Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Sharma was AWESOME! Seriously...I am very thankful for doctors like him. I look forward to going back!
Very professional, friendly, and efficient. I was in and out in under 30 minutes.
Visit was great. Dr. Sharma is knowledgeable , friendly, and professional.
Awful dr ??
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.
He was great. A grounded, kind man who seemed to get to the root of my problem quickly. Get good directions -- mine were not great and i was late. Staff was very nice about it. I've got a follow up scheduled for next month. ??
Excellent and competent doc
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.
Dr. Sharma is a good listener and takes your concerns seriously. He came up right away with a solution to my problem. I would recommend him!
The whole staff were wonderful
I had a very enjoyable experience at Dr. Gopesh's office. I had water trapped in my ears for over a week and we was able to not only get it out but clean my ears very well! I left his office very satisfied with my visit. Definitely would recommend!
Wonderful, warm doctor and kind staff!
He was kind and gentle with a humorous side.
Dr. Sharma was so friendly and really listened to what my issues had been with my nose/breathing problems. He examined my nose, immediately diagnosed the problem, and gave me validation of the symptoms I'd been experiencing. While using the endoscope, he made sure I could see the camera view on his computer screen and explained everything as he went along, also pointing out interesting stuff like where the opening to the ear passage was. We made a plan for me to get an x-ray and come back to go over it and schedule a septoplasty then. He answered all of my questions about the procedure and assured me it wouldn't be too bad, telling me how he'd had the surgery himself. Ended the appointment by saying I had a very pretty nose! Lol. I got the appointment on a day's notice and was seen right on time. Based on my first experience with Dr. Sharma, I trust him to do my surgery. Would definitely recommend.
He is such a smart doctor, he summarized my health issue within a one visit and recommended the best way of treatment.
I went in with a specific concern and it was taken care of. What more can you ask?
I had a great initial visit as well as follow up. Surgery was recommended and we scheduled it. The staff did not obtain proper authorization and surgery has been delayed. I have been in contact with my insurance company and told this is definitely a fault of office staff and not the insurance company. They went over steps the office needed to do and I relayed those steps to the office and still nothing. It is rough when you are dealing with the medical issue and feel horrible and the office is doing nothing to help relieve the issue.
Horrible bedside manner, completely paternalistic and insisted on a certain treatment route without discussing my options with me! In hindsight, this was a nightmare! AVOID IF AT ALL POSSIBLE!
Dr. Sharma checked out an ear problem for me. He was quick, thorough and professional. In my case, the issue was minor and would run its course in a week or so. Dr. Sharma recommended that we let mother nature do her thing. I appreciate a doctor who tells it like it is and does not over prescribe intervention.
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.
I have been suffering with an issue for many years. I have seen many doctor's in the past, so I can't believe I was actually taken seriously and listened to, and that I was prescribed medication that actually worked! I highly recommend Dr. Sharma. He knows what he is doing and is a competent Dr. I am so thankful that I found Dr. Sharma and am finally being treated for my ailment.
Dr. Sharma was awesome. VERY thorough, kind, and had a good sense of humor. No complaints.
He gave me an appointment on short notice. I didn't mind the wait. Nice support staff as well.
I was very impressed with the treatment I received. I will definitely see him again when I need to.
My visit with Dr. Sharma was as usual highly professional. He is very helpful, understanding and kind.
I had the BEST visit with Dr. Sharma! I would give six stars if I could! He was so attentive and so committed to helping me figure out what has been going on with my ears. I saw a different ENT multiple times for a month and Dr. Sharma was able to fix my problem in one visit. So grateful!!!
I had very good and also professional interaction with the doctor. I was really surprised that by looking at my pulse and my throat he was able to lot of my medical condition and made some suggestions in terms of how I should take care of health. He did not any blood tests to infer but his medical diagnosis was on the button. Very much impressed and I strongly recommend him for the others.
Dr.Gopesh sharma was very professional, jovial, patient and well experienced. He handled with utmost care and very knowledgeable. He spent lot of time to hear all the things that i said and given very good consultation.
Went to see the doctor for a hearing issue and was prescribed stomach acid reflux medicine. Called his office 3 times requesting a telephone call back from Dr Sharma in order to find out about this mistake and he either is not getting the messages or he just doesn't care
Dr. Sharma was professional however his style is a lot more gruff than i would like. when he told me my issue he didn't really give me any insight on what i could do in order to improve my situation besides quit. I felt like I was talking to a grandparent who was like well if you won't listen to me I can't really help, even though he didn't give much feedback. He was gentle in cleaning out my ears.
I felt as though I was in great, professional hands.
