I was admitted to Immanuel Hosp. about 6 yrs. ago. Dr. Sharma was assigneded to me, I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder in 1993 So I have had several different Psychiatrist thru the years. I had found a fantastic Psychiatrist in 2003 but I had a setback with family issues, which ended up throwing into a bipolar episode, which led me to Immanuel, Dr. Sharma was fantastic! Like others have said, he listens to everything you say and figures out the best treatment that will help you get back on track. The first day I met Dr. Sharma I told him I was bipolar And he said: " No you are not bipolar, You have bipolar disorder!" The first time any doctor said it that way to me. He made me realize that my disease didn't have to consume my life.

Dr. Dharma is very compassionate and listens to what you have to say. He does not give meaningless platitudes. He takes his time and does not rush me or make me feel as though I’m taking up too much of his time. He is not only an exceptional doctor, but a friend.

Dr. Sharma is a great doctor! He is very intuitive to my medical condition & steps to help me. He is very skilled at explaining medication & medical procedures that help me. I was at the lowest of my lows when I was recommended to make an appointment w/ Dr Sharma after I had spent years with other psychiatric doctors with no positive results. Dr Sharma helped SO MUCH!!!!
