Please join us in welcoming SGF Tampa’s newest reproductive endocrinologist, Dr. Rachel Sprague, who is also US Fertility’s 100th network physician! Individuals and couples alike who are seeking to fulfill their family building dreams can now begin their journeys at our Wesley Chapel office.  

Dr. Sprague earned her medical degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine. It was during this time that her interest in reproductive medicine came to light when she was exposed to the concept of in vitro fertilization and the intricacies of early pregnancy. The interest intensified throughout her clinical rotations where she experienced first-hand the bond between patients and their physicians.   

She pursued her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where she served as Residency Class Lieutenant and earned the Fund for Excellence in Research Award. Dr. Sprague then traveled to Florida to complete her fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at Morsani College of Medicine at the University of South Florida.  

Exemplifying Dr. Sprague’s passion for research are her contributions to research abstracts presented at medical conferences nationwide on topics including the environmental effects on a person’s ovarian reserve, preimplantation genetic testing, and endometriosis. Additionally, Dr. Sprague contributed a book chapter on in vitro fertilization in the Encyclopedia of Reproduction, Second Edition. Dr. Sprague is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the American Medical Association, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society.  

Dr. Sprague provides fertility care for patients at SGF Tampa’s Wesley Chapel office. In her free time, she enjoys exploring, singing, and dancing with her husband, two children, and bulldog, Hank.   

Get to know Dr. Rachel Sprague 

Dr. Sprague: It is a field of hope, support, and exponentially expanding knowledge, and one that will always challenge me to be better. To me, there was no other specialty like it.

Dr. Sprague: To be a member of the SGF team makes me proud. SGF has a long reputation of producing impactful, high-quality clinical research and of practicing evidence-based medicine for the betterment of their patients. I am privileged to be surrounded by sincere, intelligent, and committed people who constantly strive to make a positive difference in the lives of their patients.

Dr. Sprague: Listen and understand; be honest and forthcoming. I want to learn what is weighing my patients down, so that, together, we can navigate through the bumps in the road. And if we come to a roadblock, we can work through those difficult decisions that may require a change in course.

Dr. Sprague: People who overcome adversity with grace.

Dr. Sprague: Items on my bucket list include sleeping in an ice hotel and see the Northern Lights, becoming fluent in Spanish, and meeting Charles Barkley.

Dr. Sprague: Soccer was a big part of my life growing up, as it taught me the value of team commitment, resilience, and respect. This has now evolved into running and yoga, which help bring me mental clarity and calmness.

Dr. Sprague: My husband and I love to explore with our two children and our bulldog, Hank. We enjoy meeting new people and hearing new stories. At home, music, song, and dance are the essence of our family life.
