What People Say About Dr. Kavita Sharma, DO

Terrible at epidural steroid injections!!!!!!!!!!!! She dug and dug and dug, and gave me an epidural hematoma. DO NOT USE THE SERVICES OF THIS D.O. She is NOT a M.D. and her osteopathic versus medical training is obvious. She is also mean-spirited and doesn’t care anything about patients. Shrugged her shoulders when I admonished her for not returning phone calls during an episode of acute and severe pain.

Saw her for steroid injection. Made my pain worse. On follow up visit, I told her how much pain I experienced. I tried to ask about future pain medicine on a temporary basis & she cut me off. She was rude & dismissed me like I wasn't worth her time. She is extremely moody. First visit, she was bubbly & friendly. Second visit, she was rude, degrading, & intimidating. She would not let me ask my question & she left the room. Humiliating experience. Waited 3 hours at 1st appnt.

Dr Sharma is one of the most caring and honest doctors I have ever met. This woman's skill combined with real empathy for her patients makes her the very best in her field. I have only met one other doctor in the pain management field that seems to care about the pain of their patients. Dr Sharma's empathy, skill and honesty make her the very best.

Practice sees patients as dollar signs I read of human beings that are in pain and need help. Sharma specifically lied to me, refuses to fill out ANY paperwork go help patients (disability, pre-authorization for prescription, etc) Had to beg and plead for years to get meds changed. Her mood seems to be one of the biggest factors in how you'll be treated. Her practice was bought out by a new company that only cares about money and not how patients are cared for or treated.

I saw Dr. Sharma last year for sciatica. I felt she did a great job at explaining to me what my MRI showed and what exactly was causing all my discomfort. She scheduled an ESI to be performed the day following my initial consultation due to the degree of pain I was in and the desire not to use pain medication. She scheduled a second ESI for 10 days following the first one but I didn't need it, my pain was almost gone and has stayed gone for almost a year. I will def go back and see her.

Dr. Sharma grows very agitated at even simple questions, outright shouting if the patient voices any concerns that she overlooks, which are many. I went for my third visit with her today, and she has yet to even read the notes of past doctors and was actually totally unaware of the nature of my injuries. I would literally go to a veterinarian before seeing her again. Uncaring, unprofessional, unknowing, and ill tempered. I only wish that I could score her negative stars.

She is very concerned about telling about her & her family's education...I believe that she profiles apon looks & questions. .instead of explaining a question, she tends to go on about her family education & does not explain or listen to educate the patient.. She decides against her associate's advice & makes it clear she is right. I have been going to PRC under a different Dr for years...have only had 5 visits with Dr Dharma and my pain has increased tremendously!
