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.

Dr. Sharma explained why he recommended not to operate on my spine. I understood and agreed with him. He realized there is a problem in my hip and sent me to orthopedics and now I have a diagnosis for that. He noted my right hand is wasting from carpal tunnel and did surgery. Great outcome. I've been waiting for a doctor to fix carpal tunnel because I've had trouble for years. He finally addressed the issue and my right hand is better. Believe me other patients, push your doctor to address your health concerns or problems. Don't let it go. His nurses and office staff are great as well. I send a message and get an answer promptly.

Dr Sharma preformed emergency surgery on my 85 year old father for a massive brain bleed. He was honest in explaining the risks, and gave us hope in explaining the outcomes. The surgery went better than expected and now just a week after surgery my father is in rehab In his hometown for a few days and then will be going home! Dr Sharma is a skilled physician and a wonderful human being. His warm and gracious personality made post surgery communication so easy. My father always looked forward to seeing him each day. He and every member of the ICU team made our father’s stay so comfortable and enjoyable. I can not say enough good things about our experience with Dr Sharma and his team!

I've had surgery twice with Dr. Sharma. The first time 2 years ago for a compressed Ulnar nerve. Dr. Sharma informed me the surgery would prevent further damage, but wouldn't guarantee reversal of the damage from the pinched nerve. I regained strength in my fingers but still have slight numbness. I had surgery for Carpel Tunnel on the same hand. Testing for Carpel Tunnel showed improvement of the Ulnar nerve surgery. There are no guarantees but I am confident of success in this surgery.

I needed an emergency laminectomy due to an abyss (infection) in my lower spine. Dr. Sharma was wonderful explaining the procedure and risks (high risk of mortality or morbidity) but also explaining that this was a life saving procedure. Surgery started at 8:00 pm and went until 4:30 am. Dr. Sharma saved my life and was so humble about it. Great bedside manner and a wonderful human being. Very caring. I’d recommend him to anyone.
