Dr. Sharma's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sharma "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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sharma "A passion for helping others led me down the path of Medicine into a career that allows me to provide my patients with high quality healthcare. As a professional Pain Management Physician with extensive training and experience, I bring a holistic approach to medicine in order to find comfortable and effective solutions for everyone.I am Board Certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology for Anesthesiology and Pain Management. I have completed residencies in Internal Medicine and Anesthesiology and have also completed a fellowship in Interventional Pain Management.

I started 'Alliance Spine and Pain Management' to create the kind of partnership with my patients that will improve symptoms, create better functionality, and promote a superior quality of life. I believe that the greater understanding my patients have of their condition, the better position they are in to cope. Knowledge is power, and I empower my patients to the best of my ability."

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...more
