Verified Patient Reviews
Best pain relief I have had after several weeks of pursuing other therapies (massage, ART, PT, anti-inflammatories.) After an hour of acupuncture, I finally had a good night's sleep for the first time in a month, and the muscle seems to have relaxed completely. Highly recommend for sports and other musculoskeletal injuries.
Pleased with results and the way I was treated.
Sharon is great! I had not been for several years, and I was happy to return!
Outstanding, first time with Accupincture, lingering back/hip problem. Really works.
Sharon both asked and answered a lot of questions. She offered making my next visit so as to not be caught in rush hour traffic. She laid out her plan of treatment for the next three weeks. When I surprised her with a couple aches and pains I forgot to put down on the application, she immediately supplemented her approach to accommodate those maladies. Very impressed.
Sharon Sherman is extremely knowledgeable in her field and always remedies any ailments I put in front of her. Sharon is an excellent acupuncturist.
When you visit Sharon, expect to be taken care of by a knowledgeable and compassionate professional.
I have a few things that she is addressing. Some were more straightforward than others. She is experienced and competent. And kind.
As a longterm client, Sharon has always been a timely, thorough, caring, professional with me - all ways having the correct answers and providing appropriate treatments.
Wonderful experience !
Fantastic and addressed my needs immediately
The visit went real well Sharon hit a lot if the points that are my tight spots . I just hope that the relief sustains.
Sharon is great at her craft. I recommend her all the time.
As a patient od ocer a decade, Sharon is a Godess among acupuncture professionals.
Sharon listens carefully and elicits a thorough history. She is expertly trained and very experienced. Her manner is caring and reassuring, her hands steady and gentle, and the results are amazing. It's a bonus that Sharon has a great sense of humor too especially when you are having needles driven into your body! I cannot say enough good things.
I really like Sharon. She is thorough and professional. She takes her time to understand what is going on, figure out the best course of treatment and then discusses it with you. She is very open to any questions you may have and makes you feel very comfortable. I highly recommend her.
Sharon was professional but not at all stuffy. She asked me pertinent questions and checked on me a few times throughout the treatment. I felt very comfortable and like I was in competent hands. I felt a lot of relief in my knee and thigh...2 areas Sharon targeted for treatment.
What an amazing experience! Sharon is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, warm and funny. I walked in to her office wound up like a 2 day clock ready to explode and left in full serenity. Cant wait to get back next week!
Two people recommended Sharon to me. Now I will sing her praises to everyone I care about. She knows her craft,, she is incredibly likable, and incredibly compassionate. I highly recommend her.
Very professional but also friendly practitioner.
I was very pleased with her approach to my issues.
Sharon was highly professional and sensitive to my needs. I am a skeptic, so whether these treatments will actually requires more time, but that has nothing to do with Sharon herself. She created a comfortable environment and is a good practitioner.
Sharon is great!
I Love Sharon, still! Almost two years of going to her about once every few months. She is wonderful.
Wonderful practitioner. Very warm and great to talk to as well.
Super, thank you so much!!!
I was a little nervous in the beginning being as though this was my first time trying acupuncture, but Dr. Sharon was very pleasant and made me feel very comfortable right away. I was informed about things that I was not aware of and believe that the information I was given is very beneficial. I feel like this is what I've been missing for years with dealing with pain and not knowing why and she has answered that. I am very excited about my next appointment!!! Thanks to recent reviews I decided to go with Dr. Sharon.
Exceptional practitioner and healer.
Sharon was great, personable, knowledgeable, courteous, and did a great job with my back pain!
Treatment was very good and ex;lanagtkion was excellent.
Sharon is an complete professional. I have metastatic breast cancer and Graves disease. She will research the literature to find out everything she can about your problems so that she will provide you with the best care. She is extremely knowledgeable about the role that Chinese medicine and acupuncture can play along with traditional allopathic or osteopathic medicine. She is a most compassionate, caring and competent health care provider.
She has helped me in the past with shoulder issues, and helped once again. Highly recommended!
Knowledgible, professional and caring.
I have been to many TCM practitioners, and Sharon is among the best!
Sharon is a gifted acupuncturist. She takes the time to listen to me before treatment and I always leave feeling better.
Sharon is extremely attentive. She has resolved many of my issues and sometimes I call her the lazy man's physical therapist because I am sure she has saved me from hours of PT. I recently came in with one issue that stumped her and she took the time to write up a case study about it and post it to a group of her peers to investigate the right approach. I appreciate that she took the time and interest to really seek out the best treatment for me.
