Dr Sharma and his Physician Assistant Emily are both great! He put me back together and I’m walking normal again after my fall on the ice.

Dr. Sharma was recommended highly to me as an outstanding and skilled surgeon. I have not been disappointed. Dr. Sharma has been willing to listen to and address the multitude of questions that I have. He is always professional, as well as considerate and caring. My surgery went well and the recovery has been without difficulty.

I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Sharma and the care that he provided for me following an injured shoulder. In addition to rotator cuff repair, he also reconstructed my bicept area. After my first 24-hours, I was relatively pain free throughout my healing process Dr. Sharma is very kind, takes extra time during the visit and ensures I understand the procedures and future expectations. If you are looking for a healthcare professional to perform shoulder repair, he is your man!

I had gone to several doctors over the last several years for pain relief and the only thing I got were cortisone shots. They stopped relieving the pain a couple of years ago. Finally, I asked Dr. Sharma about it and after MRI and a consult he knew what needed to be done. Had surgery January 4, 2019 and pain gone same day. He is fantastic.

I had surgery 9/25/2018. With pain meds experienced very little pain after surgery. Started therapy after 3 weeks. Range of motion was amazing according to therapist. Could raise my arm over my head without pain. I thought recovery was going to be more difficult. I am beginning my 7th week. Will start lifting light weights after 8 weeks. Dr. Sharma and Emily were very kind and I was very confident surgery would be a success. It appears at this point that it was.

Dr Sharma repaired my broken femur after I fell. He happened to be the orthopedic doctor on call when I was taken to the emergency room after a fall. I feel that I was so blessed that he was the one who did my surgery. He is an excellent surgeon and a very compassionate person. My recovery has been excellent & I highly recommend him!

The guy is a great surgeon but a poor doctor. Post operative pain management was totally unacceptable. My wife suffered terribly because this guy does a terrible job of pain management. The hospital where the surgery was done does not have a pain management department (southside) so you are left with the surgeon managing your pain and all surgeons are terrible at pain management. Great surgeon-terrible doctor. I will never deal with him or southside ever again.

Dr. Sharma's bedside manner and care was phenomenal! He was kind, helpful and provided you with all of the facts you would need for a successful recovery. He did not rush you out of the office, he took his time to answer any questions or concerns. He was respectful and actively listened to your concerns. He explained the process of surgery from prep, day of, the actual procedure and post-op. There were no questions left unanswered. He also returned my after hour call promptly the day of surgery.

Dr. Sharma has been an excellent physician for my hip problems. He is very caring and goes out of his way to make sure you are well educated about the procedure he is to perform. I would strongly recommend him to others that need Orthopedic Care.

He performed surgery on my hip when I was taken to the ER. He is not a hip surgeon yet did it anyway! He also prescribed the wrong physical therapy which guaranteed that The procedure would fail. Subsequently, I went to a real hip surgeon and had my hip replaced. Sharma should have recused himself and sent me to a hip surgeon. Very bad experience.

Dr. Sharma is friendly, highly professional and very calming. He operated arthroscopically on my right shoulder to repair a rotator cuff injury and to address some arthritis. He did an excellent job on the surgery and recovery has been fast and with a minimum of discomfort. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of orthopedic care. The office environment is modern and efficient and the staff are all helpful and polite. I can not think of a better experience for this surgery.
