Dr. Sharpe gave me complete confidence in his ability to have full knowledge of my complicated hip issue and displays concern and compassion. He took extra time to try to clearly explain this issue to both myself plus called my husband to do the same with him. Because of the "virus", only the patient is invited to this appointment so he wanted to make sure my family was informed as well. I greatly appreciate his professionalism and his command of the situation.

Dr Sharpe is thorough and very knowledgeable. He takes the time to talk with you and listens! Not a Dr who comes in and Is not willing to talk about alternative treatments and precautions to take so that the issue does not get worse.

If you want an arrogant Dr. who won’t listen to your concerns after he screwed up your hip replacement surgery, this is the doctor for you. He yelled at me in front of his whole office staff when I tried to tell him that my leg is now longer than the other. I hoped he was correct and that it would feel better in time but since then ( almost two years later) I’ve had nothing but problems. My back pain is terrible, my knee is getting bad, I still look ridiculous when I walk, my other hip is getting worse, and my whole leg that the hip replacement was done on is numb with pins and needles running all through it. I’m afraid to go back because of how horrible my last experience with him was. The last few weeks, the hip has been clicking out of joint and hurts to move after I’ve stood on it in one place for a few minutes. I don’t know what to do and feel completely helpless.

On February 12, 2019, Dr. Sharpe removed my right bi-polar hip prosthesis (implanted by another surgeon) from a traumatic fall I suffered thirteen years ago. Dr. Sharpe then replaced it with a total new hip with his preferred choice of liner and cup for my socket. At age 77, I was scared to death to go through another hip replacement, but I had no choice because of the pain from the deteriorating cartilage in the socket from that first surgery. Dr. Sharpe was empathetic, comforting, and compas

I had a excellent experience with Dr. Sharpe. He squeezed me in on very short notice. I was discharged just over 24 hours later and have had no complications. Dr. Sharpe’s approach enabled me to heal relatively quickly and return to work within 6 weeks. I’m quite confident in Dr. Sharpe’s abilities and would recommend his total hip replacement to others.

I can walk because of Dr. Sharpe. in 2015 I had fallen and broke my hip in 3 places a year later I was still in pain and unable to walk without a walker or cane. My first visit with Dr Sharpe he diagnosed that my hip had not healed. I was scheduled for a hip replacement. within 4 weeks my pain was gone and I could walk.My leg had been 3/4 in. shorter and he corrected that..Not only is he a good doctor he is a great person.I an so thankful I found him.

I was referred by my PCP due to pain in my right hip which made it difficult to walk. Entire office was pleasant and efficient. Had an x-ray of my right hip and was examined by Dr Sharp. He has a very nice 'bedside manner' and explained the results of my x-ray and made a drawing to facilitate explaining of my situation. Referred me to physical therapy. I would definitely recommend this physician.

Dr. Sharpe performed a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago, and the outcome is better than I could have anticipated. Dr. Sharpe and his team instilled confidence, so I knew I was getting the best care through the entire process. The in-house physical therapy facilities was an added bonus to my healing. I highly recommend Dr. Sharpe. He is my hero.
