Ramon Unseitig – Sep 25, 2021
Is there anyway possible to leave less than one star??? Been a navy wife we have moved over 16 times in the last 26 years, and I have had numerous doctors for myself and my family. Dr. Sharma, appeared to be helpful at my very first visit, I explained to her all the medications I had been previously prescribed and why, but whenever I needed a refill on anything she would be referring me to a specialists!!! Has been rude, unprofessional, unhelpful, and appears to know nothing at all medically!?

Mourad in Escondido, CA – Oct 16, 2017
This doctor and I have had a very adversarial relationship since our first visit. I asked for and received several letters for her to write for a legal case and it looked like it had been typed by a third grader. She gets mad if you ask to be treated a certain way. She refers to all my integrated medical procedures as Holistic which is not true. I have a licensed medical doctor prescribing things. I have tried to share with her articles and requests to see how I can get treatments covered

Deborah in Ramona, CA – Jun 04, 2017
Probably one of the most unintelligent doctors I have ever seen. I am shocked this individual made it through medical school. Can not fathom addressing this person as a doctor. I would never ever consider seeing this dr. again. I am sure a nice person. But from my experience, totally unqualified to be a basic medical dr. Her nurse was far more aware, educated and intelligent.
