I had the surgery in August and can't believe how much weight has come off, not only did Dr. Sharma did a fantastic job but I felt hardly no pain after surgery and even after going home. I can't wait until I get to the weight I should be at. Thank you Dr Sharma and I will recommend you to all my friends

I had RNY gastric bypass by another MD and had problems for almost a year. In the first visit he told me more than my surgeon did in a year. I required a revision done a week ago and never realized I could feel this good. For the first time I can eat without pain. I have to remind myself it has only been a week. I expected to feel worse than the first time, not 100% better, especially this soon after the surgery. If you are considering surgery, he is you man

My wife was in pain for a year. The surgeon who performed her first bariatric surgery really messed it up. What should have been 5 hour surgery was done in 2 hours. Dr. Sharma thoroughly explained every thing two me. She has been out of surgery for one week and is 95 percent pain free. She never felt this good after the first surgery. Dr. Sharma is a first class surgeon and has given my wife her quality of life back. Without him, who knows what would have happened. Thanks Dr. Sharma. You ar

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.