Great doctor and very friendly
I would describe Dr. Sharma as a mom and pop type of doctor who lacks modern knowledge and technique to assess and treat medical conditions. I wouldn't consider him an expert in his field when compared to other doctors.
I had a simple ear cleaning but he was fast and thorough. No problems at all. His demeanor was professional but not overly friendly, which is ok for the short time I was there. I would go back if I have a problem. No reason not to.
He was just perfect so nice and patient, his staff also everyone was just very kind.
I'm not sure where all the good reviews came from, but my experience wasn't the best. He seemed knowledgeable and I was seen quickly, but the actual visit just did not sit well. Once in the room, a medical assistant had me fill out a "Sinunitis" symptoms form where most did not apply (I was there for nosebleeds, not sinunitis) so that was weird. Then, when the doctor came in, I explained my re-occurring nosebleed history and he immediately put lidocaine in my nostrils to numb them and said to sit tight for 5 minutes. When he came back, he abruptly asked me to put my phone away (I was in the process of doing just that, but that was rude), and got out nitrate sticks and walked over. I had to ask him what was being done as NOTHING had even been discussed yet- he hadn't even looked into my nose to know which vessels to cauterize and which method (nitrate/electric) was necessary! (I've had both done before. ) When he took the cotton out, looked, and realized I needed electrical cauterization and NOT nitrate, he proceeded. After, he told me to use saline drops/ointment for a week, to come back if I had another nosebleed and I was good to go. I just didn't appreciate the lack of communication on options, and him just going for it without explanation. Hopefully this cauterization fixed the issue and I won't be be back.
He was very professional and quick.
I made an appointment and had to ask when I was going to be seen after 20 minutes of waiting. Seemed a little disorganized but they did finally see me after I asked.
Very outstanding!!! We we're very satisfied with Dr. Gopesh Sharma!!!
Brushed me off- waited 40 minutes for him to examine me for 2 minutes and just hand me a prescription without giving me a throat culture or any testing
Dr. Sharma gave me his undecided attention while I visited with him. I am extremely pleased with the highly focused attention I received.
I have seen many ENT doctors and Dr. Sharma is by far the best!
My needs weren't met. I felt like it was a waste of time.
Dr Gopesh Sharma was very experienced in ENT diseases. He's also very warm and compassionate. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful. I'm glad I came to see Dr Gopesh Sharma! I'll have more treatments and follow-ups with him.
nice was treated fast and doctor was funny
Outstanding. I will warmly recommend him (while hoping I never have to visit him again.)
Extremely long wait. Arrived 10 minutes before scheduled appointment and wasn't seen for over an hour. Doctor made assumptions instead of asking questions. Felt rushed, despite being highly inconvenienced by my wait. Doctor didn't even apologize. Won't be returning.
Excellent, will be going back.
Professional and helpful!
I am from NC visiting my daughter & thought my ear drum ruptured. He was very nice man & I wish I could take him back to NC with me to be my Doctor there. Very knowledgeable man and could understand him well. He even called me later that evening after my appointment to check on me. In which I thought was very nice of him to do!!!
very good & expert
Never again. It's like an appointment with an irritated old man. Doesn't listen. Doesn't care.
Over all it was great experience, they were helpful & nice Dr. Sharma is very nice and experienced, an It was far from home but I won't hesitate to visit him if I need any Ear, Mouth and throat problems.
He is a good Doc and I like him
Worst ever. Doesn't have any patience or skill to deal with kids. I understand that my daughter was not cooperative but they didn't try to help and was more preoccupied about her and her brother putting their feet on his chairs. At least he could have offer some advice to help with her nosebleeds instead he quickly decided that he was going to put her asleep to fix her nosebleed. He didn't explain what procedure he intended to perform and urge us to go and book an appointment for that. I could have asked but I wasn't comfortable with his manners and knew that I won't let him perform anything on my daughter. I was eager to leave his office as quickly as possible. He was behaving more like a grumpy grandpa than a doctor. Just a waste of time and money
I liked his listing and talking he is very patient and helpful, he is a good advisor for those who needs help,
Dr sharma is excellent service doctor. I surely recommend going to him for ENT issues.
Dr. Dharma was pleasant, thorough and kind.
Excellent doctor! It is the second time I am using him. Treated my ear and throat infection.
He was easy to talk to and took care of my problem quickly and I left the office feeling much better than when I entered. As he said in a doy or two the pain would be gone and my hearing would return to normal. Excellent care
Dr. Sharma is very friendly and knowledgeable. I paid two visits to his office for some ear trouble and my condition was cleared within the time frame he provided! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs an ENT.
