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.

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.
