My husband had been admitted to the Emergency Room and admitted to the hospital in Round Rock with diverticulitis. He was given antibiotics for four days and released from the hospital with oral antibiotics. One week later he was worse. I took him to the ER in Burleson and the admitted him to Baylor All Saints Hospial. The minute we saw Dr. Sharif in the ER I liked him so much I asked him if he would be our Dr. during our stay at the hoapial. He said YES. He saved my husbands life !!

I loved him and his staff. His residents and interns were great. I was very sick and they took excellent card of me and I am fine.

I would highly recommend Dr.Sharif to anyone who desires a trustworthy, experienced, caring surgeon. .I have had major surgery performed by him and about to have cancer surgery performed by him again..You can literally trust your life in his loving hands..He's a true gift from God.
I had emergency gallbladder surgery with this Doctor several years ago. He never visited me during the 6 days I was in hospital. He never once followed up to see how I was doing and my gallbladder had ruptured! Now in 2017 I just had bariatric surgery and my Doctor told me that when the open gallbladder surgery was done the organs were packed too tight resulting in my stomach and liver growing together. This made my surgery more complicated and recovery more painful. I can't recommend him.
Irving, TX |
This Dr. came by my hospital room and gave me hid card. When I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Dr. Dave sent my info to his office and I was given an appointment for Thursday, dec. 8th,2016 at 2 p.m. His office was closed and we could not reach anyone. They never responded to attempts to reach him. I could never trust this Dr. now

Dr. Sharif was brought in on my case because I had angiosarcoma and was bleeding internally. I had lost over half my blood and the bleeding was difficult to stop. He literally saved my life. I could not be more thankful for his surgical skill. He kept my family updated on my condition and was very compassionate.
