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
