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. ??

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 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.

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 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 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.

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.
