Dr. Sharma is an excellent cardiologists. He listens to what you say and explains in detail. Never rushing, actually pulled a stool up in front of me and explained everything and drew pictures explaining blockages in my arteries. If you need a cardiologist, Dr Sharma is the one.

He tried to convince me he cared about my well-being, but, after requesting a cheeper medication that I could afford, he wanted my credit card number before he would make the script change. This particular medication would keep my heart from rejecting the implant. So, this would be an emergency and emtala would apply. This guy doesn’t know how to communicate. Specifically,he doesn’t listen to patients. This is a poor excuse for a doctor.

I adore Dr Sharma. He is very attentive, patient, knowledgeable and understanding. He will explain things to where you can understand them. He takes his time during appointments and will answer your questions or find the answer. I would feel very confident referring him to anyone.
