business hours go to voice mail, with a transcribed copy of each voice mail being sent to staff email. These emails sometimes end up in the staff’s spam folders, however, so please email the office per the next method if you do not receive follow up to a voice mail message. 
  3. The general email for Sparks Family Medicine is contact@sparksfamilymedicine.com. This email is copied to several staff members. This email is best for general questions, for patient portal access requests or for follow up on a voice mail. 

All calls to the office after regular business hours still go to the answering service. This option is reserved for acute issues. Patients with medical emergencies should seek care at an urgent care or emergency room or dial 911. 

Please frequently refer back to this website for updates.
