Dr. Sharma is amazing! She was prompt in seeing me, answered all of my endless questions without being too technical, and was very calming during a not-very-pleasant procedure.

Although she was pleasant enough and seemed knowledgable, the appointment was rushed and I didn't feel my problem was given the attention it deserved. She basically did a five minute exam then referred me to a PT and X-ray. So overall probably only worth the co-pay for the referrals.
