What People Say About Dr. Idan Sharon, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am a migraine sufferer that gets several monthly ones that basically incapacitate me & only allow me to lay in bed. In my google searches, I came across multiple excellent reviews for Dr. Sharon & how he is a migraine specialist so I made the appointment. He acknowledged how my issues were valid unlike any other MD & assured me that he would find the right treatment. I now refer everyone to him because he was the one & only physician to properly diagnose my condition while providing relief.

I went to a few different neurologists before but nothing was ever resolved. Someone mentioned how Dr. Sharon had helped her family so I decided to make the appointment. Dr. Sharon's staff made me feel truly valued & cared for as a patient! His office also ordered tests to get to the root of my issues and it was so convenient to be able to have those tests run in the same office location instead of all over like other MDs would. Dr. Sharon is compassionate & I felt very secure in his care!

Anyone who needs a neurologist owes it to himself to see Dr. Sharon before giving up any hope of getting the proper help that is needed! I write this review as a patient that was frustrated with going to neurologist after neurologist and basically being told that nothing could be found out about me from a neurological standpoint. Well, I knew that something was wrong and Dr. Sharon's office was the only office to find out what was going on with me and to give me the right diagnosis as well as

I am a physician and Dr. Idan Sharon is my first choice when I refer patients to a neurologist because he is an excellent doctor who will treat my patients with the very best of care and respect. Having trust in a fellow physician is always extremely important to me when I refer a patient to that doctor and Dr. Sharon is a medical professional that I would truly trust with all of my patients.

Doctor, with whom the patient feels very comfortable and at the same time with the impression that the person is in good hands. Dr. Sharon answers all the questions and the patient does not feel rushed during a visit at the doctor's office. With responsibility I can recommend Dr. Sharon to all people in need of a visit with a competent doctor.

I typically don’t leave reviews however in this situation I felt the need to put in my two sense. Dr Sharon was a kind physician that everyone deserves to have. He’s brilliant and has an unbelievable memory.. he does not quit until he finds the root of the problem and solves it! His acceptionally trained and professional staff were kind and courteous! Would definitely refer.

Dr. Sharon has been my Neurologist for over seven years. I have aways received the most thorough care, and from the very beginning it was a great combination of empathy, and information. He is extremely intelligent, and knowledgeable. Mostly, I was very pleased with his dynamic approach to my problems, and excellent ability to get results. He’s really helped me to live a more productive, and pain free life.

Dr. Sharon might be the best doctor I've had in my nearly seven decades of life. Four years ago, he diagnosed the cause of and cured my paresthesia after other doctors failed to do so. Subsequently, he cured the tingling in my head and other more minor ailments. But following my stroke in January, 2018, he was absolutely a savior. Being so generous with his time and patience, he is working with me to make progress with my vision focus and neurological issues. A great man and a wonderful MD.

My mane is Anna. I am 37 years old. I started to have frequent headaches a couple years ago. I became Dr. Sharon's patient a little more than one year ago. His office is very nice and stuff is very friendly. They did different kinds of tests on me and diagnosed the migraine. After the treatment I feel so much better. It's so easy to communicate with the office and Dr. Sharon personally. Great experience! Great doctor! Thanks Dr. Sharon, you've changed my life!!!

The only doctor's office that rings busy and is without an answering service. When someone does answer, be ready and quick with whatever needs to be said because you are made to feel like a nuisance.

I would recommend this doc without question. Dr. Sharon has helped me tremendously. He taught me how to manage the migraine and body pain that incapacitated me for many years . He referred me for all the right tests and treatments and then took the time to go over what it all means! I am forever thankful.

Personally I love Dr Sharon, he completely cares about his patients & is extremely thorough. He treats it all! I was in a bad car accident and have had neuro issues since and couldn't be happier every time I am in his office waiting to see him. Definitely the best neuro affiliated with Methodist & on Staten Island.he also has a bay ridge office

The front office is unfriendly and incapable. Many procedures are done for monetary gain instead of for the patient's sake.
