Dr. Amy Sparks operates Sparks Family Medicine, Ltd., a family medicine practice specializing in Functional Medicine in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dr. Sparks completed her Family Medicine residency at the University of Kansas in 2000 and opened Sparks Family Medicine in 2002 with the mission of providing patients a family practice health care home. While growing Sparks Family Medicine from a solo practice to a six-provider group, Dr. Sparks sought to maintain the quality of care, patient service and sense of community associated with the “small town” practices that Dr. Sparks remembers from her residency in Kansas.
