Dr. Sharma is dedicated to making sure her patients get the best care possible. She has been there for our daughter since day one and has been really kind and good at getting back to us in a timely manner - which as first time parents is of the utmost importance. I would recommend anyone who has children to see Dr. Sharma. Even the nurses at her office are lifesavers - Veronica is awesome!

My daughter is a new patient and we were greeted right away. Even though we initially had problems with our new insurance card they were professional, patient and very helpful!

While Dr. Sharma seemed to be knowledgeable, her medical assistant seemed extremely inexperienced. He allowed fluid from the shots to dribble everywhere, couldn't take accurate measurements for height and head circumference, and took more than 15 minutes just to give me the percentiles.
