I was a patient of Dr. Sharma in 2005 when he was in a different practice. He was the most compassionate empathetic doctor and seemed very committed to helping me get rid of my pain. I had already been to another pain doctor without success. He listened to me and tried a new drug that had just been approved by the FDA and it worked so well! I was so sad when he left that practice but so thrilled to find him in Joliet. He truly cares about his patients.

Dr. Sharma is caring, considerate and knowledgeable. He answers all my questions, his explainations are easily understood and he is not in a rush to get to the next patient. I have had good pain relief with his procedures. The staff members are helpful and considerate as well.

I have been to a number of pain clinics in a few states. All have take about as much time with me as it takes to throw out old fish. Dr. Sharma took the time and effort to find the cause of the discomfort. The folks working in the back are great. I would highly recommend Dr. Sharma.

Very disappointed in every aspect of this office. I was rescheduled twice, offered several different names of who to talk to regarding billing, was told it would cost me over $6k, was told it would cost me less than $2,300, was told procedure would take 20 minutes, was told procedure would take over an hour. When I asked for a refill on medication I was told I would have to come in for a follow up (after holding for 15 min). A follow up from what??? I never was able to get treatment!! Avoid!
