Glen Allen, VA |
Nice guy. Great bedside manner. My surgery was totally unsuccessful and had to be redone by a different surgeon.
in Chester, VA |
He is an excellent doctor, very forthcoming with details , and an excellent surgeon. My rotator cuff surgery went without a hitch and had no pain and trouble with recovery.
in Chester, VA |
Out of 3 having knee replacement, I am the only one with perfect results. The only difference was the surgeon. After 5 months, I am doing great! Thanks Dr. Sharma.
in Chester, VA |
Dr. Sharma is a very polite physician. He listened to my concerns and offered the best solution for my orthopedic issues. He and his staff were very caring and understanding to my needs and concerns.
Chesterfield, VA |
He is an excellent doctor! He repaired my shoulder. After meeting him I felt confident in his abilities. He listened to my complaints, did a thorough investigation of my injury and did a successful surgery to repair my shoulder. He is a terrific surgeon!
in Chesterfield, VA |
Two and a half years ago Dr. Sharma gave me back the gift of an active life style. I tell everyone, " I love my partial knee!" My knee had gotten so bad I was unable to walk without pain. I draped my body over the shopping cart to move around the store. Now I walk without pain. I play tennis, Pickleball and many other activities. Thank you Dr. Sharma for giving me back my active life. I highly recommend you see Dr. Sharma. He knows how to "fix" many different parts of your body.
in Colonial Heights, VA |
Dr. Sharma is the best! I'm a 43 y/o man. Fell hard on my RT shoulder in July 2016 and completely tore both my subscapularis and supraspinatus. After an MRI Dr. Sharma quickly scheduled me for surgery. He performed an arthroscopic repair of both tendons. Everything went smoothly and in 6 weeks I was out of my shoulder sling. It's 7 months post surgery & I feel great. Following Dr. Sharma's post-op advice, I'm well on my way back to full range of motion and full use. Thank you Dr. Sharma!
in Colonial Heights, VA |
Dr. Sharma is extremely knowledgeable; takes the time to explain everything in detail so that you can understand what he will be doing. Truly shows care and concern. He replaced my left knee in 2015 and my right knee in 2016. I had excellent results both times and credit it all to Dr. Sharma. When I had complications not related to the surgery, he came to my hospital room out of concern.

Dr. Sharma repaired a large tear in my rotator cuff, eliminated a large bone spur and reattached a shoulder muscle. The operation was completely successful and I have all faculties of the shoulder returned.
in Hopewell, VA |
He took amazing care of me and made me feel very comfortable.
in Richmond VA |
Dr. Sharma did a fantastic job repairing my shoulder. In less than 6 weeks my range of motion is greater than it has been in years and my pain level is down. I highly recommend this surgeon!

in Prince George, VA |
Dr. Sharma was great about explaining my fracture, detailing the plan of care, and following through. I followed his advice and now, just over 6 weeks post-injury, am healing well. I trust Dr. Sharma and highly recommend his services.
in Prince George, VA |
Dr Sharma did my right knee replacement one year ago today. He is an excellent, knowledgeable surgeon & takes the time to explain everything. He called & checked on me during my recovery and I followed all of his medical advice which ensured a successful recovery. My knee rep!acement surgery was a huge success and I am grateful that it has significantly improved my quality of life. I highly recommend Dr. Sharma!
in Chester, VA |
By far the best doctor I have ever meet. My military career was in jeopardy before I meet Dr. Sharma. He revived my career with his greatness. I will not see another doctor about my shoulder regardless of where I am located. The most amazing physician I have ever encountered.
in Colonial Heights, VA |
Outstanding doctor! I am a fairly active individual and I came to Dr. Sharma after a year of frustrating leg/knee/foot issues. He was able to diagnose and prescribe the needed medical advice. Doctors who are good in their field, professional, caring, and willing to listen to their patients are hard to find and Dr. Sharma definitely possesses all of these qualities.
in Colonial Heights, VA |
Dr. Sharma is a very considerate doctor, He will take the time to answer all your questions.
in South Chesterfield, VA |
I am quite satisfied with Dr. Vivek Sharma, after all is said and done, but initially, I was concerned that we only had phone contact with him, when he decided that Hip Pinning surgery should be performed on my 93 yr. old mother, w/o seeing her in person. Obviously, he had seen the x-rays of broken her hip, but she had also lost a lot of blood from a huge gash on her head when she fell at home. The fact that she had been on Xarelto was important, so he wisely postponed surgery. He listens.