The medical assistant entered my medical history into the digital system as I watched. She made mutiple errors, for example entering that I have no allergies when I have several. When I informed her if the errors, she replied that she makes errors "all the time" and that the doctor would fx them for her later and it didn't matter that the information was wrong!!!! That is the most insane thing I've heard at a medical office. The doctor apologized when I told him and said she was the sister of his regular assistant who is on maternity leave. He called the assistant in and she again said mistakes are not important. The doctor was fine (not great but fine) but obviously being safe and accurate is not a priority. I am going to another doctor for second opinion- my confidence is shaken by the unprofessional staff
He was extremely nice and explained everything thoroughly!
Very good. Will go back if I ever need an E N T doc again.
Professional and prompt.
Short visit - just went to obtain an ear cleaning. Dr. Sharma was quick and attentive to my needs but was a little gruff around the edges and could have been gentler during the cleaning process.
Dr. Sharma was terrific! Very kind and personable and completely solutions oriented to get me in and out in minutes!
Excellent!Dr.Gopesh Sharma has lot of knowledge about his professionalism as Ent specialist.He took his time,to diagnos my problem,which was not easy,for the last two doctors,i visited.i am very thankfull to him.
Great doctor, really knows his stuff!
Thank you so much Dr. Sharma. My right ear is much better and I can hear now. You are the best!
Had a great personality and sense of humor! Took care of my needs and concerns!
Dr Sharma was good. Listen to all our issues. Given good advise to get rid of problem without any surgery or medications. Receptionist phone call was little rash when we were little late to clinic. Except that everthing was good.
Fully explains everything. Very pleasant experience.
I had a great experience from the checkin, appt to the checkout. Dr. Sharma actually listened to what I wanted/needed to say and gave me good feedback, I will be back! :) thank you so much!
He is well knowledged and he cure the problem in one visit. Excellent doctor and need his service to the society
Dr. Sharma was very professional, very understanding and kind! He figured out my problem right away. And I left his office feeling much better. Would highly recommend him to anybody!
I really enjoyed my visit Dr Sharma took a lot of time to explain everything to me and I am feeling much better. The zocdocs app made making the apt easy. A+ all the way around.
Such a professional and friendly physician in a time of great need. Many thanks.
Friendly doctors asked for few symptoms and spent sometime to analyze the root of the problem and suggested medication. All in all a pleasant experience.
Straightforward and helpful. Very explanatory about the diagnosis on the potential health issue.
Very professional! highly recommended.
Dr. Sharma and his assistant were excellent! He was informative and inquisitive. He took his time to seek information in pursuit of a resolution to my medical issue. He did not rush and made me feel comfortable. His receptionist was very friendly and helpful.
Dr. Sharma was able to relieve my hearing issues by cleaning out my ears. Quick and simple! Definitely recommend him
VERY INFORMATIVE AND ATTENTIVE TO MY PROBLEM
Just had my first visit and was able to book the same day for a sudden ear and sinus issue. The staff was very nice and quick to respond and answer questions. Dr Sharma was really friendly and listened to me explain all my issues. Was a short and sweet visit but I'll come back whenever I require ENT services. Thank you!
An attentive physician...good listener who actually took time to talk with the patient ! We will be following up with him very soon.
Professional, knowledgable, and appears to really care about you.
Very informative and he's overly knowledgeable.
Very professonal, knowledgeable and accomadating
Dr. Sharma is running a business by quickly turning around patients. He could not diagnose the issue and spent less than 5 minutes with me. I would not recommend him.
Dr. Sharma talked to me like a person instead of just a patient. He explained what he was doing and why. He even gave me directions to the nearest CVS by drawing me a map.
A total waste of time. Not helpful at all. :-(
Dr Sharma was excellent with my young son. Great with kids even though he doesn't specialize in them. Thorough and kind manner
Dr. Sharma was very thorough. I will be going back for a follow up visit.
He is good doctor, very caring and professional, very knowledgeable and friendly.
Dr. Sharma was very personable and professional during my appointment. He was able to quickly diagnose my issue and provide appropriate treatment. I highly recommend him and would definitely go to his office again.
Mr Sharma is appears to be a good man with lots of experence. Two factors I require in any doctor I am to trust.
I did not care for the rushed manner, nor the doctor's rush to diagnosis without giving me a full exam. When I did go back for a follow up, I was made to wait almost 45mns before I was seen, and I was the only patient in the waiting room.
Very impressed, knows his stuff and is very professional, easy to talk to
Very nice Dr, just not very helpful with the problem and concern I had.
When I got there they told me that they didn't accept our insurance but they still seen me and made another appointment for my son.
Very helpful, helped me with impacted ear wax that urgentcare couldn't resolve after hours of trying
answered my concerns. did not felt he was in a rush. and I was seen on time
