Hands down the best Doctor in her field. She answered questions I didn't even know to ask. Its like she has some sort of 6th sense about what is gonna happen within the patients body. She knew what was going to happen before it did and applied the remedy beforehand. I count myself as VERY lucky to have had her as my Doctor for the time I did. Words are simply not enough to express my admiration and gratitude for her care and unparalleled skill. If you have her for your Doctor, you are a lucky.

Dr. Sharpless has always been pleasant and extremely determined in diagnosing and treating me in my Cushing's journey. While most doctors write off their patients as just needing to lose some weight and eat better, she genuinely understood that there was something happening to me medically, even if the test results were not completely definitive. She keeps researching and looking for new treatments and options, even after over a decade of working with me.
