Dr. Sharpe has been our extended family's go-to Orthopedist for lots of things for over 25 years. He is an amazing orthopedic surgeon. Today he looked at my shoulder. It was bad news for me. But I am confident that the diagnosis was accurate and complete, and that the advice to delay surgery in lieu of other treatments was the best choice. We have complete trust in Dr Sharpe.

Dr Sharpe removed my 12 year old partial knee replacement and put in a full replacement and I am very pleased with the results! At my recent 2 month checkup I was given the green light to go back to all normal activities and no more therapy needed. However at my office visit the order for X-rays did not get to the right person and I waited an hour for them to be done before seeing Dr Sharpe but Dr Sharpe gave me lots of time for my questions.

I would recommend Dr. Sharpe and staff at Ortho AZ to all family and friends. All staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you. I recently had a hip replacement. From the initial meeting to the 2nd check up all was very well planned out, professional, answering any and all questions that you may have. The surgery went extremely well. I had the procedure done at AZ spine and joint hospital. I would recommend Ortho AZ, Dr. Sharpe and Staff, and AZ spine and joint hospital to all of my family and friends.

I want to thank doctor sharpe for doing an excellent job on my knee. I can tell he really cares. On the other hand when I need paper work filled out I’m not getting a response back that it’s been completed and FMLA has had issues with getting the paperwork on time. Thank you Dr. Sharpe I appreciate you and give you five stars for my knee and give your office staff a two star because I’ve had problems getting my paperwork. Thank You Florice Stewart
