Sharon is extremely knowledgable, patient and kind. She is really interested in how her patients feel and makes sure to take our personal preferences into her planning. I don't feel like a number at her office!

Everyone is super friendly. I have been to so many other doctors who just kept prescribing more and more pills. She took the time to really understand my problem and now I don't have any more problems. Great choice and I'm so relieved I found her!
