in Hasbrouck Heights, NY |
very easy to connect with, speaks in clear, concise and caring manner, well versed in her job expertise and very easy to talk with. Compassionate and seems to truly care about you, the patient. I feel confident she will find a solution to my pain issues and enhance my quality of life. Highly recommended if you're seeking pain relief.
Dr. Sharma significantly reduced my chronic pain. I look forward to my days now instead of dreading getting out of bed and being forced to deal with my back issues. I have gained back hours of my day, compared to only being good for a few hours and then needing to sit with the heat pad for the rest of the evening unable to move.

in Newark, NJ |
Dr. Sharma is wonderful; thorough and compassionate, taking plenty of time to talk with her patients and really understand their symptoms. She referred my husband to a wonderful neurosurgeon and called her in advance to explain his case so that we could get an appointment right away. Too often these days, doctors rush you out, don't pay attention to what you are saying or don't care.I cannot say enough about the care we have received here and would recommend Dr. Sharma without hesitation.
