Practice Overview


Join Us in Welcoming Two New Providers!

Dr. Sparling has been practicing family medicine since 1996. She graduated summa cum laude from Malone College in Canton, OH and then with honors from Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed a specialty residency in Family Medicine at The Ohio State University Hospitals.  

Corinna Rush, CNP, has a Master’s of Science degree in Nursing with a focus on Family Practice and graduated summa cum laude from Otterbein College. She practiced in Westerville before joining Dr. Sparling’s practice in 2002. Mrs. Rush also remains active in training future nurse practitioners.

Buchanan Medical Arts is a primary care medicine practice that specializes in the care of both children and adults. Founded in 2002 by Dr. Timothy Buchanan, we are a practice of board certified Family and Internal Medicine Physicians.  

Our physicians provide continuing and comprehensive health care for individuals of all ages and families. The cornerstone of primary care is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focused on integrated care. We integrate the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences in order to treat all ages and genders, each organ system and every disease entity. Primary care emphasizes preventative care and long-term relationships between patients and physicians, and it is the extent to which this relationship is valued, developed, nurtured and maintained, that distinguishes our practice in Westerville.


Prescription Policies and Information

Prescriptions and refills will be handled at scheduled office visits and enough medicine will be prescribed to last at least until the patient’s next appointment. Since we expect to fill prescriptions at the office visit, running out may be a signal that it is time to call our office to schedule an appointment. We request patients be seen annually for routine medication refills. If your prescription insurance plan requires a prior authorization for a medication, you will be responsible for obtaining a Prior Authorization Form from your insurance company for your physician to complete. While our office staff and physicians do their best to help patients obtain their maximum prescription benefits, insurance plans, including drug coverage plans, are a contract between the patient and the patient's insurance company. 

If you need to change pharmacies or change your prescription to mail order, the law in the State of Ohio permits non-expired prescriptions to be transferred to the new pharmacy without charge or interruption. In the case of most mail order pharmacies, they disregard this provision and require prescriptions to be re-written. In the event that this is preferred by the patient BEFORE their next routine visit, the patient has a couple of choices: 1) make an appointment to see the doctor for repeat refills, 2) wait for their next regular visit to change pharmacies, or 3) pay a fee for the patient's physician to review their medical records and re-write the prescription - which will then need to be picked up at the office. Lost prescriptions for controlled medications (such as pain medications, sleeping aides, etc.) will not be replaced. 

We discourage the practice of calling in prescriptions as it does not allow the patient or the doctor to re-evaluate the appropriateness of the prescription, and follow the condition for which the medication has been prescribed. We do not accept calls from pharmacies to refill medications. When pharmacies call us, we request contact directly with the patient.
