I had open gastric bypass in 2010 with a different surgeon. I had severe pain and vomiting everytime I ate anything. Dr Sharma did a gastric bypass revision 11/2019. It really well. I had a feeding tube put in to aid in nutrition/meds. I had some complications with the feeding tube after I was discharged. I was admitted again and Dr Sharma went right in to fix the problem. He was wonderful with my wife and mom. He checked on me every single day, sometimes up to 5 times a day the entire time I was in the hospital. He called my nurses every couple hours to check my status. I owe so much to him. Now I'm able to eat without pain or vomiting and I've gained weight and muscle. I feel sturdier than I have in years. He saved my life. Not only is he extremely diligent in his duties as a surgeon, but he's also so very sweet and funny. I love seeing him and although I'm glad to be out of the hospital, I miss seeing him everyday. He's an extraordinary person.

Dr. Sharma is a highly skilled, brilliant robotics surgeon, who knows what he is doing. The staff and nurses at New Life Bariatric Surgical Associates are awesome, very helpful, and encouraging through my weight loss journey. I am thoroughly impressed with the professionalism of the entire office. Doctor Sharma repaired my hiatal hernia and performed a Sleeve Gastrectomy. As I write this review, I am post-operative going on three weeks, healing nicely, and I am very happy with the results I am already seeing. My recommendation to anyone considering weight loss surgery is to listen carefully to Dr. Sharma’s advice, remain flexible, positive, and do your part in the weight loss process.

After extensive research and several recommendations I called Dr. Sharma's office to schedule a consultation for Bariatric surgery. The front office staff was very nice and got me in quickly. They have a beautiful office. Tammy, the office manager, was extremely knowledgeable and made me feel very at ease. Dr. Sharma was amazing, he took all the time I needed to answer my long list of questions and made sure I was fit to have the best outcome with my surgery. I had surgery on August 26th and to date have lost 58 lbs, This surgery saved my life, it is the best decision I've ever made. It's a huge commitment and a life long decision. I highly recommend Dr. Sharma and his entire staff at New Life Surgery Center!!!

Dr Sharma repaired my 3 Hernia’s, I was totally amazed how quick the surgery and recovery were. Dr Sharma and his staff were so helpful with the entire procedure. I had the surgery at 7:30 am and was home at 2:30 pm the same day. I would highly recommend Dr Sharma and will use him for any future needs.

Dr. Sharma IS the one of those doctor's/ surgeons that you so desperately hope and pral" and send you a massive bill. If you've been put through the ringer and are still in misery you come across. He's that 1 in 100 that will NOT play "sloppy, quick protocoy and limbo, you can stop looking for a doctor who is educated, caring, and thorough enough to get to the bottom of what is causing your issues! If your looking for a second opinion, GO TO HIM!!!! If you haven't gotten an opinion or help yet, don't waste your time. GO TO HIM!!! He is not "fluffy" while rattling off "possibilities". He listens. His expertise allows him to be straight forward in making the right call as to what the next step is. His staff is AMAZING and waste NO time getting tests and "IF NECESSARY", surgeries scheduled in an expedient manner. Dr. Sharma is TOP OF THE LINE and works MIRACLES!!!

I have been with Dr. Sharma since May of 2018. He performed the sleeve. The surgery was a great success. I have lost almost 100 pounds. He also removed my gall bladder 10 months ago also with great success. I consider him my doctor now and will not go anywhere else for surgery. He is one of the best doctors that I have ever had. He explains everything well and answers all of my questions. He is kind and considerate as well as his office staff. I am so grateful that I him for a doctor.

Excellent physician and staff! After consulting with another surgeon, I was convinced I needed another opinion. I found Dr. Sharma by reviewing reviews of experts in my area. I’m so glad I took the time to find him. I had a hernia repair and my gallbladder removed. Which Dr. Sharma removed using the DaVinicci robot. I now know this was much better than the other surgical options presented to me. He really is a skillful surgeon and my GERD that I had suffered with for years was gone after surgery. He drastically improved the quality of life for me. You want the best of the best working on your body. Go to Dr. Sharma and you will not be disappointed. Thank you Dr. Sharma and your amazing staff!

My name is Debra Skinner and I started my journey with Dr Sharma 7 months ago. I had a billiary diversion surgery as well as a Large hernia repair in December. I have lost a total of 35 pounds. Dr. Sharma is also treating me for hormone replacement therapy which has been a life changer. Dr. Sharma and his staff are AMAZING! Dr. Sharma's confidence made me feel like I was In the best hands I could possibly be in. His staff members, Tami, Christina, and Paulette have made everything so easy! These 3 ladies are a true asset to Dr. Sharma. I appreciate all they have done for me! This has not only given me my life back, but has made my family much stronger. I cannot say enough good about Dr. Sharma. He is an amazing physician and just an all around great guy.

I was referred to Dr. Sharma, to help me with my GERD and to also help me with my weight lost issues I was having. I started my journey back in February where I started with protein shakes, and other healthy foods. Then I did the whole program in 3 months lost the weight I needed too to have the weight loss surgery I needed, Dr. Sharma also helped me with my GERD which I found out I had a hiatal hernia. Which Dr. Sharma also repaired and took care of for me. I am very glad I was able to see him and his wonderful staff. I would recommend Dr. Sharma for any bariatric surgery you are considering having done!

When I first started this process I had diabetes, Hypothyroidism and PCOS. I had six miscarriages and three severely hard pregnancies. I couldn't run with my children or even play with them without being out of breath. Over ten years I had gained 100 pounds and on a 5 foot frame it's hard on the body. I started at 280 lbs. I now am on year out from my surgery and now weigh 181 lbs. Health is perfect. NO diabetes, thyroid is normal and am healthy. This surgery saved my life and my family.

I had a robotic Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Sharma and I could not be happier with the results. Dr. Sharma took the time to listen to my questions and concerns and he answered them thoroughly. I have not have any complications whatsoever and I have been able to stay on track with my weight loss using his program. He and his staff are incredible and I would recommend them to anyone. This has been a wonderful experience.
