Hello Michael Buchsbaum,
You should better wait for Sitefinity SP4. There are some performance optimization in Sitefinity SP3, so if you experience such problems you could upgrade to SP3. The upgrade between 3.7 SP2 and SP3 should be smooth, because there are not so many architecture changes.
All the best,
the Telerik team
