Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My mother in her early 90's had a femur fracture in September of 2021. She did the surgery and was a success. She was walking again after nine weeks instead of the twelve + based on her condition (age and osteoporosis). During her follow up visits, Dr. Sharp answered all our questions, explained in detail the X-rays results and, best of all, very concerned and understanding of my mother's occasional pain she still feels. She is excellent!!

Excellent outcome after surgery. Motorcycle crash resulted in torn ligaments and widening pelvis and broken wrist. Waking in recovery with very little pain, I was definitely relieved. Was told I would be in a wheel chair for two months. Got out of bed and walked two days after surgery. Very impressed with Dr. Sharp. I feel extremely lucky that she was my surgeon. One hundred percent recommendation. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

My 30 y/o son recently had ORIF surgery by Dr.Sharp yesterday at PVH. When Stephen first saw Dr.Sharp, she was very thorough, informative and to the point. He immediately trusted her, which is rare because he has paranoid schizophrenia, which she was not aware of, he is still being diagnosed and is in denial that there's anything wrong with him. His being able to be mobile again is really important to his mental health, riding a bicycle is a physical outlet that decreases his stress levels. TY!!
