Good communication skills, genuine interest in patient's well being. Friendly, efficient office staff.
in Oakland, CA |
I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Dr. Sharma was condescending and rude. Does not take the time to listen. Her dismissive nature is irresponsible and detrimental to her patient's care. Doctors like her should be avoided.
