What People Say About Dr. Brij Sharma, MD
Reply Flag
Dr. Brij Sharma is a GREAT doctor! a man who is highly intelligent, and not an alarmist - I had a huge infection on the top of my foot - it blew up to twice it's size - anyone else would have thrown me in a hospital for 3 weeks - Dr. Sharma prescribed a specific antibiotic and within a week and a half the infection subsided. My wife and I have gone to him for years, and have nothing but good things to say about him - a great doctor and a great human being - we couldn't recommend him more!
