No nonsense. Dr. Straight to the point and very knowledgeable. Fast service compared to many Dr. offices. If expecting balloons and happy clowns during visit, probably not your place.

Arrogant, Rude, and verbally abusive Man. I would never take a family member, let alone myself to see him as a patient. He should retire.

The lady at the desk weighs you and takes you to the room but doesn't ask you any questions and takes no vitals. I've waited in an EMPTY office for up to 15 minutes for the Dr. to come into the room. When he came in he acted annoyed and was arrogant and condescending. I never deserve to feel like I did something wrong when I leave my doctors office. PS: The office is a MESS and STINKS like mildew.

When my mom kept avoiding routine mammograms (She kept saying that since she had one a couple of years ago she don't need another one until 5-6 years). Dr. Sharma called the hospital imaging department and had her seen right away after her routine checkup at his clinic. We are very grateful for his care as the mammogram found a tumor which turned out to be a very aggressive form of breast cancer in its early stages. Our mom is alive today thanks to Dr. Sharma.
