I have been seeing Dr. Sharma for a few years now and I won't go anywhere else. He did a carpal tunnel release and it has made my life so much easier. I will be going back to get my other hand done very soon! The staff is always pleasant to work with and Holly is great! They have listened to all of my concerns and have helped me figure out what is best for my situation.
Kaitlin - Thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful words. I will be sure to pass along to everyone here. Best, Sarah

Dr. Sharma and his staff were great to work with. They were always available for my questions/concerns and never made me feel as though they were trivial. Dr. Sharma was patient and caring throughout the long time it took my finger to heal. I am grateful to be able to wear my wedding ring again.
Thank you for the kind review! I will be sure to pass along to everyone here.

Dr. Sharma was so encouraging to me at our initial visit for a deep wound on the middle finger of my right hand, a few days after my ER visit for the injury. He was a wonderful communicator, very encouraging to me about my finger's recovery. At my second visit, he continued to be encouraging, and then took the time to answer my questions about my other hand which has Dupuytrens. I now regard Dr. Sharma as my go-to hand doctor for all future issues! He is kind, patient, and informative.

He was very professional and friendly. He explained all the procedures in a way that I could understand. His office checks up on me to ensure that I am following the strict medication regiments and reminds me of my appointments. I was more than happy with my quick healing time.

Was a patient for one yr. scheduled Basal Joint Arthroplasty on my dominant hand. He was very inflexible with my FMLA paperwork. Had me returning back within 10 days and would not budge despite showing my job description etc. His assistant said "Well you could type with your left hand." I found this extremely condescending and unprofessional. Cancelled surgery and going elsewhere. I did a lot of research and 10 days is not enough time. I do casework at a very high volume. I write, type all day.
We are sorry that you were dissatisfied with the restrictions given for this procedure. The protocols maintained by this physician encourage early movement and it is our belief that the use of only one hand for ADL's does not encumber most from keeping a productive schedule. Please know that our CMO, Dr. Bowman stands ready to speak with you further at any time, simply call 804-560-5017.

Nurse taking specific information concerning my injury was rude and abrupt. She did not seem to be interested in any specific details which may have been helpful when determining my condition. I left the office feeling as if I had received the "diagnosis of the day" and to come back in three months. Many of the physicians assistants are not professionally attired with visible tattoos, body piercings, etc.
Hello - Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I am very sorry to hear about the experience you had with our clinic staff, as that is not up to our standards of patient care. Please be assured that I have passed this along to our Office Manager Becky Hines, so that she can address your feedback with the team. Best, Sarah
