What People Say About Dr. Sanjiv Sharma, MD
Reply
As a caregiver for my aging parents, I have dealt with many specialists and I cannot recommend a dr that listens with respect to a patient’s special circumstances like Dr Sharma does. I would recommend him to anyone I cared about because I trust him entirely.

Needs to listen more---especially to Women. Pushes too many tests---? If even reads prior medical records. Had to ask if knew what had started all my heart problems as related to my eye disease and thyroid. Assistant needs to do blood pressure machine properly and not leave patients arm in the air and not supported. When are machines calibrated? If ever on the traveling day ones. Nice man, just too many patients and not enough time to really know his patients.
