Sparlin History

The Sparlin Clinic was opened in 1954 in its current inner-city location by Dr. Eugene Sparlin. Compelled by an urgent need for a conservative treatment center in Sylvan Hills and the surrounding communities, Dr. Sparlin purchased a small conveniently-located piece of property that is five minutes away from the State Capitol, Langford Parkway (Highway 166) and interstates I-20, I-75, I-85 and I-285.

On the property sat a small house which Dr. Sparlin converted into a chiropractic treatment center. Dr. Sparlin built his practice by educating the community on the benefits of chiropractic and proactively reaching out to nearby industrial companies such as the Kraft/Nabisco Company and Delta Airlines for which he developed corporate wellness plans. During a very turbulent and racially charged era in Atlanta history, Dr. Sparlin also advanced the Civil Rights Movement: He allowed African American patients to enter the center through the front door.

Around the year 2000, Sparlin Clinic became Sparlin Health Care and incorporated a medical team, and in 2002 the Clinic acquired Georgia Occupational Medicine.

Today Sparlin Health Care is a sprawling 8,500 square foot facility that provided chiropractic and medical care.  Over the years, our doctors have treated thousands of patients including professional athletes and several celebrities.
