I confirm what other reviewers have already said, that Dr Sharma, is not only one of the best in his field, but also one of the best Doctors of any field I have met. No rush by the staff or Doctor, as they listen closely to my issues, and spend all the time I need explaining my options. I have never been rushed in any way in the office. I highly recommend Dr Sharma and his staff, for their genuine concern for my health, and their highly efficient practice. Thank You!

I am writing for my parents who are older and both patients of Dr. Anil Sharma for several years. My dad has issues with his back and my mom has issues with her neck. We have tried numerous doctors and countless medications and procedures but none have given them any relief until they met Dr. Sharma. Dr. Sharma has got to be one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate doctors that I have ever met. My Parents and I have recommended Dr Sharma to numerous friends and family.

I have been very impressed with Dr. Sharma. I was a nurse for 35 years and have worked with many doctors, some good and some bad. Dr. Sharma is great. He is caring and attentive to your needs as a patient. He is very smart and professional.

I have been seeing Dr. Sharma for over 5 years. My brother referred me to him. I took his advice and went to see Dr. Sharma, even though he was almost 50 miles away. His staff was excellent. Dr. Sharma spend time with me to explain my condition in detail and showed me my problem on the MRI. After 2 injections, I was pain free and was able to do all my activities. The relief lasted for 3 years and when the pain came back, I saw a doctor locally and that was a huge mistake and I got an injection, which actually increased my pain. I went back to Dr. Sharma and he did the procedure correctly and I am pain free. I would highly recommend him.
