Dr. Sharma is truly one of the best people on the planet. My experiences with her are always pleasant, and she knows how to make a patient feel secure. As a doctor, she is the best ~ and as a human being, she is even better! She's wonderful with me, understanding and patient with my family ~ I could not ask for a better person to help me on this journey.

Dr. Sharma is a very knowledgeable, kind, empathic and experienced oncologist. She is currently treating my mom for metastatic lung cancer. My mom and I adore her. She delivers news (good or bad) in a way that doesn't steal a patient's hope. She is just all around awesome, and so is her staff. We feel so very blessed to know and be treated by her.

Dr. Vandana B. Sharma and her staff are an excellent medical practice from which to seek treatment. Dr. Sharma has been my Dr. for over twelve years. Her care is patient-centered and thorough. She is brilliant, caring and very knowledgeable about the most current research. Her staff is highly skilled and dedicated to serving the needs of the patient. The PAs, nurses, scribes, lab techs and office staff are positive, helpful and a caring. Every begins with a greeting and a smile.

I have been seeing Dr. Sharma since Nov. 2013 for metastatic breast cancer, and thanks to her, I just celebrated another birthday. She genuinely cares and is attentive to my well-being. She sees me prior to my receiving chemotherapy and, she closely monitors tumors with scans, adjusting medication accordingly. Thanks to Dr. Sharma and her highly competent staff, my battle with cancer is easier and not so scary. I couldn't fight this fight without such wonderful people in my corner.

Dr Sharma has put together a wonderful and caring staff.....everyone there, from the receptionist to the infusion nurses and interns appear to care deeply for you and your situation. Dr Sharma and her staff try their best to keep everyone's spirits high, especially since we are all there for not the most desired reason....cancer or related illness. It was disruptive when her office moved not once, but to two locations in about 2 months time...but everyone handled it as best as can be possible.

In my journey with breast cancer seeing many Doctors, I have to say Dr. Sharma is the most insensitive and uncompassinate Doctor I have ever seen. Don't waste your time. Find another Doctor.

Worst doctor I have ever come across.... extremely insensitive. Dr Vandana shows off more than she actually knows. Being direct is quite different from being insensitive and rude. She was so insensitive to my dad who was a cancer patient. My family had to ask her to leave my dad’s hospital room because of her poor behavior and barred her from further visits. If you are looking for a caring sensible doctor, please look somewhere else. She clearly lacks compassion and is in wrong profession

The nurses in this office are terrific. However, my father, who has terminal cancer, went in for an appointment where he was to receive information regarding a recent scan. When he checked in at the front desk he was given his final bill. He came over, sat down and said, Well I guess there's nothing more they can do for me, they gave me my final bill. The final bill showed charged of around $40 and that it hadn't been submitted to the secondary insurance provider. Incompassionate!
