Dr. Sharma is very personable and, from my experience, excellent in his field. I felt 100% comfortable with him and would have no reservations about visiting him again should the need arise. Literally, the first thing I said to the person driving me home was, "Wow, he was a really cool guy and that was much easier than I thought it was going to be."

Dr. Sharma told me my only option was cortizone injections. I got these injections at a facility that he partially owns, which set off a flag. I got 2 other evaluations for other doctors who gave me several other options, phys. therapy, oral medications, ect. I feel like Dr. Sharma was steering my toward using a facility he has partial ownership in over treating me in the best way possible.

Dr Sharma has made a real difference in managing my pain from degenerative disc disease. Three months ago, I had burning debilitating pain in my quadriceps. He injected nerve blocks into my lumbar spine that stopped my pain. Later, Dr. Sharma also injected steroids into the facets of my spine to address my pain and decreased mobility in standing, sitting, and negotiating steps.. His treatments were spot on. He and his staff are professional, positive and friendly. My sincere thanks.

The reason I am writing this review one and half years after Dr. Sharma treated me is that I can honestly say that in my case I have been pain free since the day of the spinal injection and hope to never have to see him in a professional doctor patient meeting ever again. He did a great job. Very professional and kudos to his staff as well.

Wonderful experience while dealing with painful condition! I was dealing with serious back pain for over 20 years and had 2 previous surgeries. Several months ago I experienced foot drop due to back problems. Dr Sharma and Dr Sullivan put together a treatment plan and now 4 months later I feel like I have a new lease on life! Staff is courteous, friendly and accessible. Brand new office and it is spectacular. Dr Sharma was friendly, personable and engaging! Great doctor and great staff!

Dr. Sharma is outstanding! He didn't just help me manage my physical pain; he helped me get past the emotional pain and pushed me to grow in my personal life. He is upbeat, tender and genuinely cares about my well being. Pain no longer controls my life. Thank you, Dr. Sharma. I am an ongoing patient with chronic lower back pain & sciatica.

I tend to prefer femalphysicians:however, Dr Sharma has proven to be the exception. He listens carefully to what you have to say,follows up with excellent questions and comments. He has helped me immensely with a congenital problem which has plagued me for years and no one else has been able to help. Putsimply,he and his PA Ms Scott(who is also outstanding) demonstrate what I find to be a rare ability in their profession to think outside the box. He is very personable, recalying family details
