      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.
