in Bronx, NY |
I saw Dr. Sharon again as follow up and I must say it's been a blessing from God to have him treat my condition - a couple of other neuros that treated me honestly were horrible. Only cared about getting me out of their office. Dr. Sharon is different, very genuine and caring, and I can't thank God enough having me have met Dr. Sharon for me health. Please please please if you need a doc who cares and can TREAT you, Dr. Sharon is your guy!

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.
