My parents just went to an appointment with this doctor. They had a long wait in the waiting room and when they were seen he was extremely rude and condescending to them both. My Mom has had a recent onset of dyspnea and needs help. Instead of receiving the help she needed she was treated horribly and now has to go to yet another doctor to try and receive care. Stay away from this doctor if you are in need of help. You will be wasting your time.

Dr. Sharma is an attentive and compassionate doctor. He is also extremely professional, and gave me confidence in his care for me. He took his time, making sure I understood what was going on with me, and listened to my concerns, and he found a treatment that cured me of a scary condition. He is everything one wants in a doctor. His nurse was always friendly and prompt about reaching me by telephone when needed.

Very rude practice. My mother is having health issues and every time that she speaks to his nurse she is very rude! She has issues with falling asleep and the medicine they have her on she needs changed and they said they will not change it and will just take her off the medicine all together. Her hypersomnia is very bad and they don't care to help her at all try to fix her problem. I would not recommend anyone to this place. If I were to ever inherit this issue I will never go here!

Dr. Sharma was very nice, friendly and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure seeing him.
Birmingham, AL |
Dismissive rude abrupt and an mean man overall. His wife is just as bad. She is also a doctor with a bad attitude. Neither one of them is worth your time or money. They both seem to think the patient works for them rather the other way around. Do yourself a favor and send them packing. Elitist jerks! Offices are dirty as well.

This doctor was very rude, abrupt & self absorbed. He didn't care about me. I was trying to explain difficulties I was having with CPAP, including migraines, little to no sleep, nightmares, rashes & ask for help but he interrupted & cut me off. On the paper work I had to bring back to my primary doctor he wrote "patient reports no issues adjusting to CPAP". I told him that was not correct, but he would not change it. I have canceled my follow up appointment with Dr. Sharma & will not be bac

Acted too busy and rushed through my exam. Impossible to get to his office staff without going through 3 people to get an answer. No one knows who they transfer my call to, to get an answer when I'm getting my c-pap machine. No call back after leaving voice mail.
Doctor acted like he was too busy to talk to me. Nurses could care less if they helped you or not. I will no longer be spending my hard earned money with this doctor.
It was a nigjtmare.
