consultation about having hip surgery
I did not like his remark "I don't care if you have hip surgery or not I have plenty of patients" This was with other medical staff in the room.

Dr Sharpe is a gifted diagnostician and presents me with more than one option of care for a given prognosis while explaining the probable outcomes for each. Excellent communicator and I leave his office with a good understanding of options and next steps.

Above and beyond.
During my visit with Dr Sharpe he realized that I had been prescribed a medication that had very real serious side effects. I had been prescribed the medication for an issue unrelated his profession. The root cause of the serious medical problems that had led to the prescribed medicine had not been identified. Dr Sharpe was so concerned that my medical issues had not been properly diagnosed that he personally called a rheumatologist and expedited an appointment with him. Dr Sharpe was genuinely concerned with my overall health and was quick to direct me to a specialist that he felt could help. Of the many doctors I have visited over the years Dr Sharpe impressed me as a person who genuinely cares for his patience’s overall health. Dr Sharpe also effectively addressed all of my concerns related to my problems with my knee pain. I definitely will recommend him to anyone in need of an orthopedic doctor.

I met with Dr. Sharpe today to go over an ongoing knee problem to make sure there isn't anything that would require surgery. He assured me that it isn't at that point. Dr Sharpe was very helpful with recommendations that could reduce my knee pain without medication or surgery. I was in and out within a half hour. Staff was very efficient and pleasant.
