Dr. Sharma is a pleasant, thoughtful and knowledgeable doctor. Besides his exceptional "bed-side" manner, he takes time to answer all questions, giving clear explanations of any diagnosis and procedures.

He was informative and very kind. He speaks to you like a person and not down to you like some physicians do. I am a nurse and appreciated his genuine approach by sitting by me and talking directly not across from me like I’m being interrogated. I would recommend all my family and friends to him for any orthopedic needs.

I would highly recommend Dr Joy Sharma and am happy that I listened to a trusted friend to get a second opinion of my wrist surgery. I had a plate and screws performed surgically by another surgeon and was not happy with the post-op care and had concerns about my limited progress. I found Dr Sharma to be pleasant, thorough in his exam and explanation of my fractures as well as my healing. He addressed my pain and anxiety about my future and put mw at ease. I am so glad to be under his care.

Dr. Sharma was very personable and thorough. His assistant(that took me to the exam room and asked a few questions of me) (not sure of her name or position) did not introduce herself, etc. I’m a healthcare professional and introducing yourself should be one of the first things you do, in my opinion. The front office staff was very nice and quick with checking me in. I’d definitely go back to Dr. Sharma, though I’m hoping my hand will heal soon!

I am relatively new to the area and needed surgery for a ruptured tendon. He was thorough, professional and tolerated my pushbacks on treatment. He was focused on my recovery and wouldn’t let me prolong down time, which would have been detrimental to my recovery. He communicates regularly with my occupational therapist to make sure I progress and return to my life. Being new to the area, finding a surgeon immediately can be stressful. I feel lucky to have found him & recommend him wholeheartedly

Dr Sharma takes time to listen. He answered all my questions and explained exactly what was going on, my options and his recommendations. On the two visits with him, he made me feel like I was his only patient that day.
