What People Say About Dr. Sunil Sharma, MD

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!

I would highly recommend Dr. Sharma to my family and friends. He is an excellent doctor. Scheduling of appointments is very easy. His office environment is very clean and comfortable and his staff is right on point. I have complete trust in him. I always have questions and he answers them well so that I understand. He is not in a rush when seeing me which I like very much. My sleeve surgery was a huge success and I would do it again. On top of everything else, Dr.Sharma is a nice person.

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.

Their has been something wrong with me ever since I had my gastric bypass surgery in 2005. I have been to several doctors and even had my gall bladder removed by one doctor. Dr. Sharma on the very first visit was able to diagnose and show me on an x-ray what I have been going through for 13 years. I believe that I have found the Dr. that really knows what is going on with me and he explained it all to me in terms that a layman can understand.

Dr Sharma saved my life. He performed surgery to resection my colon for acute Diverticulitis. When openining me up I was a mess...I had over 10 mini perforations and my colon adhered to most of my internal organs. Instead of putting a colon bag and cutting me wide open, he worked on me slowly throughout the day. Every Dr I spoke to afterwards told me they would have opened me up. I healed quickly and was back to normal in 9 days. 1 year later I am in the best shape of my life!

After Schirmer has a unique combination in my experience at least of compassion knowledge ability and tact. He will work through any issues you have related to bariatric surgery or other may be affecting your results of the surgery. I highly recommend especially to older people on Social Security and Medicare because this is really a lifesaver for those of us over 65 who have had problems with obesity for many years and now might have problems with diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, and other.
