My son has been seeing Dr Sharma for many years. She is the most effective and caring doctor he has ever had. She cares for him as a human being as well as a patient. Dr Sharma is very responsive to all messages we have left, always taking the time to call and discuss issues and concerns. Our family could not recommend her more highly.

This is my first review ever. In good faith, I could not allow this poor experience to ococur without warning others. I cannot find words to express how tramatic the experience of working with Dr. Atula was for our family. She was completely disorganized & scattered, difficult to schedule appointments with or even get in contact with. Worst of all, she completely dropped the ball with our son's meds. Our son struggled for years with mental health issues and finally agreed to take med's right before heading to school. After sending emails after emails as to what pharmacy to send the prescription to, she never made it happen. He left for school, and never was able to get his prescription filled. I literally BEGGED her numerous times to call in the prescription but she never got it right. All that time, energy and pain for nothing. She may be a good doctor but all we had to go by was her ineffectiveness and lack of care or empathy. Don't walk, run!!!

She is phenomenal! Dr. Sharma has worked with my child d’or eight years. Only she was able to accurately diagnose his multiple Disorders. She listens to both the child, and the parent. She returns after hours calls promptly. I’m thankful we found her!

I would NEVER recommend this doctor EVER! All she is concerned with is money, not the patients well being . She refuses to fill a rx for a patient unless being seen just so she can collect money for a patient visit . She told us to pay out of pocket until the scheduled “virtual “ doc visit which would be in two days . My out of pocket pay is $100. And If she refilled the rx it would only be $15 for three month supply .So , rather than have her patients well being at hand she would rather have them go without meds and have their health at risk . I thought doctors took an oath. She is NOT !

Understanding, practical, and available. She took me in when no one else would and has actually helped. Although the help was mainly through medication, talking to Dr. Sharma feels like speaking to a peer. Someone with a no s*** answer that reinforces that what you're already doing is wrong or what you need to be doing. Her office staff has had a huge turnover but you can finally call during normal business hours and get an answer. She also answers questions after hours and is knowledgable in other areas of medicine other than psychiatry. Highly recommend.

Dr. Sharma has been amazing with my daughter! She takes her time to review all symptomology and all of her medical and psychological history. She takes her time to listen to my daughter, and has been very good at parsing out comorbidities. I am only giving her four stars because there have been a couple instances where I feel she didn't hear our medication concerns. But she has always been very prompt in returning phone calls and very helpful.

Inexperienced office staff. Tends to push programs at hospital facilities when she has no answer to the issue at hand.

My daughter has been in Dr. Sharma's care for almost 10 years now. Her conditions are complex and we greatly appreciate Dr. Sharma's expertise, care, concern and patience. We have had experience with many doctors; her level of care is far superior. She is also well regarded and respected among her peers. She always takes the appropriate amount of time to address concerns during appointments. Her staff is always professional, courteous and serves her practice and patients well.