Sharon is such a kind, caring and competent clinician. She takes time to talk to the patient and design her treatment based on the patient's specific needs. She responds quickly to any questions that I email her and uses sound evidence based literature and studies to support her decision about my treatment. I always feel great when I leave her office. She is wonderful.
Great expirience!!! Thank you so much for your knowledges!!!
Thank you so much, I feel better.
Second visit and the results are great. would highly recommend Sharon to anyone with muscular issues!
Sharon made me at ease immediately, questioned the issues that I was concerned about and then thoroughly explained what the treatment she would provide. The session was excellent and I left with relief from the discomfort - that has lasted over the next 24 hour period. There was no pain to the procedure and I have scheduled a follow-up session.
Extremely pleased. I felt results right away.
I hobbled in with back pain and muscle spasms and walked out feeling like a new man! Sharon can work wonders with acupuncture. And she can teach most traditional western doctors a thing or two about communication and bedside manners. I highly recommend Sharon. The next time you're about to make an appointment with your GP/FP don't. Give Sharon a try, you won't be disappointed.
She was very skilled and knowledgeable about her practice and about Chinese medicine. I felt immediate relief from the issues I came in for.
Sharon made me feel completely at ease from the beginning to the end of my treatment. I feel confident she will bring my body back to wellness. Definitely recommend!
Sharon is wonderful and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an acupuncturist.
Great bedside manner Highly skilled and knowledgeable I feel so much better after treatment
I had a great experience here and would highly recommend Sharon!
Besides addressing my aches and pains Sharon has treated my menopausal symptoms with herbal supplements. No more hot flashes, night sweats, etc. Awesome!
Thorough and thoughtful, potential for healing is great! I'm hopeful that I'll be back in balance soon.
I was very impressed. The office was lovely. There is a very calm, peaceful aura in the office. Ms. Sherman was extremely professional. She was easy to talk to and she listened to my concerns. She spent a lot of time going over my records to see how she could help me. I have Stage IV metastatic beast cancer to bone and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking adjunctive therapy to help manage some of the side effects of the traditional chemotherapy.
Sharon is a consummate professional and a highly skilled practitioner. She is gracious and down-to-earth in her manner and I have recommended her services to others in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
Sharon is an exceptional accupuncturist. My family has been her patient for many years. She is wonderful at diagnosis, treatment and friendly helpful counseling. We love her and are so thankful to have her on our treatment team.
Ms. Sherman provides effective and professional acupuncture treatment. Her office is clean, warm, comforting and inviting. I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone for any number of issues. I am now a firm believer in the power of acupuncture.
It was a great experience, especially since it was my first time having acupuncture. The office is so inviting and the results were great.
knowlegeable practioner, good diagnostician, peaceful environment, caring and thorough
Loved Sharon - she was thoughtful & informative - intuitive & sensitive - she made good suggestions & the accupuncture treatment was amazing !
Sharon is as delightful as all the other 5 star reviews say. Her office is warm, peaceful and inviting. Having struggles with lower back pain for years, I am amazed at the relief I'm feeling after the first session. She was extremely helpful in answering my questions and after hearing what ailed me said, "anything else on your wish list?" What a great way to cast a vision for wholeness and health. She took a genuine interest in who I am and was open about her own life establishing a great repoire right off the bat. Wish there were more like her in the medical profession.
Very helpful, as always. She performed a major miracle on my first visit -- it's hard to top that. I trust her to give me sound health care advice and treatment.
She was very knowledgeable. I felt better even after the first appointment.
exceptional as usual
My visit with Sharon Sherman was great. I believe she connected with me and understood my concerns. Her questions were spot on. The acupuncture treatment (my first) was comfortable (actually, it was relaxing). A few hours after the visit, I realized that I felt better than I have felt in months.
The session was outstanding, as always!
Sharon is a true expert in her field. I've been seeing her for 2 years and she has helped to bring me back from a back injury as well as other bumps and bruises that I've managed to sustain as a result of a pretty active lifestyle. She's the perfect blend of in depth medical knowledge and eastern philosophy.
I was very satisfied with Sharon Sherman, and will definitely go back again, as well as recommend her to others.
Outstanding as always!
I enjoy my visits with Sharon, Very relaxing atmosphere
Visit was successful! Sharon listens to what my issues are, probes for additional information, assesses the problem areas quickly and targets the appropriate muscles to relieve the pain. Her warm and friendly demeanor made my experience even better. I will recommend her to others.
It was relaxing!!!
Sharon was attentive and understanding.
