Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I had a new patient visit with Dr. Sharp. Because of the pandemic, appointment was by video. Dr. Sharp was extremely pleasant, thoroughly went through my medical history, and asked several times, if I had any questions. He is extremely personable, and down to earth. Dr. Sharp definitely made me feel very comfortable and confident in his abilities.

Dr. Sharp is a caring physician who has taken care of me with respect and kindness many times. I would recommend anyone to him. Many Drs. don't take the time to explain why you get ill, but Dr. Sharp treats you like perso. Not just a patient.

If I could leave no stars, I absolutely would. This was by far the WORST "doctor" I've ever met. From the beginning, very demeaning in his behavior. He asked me what I wanted him to do and said I'd like to possibly get a new MRI for my back, he then proceeded to yell, I CANT JUST WRITE A SCRIPT FOR A MRI, IT DOESNT WORK THAT WAY. Well great, I thought I cam to see a primary care physician that could help me, not self diagnose myself. Help me then! Proceeded to do an exam that lasted 30 seco
