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 aprescription 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 meAND 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 whenasking 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 toexplain 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 opinstructions 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 sohe 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.

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 theendoscope, 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.

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 toldthis 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.

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 doher thing. I appreciate a doctor who tells it like it is and does not over prescribe intervention.

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 highlyrecommend 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 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 besidesquit. 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.
