I don’t think I have ever met a doctor who sounded like a teacher. Their team, from the Pa to the doctor, focused heavily on showing me my MRI pictures, spent time explaining the MRI findings using a none model, giving me information what the condition meant and simply advised me an exercise routine using a professional looking booklet. I followed the plan like a dedicated student and have become pain free in 3 weeks, without any more appointments. Who does that? I met so many doctors before for weeks who tried pushing drugs and injections. Hats off to the group!! I heard their surgeons are equally nice. Highly recommended for a second opinion. It’s your spine bro!

On July 1,2020 I was a new patient for Dr. Amit Sharma. First I would like to thank Anna for sending me all the paperwork home before my appt. Second I would like to thank Courtney so much for all her help getting all the paperwork for my MRI done in less than 48 hour's on a holiday weekend. Plus for making all the calls so my MRI would be approved fast. Third I would like to thank Dr. Sharma for being an outstanding doctor that really listens to his patients. I walked into his office with so much pain & he explained to me everything that he could do to help me with my health problems. I am so happy that I was referred to him. Such a nice gentleman & his secretary Courtney goes out of her way to make sure that all the paperwork is done. So the doctor can order the tests. Dr. Sharma thank you so much for taking me as a patient. Thank you Courtney for all your help...??

One of the most compassionate , educated, caring doctor I have ever met. He really wants what is best for you. He came thru when others did not. Just him walking into my hospital room with his warm smile, always made me feel better. I had complete trust in him. Hated when I had to move out of state and leave his practice.

Terrible, office said they took my insurance, they did not, he did not recommend physical therapy then said I refused it. Seeing a new guy who said I could have ended up paralyzed without treatment. I don't think he took me, my concerns or my injury seriously. 0% recommendation

Dr. Sharma is excellent and spends quality time with the patient. He explains everything without talking down to the patient. The staff at that office is terrible. They will not send information due to HIPPA- but have not problem shouting your name and co pay amount across a crowded waiting room. They "disconnect" you on the phone if the office is busy- no one seems to be responsible for anything. The office needs a competent office manger.

Dr. Sharma is excellent-listens to what you are telling him. However, the office staff is terrible! I have left messages that never were sent, they disconnect all the time- they only want your date of birth and co pay- not interested in the patients. It is a same such a wonderful doctor has such a poor staff.

To start off, I had suffered in pain for 3 months before calling his office. They got my mri done prior to my appointment saving me a visit. Dr. Sharma was excellent, from listening to educating me and my husband on our options. I am glad to have found a solution to my nagging pain. Thank you very much for an amazing service!

Just a great doctor. He listens, examines, explains and teaches, like a doctor should. Why don’t they make more of them in medical schools anymore? I was given a booklet with instructions to follow an exercise routine, no injections, no surgery. I am almost back to normal. I recommend him highly for anyone with back pain!!

He is the guy who cured me out of my miserable pain after two injections. Whoever tells you injections don't work either never had one, or went to the wrong doctor. He is the man!! I would forever be recommending him to anyone in pain.

I saw Dr sharma for a year. for a large bilateral herniated discs,pinched nerves and spinal stenosis. He gave me pain meds and the injections he did only helped for a week and weared off. After my third injection gave me no lasting relief. His receptionist called me and told me that Dr sharma said to see a chiropractor and that he told me at my last appointment that he can't help me. That was a blatant lie. He's a pompous doctor.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Sharma, his staff and surgery nurses. They were kind and compassionate group of people who navigated me every step of the way while I recovered from a horrible disc herniation. For a while I was worried that I would become disabled. I am glad to have found him. This is my little gesture of gratitude Dr. Sharma. Thanks!!

Dr. Sharma is an exceptionally kind and pleasant physician. He is always beaming with confidence and explains things in simple language. I am thankful to have found him. His diagnosis of sacroiliac illness was spot on and radiofrequncy has solved my back and thigh pain for good.

I like how he navigated me through my MRI report, during my first appointment, using simple language. I was sold right there. Doctors don’t have time to sit and talk to patients. He sees the value in educating patients. His pa, Liz, is just as awesome. I had a nerve block under sedation. I just went to sleep, woke up and two days later, was pain free. I can not believe I wasted 5 months suffering through this leg pain. I would recommend him to anyone I know. 5 stars!!

Dr. Sharma is top notch. His office wall is decorated with awards from many associations, newspapers and ranking organizations. Scheduling was a bit hard as they made me go through new MRI prior to appointment. Waiting was not too bad. Waiting area was clean and looked very professional. The staff was reasonable. He had a kind demeanor. He sat down and talked to me for 40 minutes using pictures on his iPad and models off his counter. I am thoroughly impressed and hope to get better soon

This is one of the best physicians I have ever seen. Dr. Sharma comes across as a caring and informative human being. He has helped me last year in resolving my arm pain and took care of my back pain over the last 3 months. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone. 5 stars!!
