I waited about 20 minutes before being seen. Dr. Sharma was very genuine and truly cared about my health. I could tell he was genuinely concerned about the damage to my ear. He was very professional and had great bedside manners. What blew me away was that he actually called me later in the day to see how I was feeling as I was clearly very suffering from dizziness in his office. I don't think any doctor has ever followed up with me by calling me to check on me. Looking forward to my follow-up with this terrific doctor and person.

I waited over 30 minutes to see the doctor. When the doctor finally saw me he was basically rushing me out the door. I was barely greeted by the doctor. He took one quick look at my problem, gave me a prescription and sent me off. I felt like my questions weren't answered and like my issue was brushed off as if it was no big deal.

Visit went well.wait time was to be expected I came a bit early.only thing I did not like was the rudeness of the lady in the pink sweater at the front desk.I asked can you scan the doctors note to me AND she said "we don't do that here.we don't scan those " which is OK but the way she said it was flat out rude.I would've address her right there but I was not feeling well.the girl that perform the hearing test I didn't catch her name she was super sweet and nice.Doctor was amazing.other then the front desk girl bad behavior. Good experience??

My appointment was at 10:15, doctor or staff took me 30mins early. The doctor took the time to understand how i felt, and staff at front desk was very respectful and helpful. Most front desk staff seem to be annoyed when asking the same question, but the staff was actually really nice. I would come back... thank you

I had a broken nose injury because of my boxing training. Doctor Sharma was very attentive and helpful, he identified the problem very fast and led me all the way through process of surgery and post surgery recovery, taking time to explain every detail and concern, what I had. After my surgery on Friday he called me Sunday, in his day off, to check how do I feel and gave me some recommendations! I would definitely recommend dr. Sharma to anyone who has related issues.

My first visit with Dr. Sharma was satisfactory, however I wish I had gotten a second opinion before going along with his decision for immediate surgery after he'd assessed my health issue. Post op he wasn't there to give post op instructions or leave the proper post op instructions. So I had to go to his office after a minimally invasive surgery (my emergency contact wanted to speak face to face). He says one thing but goes back and says another. I didnt trust him after I picked up on a few instances where he was unsure, unclear and couldn't provide proper information. His desk staff has lied and provides incorrect information so you'll have to stand your ground if you get the feeling something doesn't sound right and/ or you need info and/or something done. Dr. Sharma is impatient and dosesn't care about the patient, atleast, he didn't care about me. I went to his office not for a follow-up but because I needed documents verfified and signed off for the purpose of submitting to my job. Dr. Sharma was so upset about me being there because his staff didnt let him know I was coming even after I called to ask whether it was a good day/ time to stop by. I know it wasn't a follow up and he wasn't getting paid but not once did he ask how I was doing ( I know these are follow-up questions) or seemed concerned at all, furthermore I didn't get a pleasant hello when we spoke. He was fussing with his desk staff in front of me and was very dismissive when I asked for 2 minutes of his time. At any rate, I wouldn't recommend going here. They are unfriendly and unprofessional. Maybe this comment will change things. It's 12 days post op and not once has his office called to check on me.

The worst doctor office. The doctor work as a street man..When I asked why not prescribed medicine to relieve my wife's pain, I was told (if you do not like the service, go somewhere else). Wowwwwwwwwwwww.... That is a behavior of a very uneducated man.

Bad experience! Would not recommend. Receptionist wouldn't give me first visit rate, if i knew what it was i wouldn't have gone to him and the doctor did nothing but look in my ear. He didn't know what was wrong so he told me to come back the next time my ear hurt. I went to urgent care and they fixed my ear ache! I guess I should have known something was up when i was able to get an appointment same day and there was no one in the waiting room. It was like crickets in there.
