      I have been a patient of Dr. Sharma since mid February. I followed all of his recommendations in order to be approved for the Sleeve Gastrectomy. I was approved and had my procedure mid June. I am only 3 weeks post-op and I can not begin to explain how much better I feel already. Dr. Sharma is one of the nicest people I have ever met, not to mention an amazing surgeon. He makes you feel 100% comfortable with everything you will endure and gives you the motivation to achieve your goals.

      The obese may know the anxiety at a bariatric surgery consult. Add knowledge as a dietitian to my consult with Dr. Sharma and the anxiety was over the top. Remarkably, Dr. Sharma lifted the tension by walking in calmly well dressed introducing himself softly and having a seat next to me -- at a kitchen-type table, not conference room or his office. Without using his notes, he highlighted my needs and his recommendations taking as long as needed to answer questions. I recommend Dr. highly.

      I received a revision from a lap band to a roux-en-y 08/15. Best decision of my life, and without Jody and Dr Sharma's reassurances and detailed explanations, I would still be waiting instead of within 15 pounds of goal.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
