I have found Dr Sharma to be a lifesaver. She was able to diagnose undifferentiated connective tissue disease, a very complicated diagnosis. I am feeling so much better under her care. I find her to be attentive and caring as well as knowledgeable.

This doctor appeared to be unfamiliar with my well documented medical condition. That is the only thing that explains her attitude when I attempted to have a dialogue with her. This doctor became defensive and dismissive when asked questions regarding this condition. She suggested that if I was looking for a physician to actually speak to, I should probably seek a doctor at one of the University Medical Centers. After two chances, it was time to move on. Do not waste your time or money

Very disappointed. Have to remind her constantly of her own treatment thus far. Her bedside manner is very apathetic and has been defensive when I tearfully requested that it might be time to try something else. She raised her voice, saying You're getting treated here! You're getting treatment! I was appalled. She requested more blood wk and MRI, which showed the dramatic increase in disease activity I had been trying to articulate for so long. Very limiting questions typically 1-10 pain, etc.
