“I am so proud to provide fertility and family building care to patients in Tampa Bay and St. Pete,” shares Dr. Sprague. “My goal as a physician is to always listen and understand what my patients’ goals are in their family-building journey. From there, we work together to make a personalized treatment plan and find a path to success.”
