Dr. Rajesh Sharma, MD
My training began in New Jersey, where I completed a full residency in Internal Medicine at the Jersey Shore University Medical Center. That experience allowed a deep understanding of the complexities of the human condition that I would face throughout my career. While at the famed Cook County Hospital in Chicago, I completed a residency in Anesthesiology. I was faced with the challenges of a busy, exciting operating room. Trauma, complex cases, and the opportunity to train with a world class health care team helped shape the type of physician I am today. Remaining at 'the County' to complete my fellowship was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had during my training. Taking care of patients from all walks of life and circumstances, under very challenging conditions taught me dedication, resilience, and perseverance. I entered private practice after completion of my fellowship in 2011 and have been striving to bring about the greatest level of functionality and quality of life for my patients. What brought me down to San Antonio? I first came down to Texas after being awarded a scholarship by the American Pain Society to attend their annual meeting in Austin during Fellowship. After that experience I waited for my chance to come back for good. When the opportunity to join a practice in San Antonio arose, I could not wait to return. My wife and I have been here since March of 2015. After spending some time within a group practice, it became clear to me that the best way to be able to serve my patients the way I truly want to would mean having to go out on my own.

Patient Comments (1)
in San Antonio, TX |
He is very kind and compassionate when you are in the room, however, if you need something done outside that time, he "might" remember in a week! I once complained how his Medical Assistant never returned numerous calls, only to actually hear him tell her, "Oh, she complained about you not returning her calls...yada, yada, yada!" So I made an appointment (only one; and you wouldn't think it could get worse....) They have an answering MACHINE, not an answering SERVICE. UNBELIEVABLE!!!
