I have so much to say about this doctor! Dr.Sharf is the best of the best...in an emergency situation Dr Sharf was called to treat my dad at PVH. I truly believe if it wasn't for him my dad wouldn't be alive today. With his prompt attention he got my dad the help he needed and I have nothing but praise for this doctor that is a true blessing in his field. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our heart.
