Dr. Raphael Sharon's Ratings
This doctor thinks he knows everything and does not listen to the parents and dismisses their concerns. No referrals as he is the "specialist" in all areas evidently. Finally our family doctor got us referred to a specialist we needed and found out there really was something wrong with our child after numerous pedi visits with no results. Arrogance hurts children! Not impressed at all and Specialist was livid we "waiting" this long to see them as if we had the choice. Happy we are finally get our child some help.
Amazing Dr. He is thoughtful, interested and very knowledgable! I never feel rushed, he asks if up I have questions and answers them all with lots of information. His staff are friendly and accommodating.
Every appointment in the last 6 months iv ended up waiting at least a half hour to an hour after my appointment time. Comes in for a quick 2 minutes and leaves. Last appointment he asked if my child was babbeling lots... like his mother. Not funny you dont know me, this is not the only comment i took offensivley. Always feel rushed like he doesnt have the time of day.
Our 2 kids (6 and 4 years old) have been seeing Dr Sharon since they were born. They adore him, as do we.
They feel very comfortable talking to him and listen to him more than they do to us! we will use his name at home sometimes, if we need them to do things that he discussed in clinic. Remember what Dr Raffi said? And they do it.
I also love that he is not quick to give medications for anything. But when he does, he will explain why it is needed.
In short, love him, and highly recommend him.
My son struggled with pneumonia for the for 8 months of his life. We were referred to Dr. Sharon to help us help our child. He didn't take us or our child's issues seriously. He ordered a series of blood test to make me the mother feel better. When the results cane back. He said quote everything is normal just as I suspected. during that same appointment I asked him to please listen to my son's chest as he's been feverish again and coughing, he literally put the stethoscope on his chest over shirt for 3 seconds and said he sounds great And dismissed us. The following day I ended up in emergency and my boy was admitted to the hospital for 3 days on iv meds for pneumonia again. Livid about how careless he was I was sent to a pulmonary specialist and discovered that the blood work he ran wasn't all normal like he rubbed in our face. I felt like he wasn't interested in or paid attention to our child at all and made us as parents feel stupid for a lack a better term.
My son was born with heart issues which caused us to see many doctors. Dr Sharon followed up with us when others didn't and explained in a way we understood what was going on with our son. Even now we can take him in with the slightest concerns and he listens and helps. Never making us feel crazy or over reacting even when we are.
Truly an honest review here:
Staff - No complaints here
Punctuality - Typical doctor's office. Don't expect to see him exactly at your appointment time. This is the same for every other office I've been to. He is extremely busy, but manages it quite well.
Helpfulness - We were slightly put off by our initial visits. He seemed overly quick with our precious new arrival. His bedside manner was more businesslike than personal. In retrospect, there was nothing wrong with our baby, so he didn't really need to spend a whole lot of time during those initial vists. We have brought our son back several times in his first year (first time parents). In each visit he is patient and understanding and takes quite a bit more time than those initial visits.
Knowledge - This is where he impressed me. If you want a doctor who is going to throw drugs at your child, Dr. Sharon is not the man. This is a good thing. He, thus far, will accurately diagnose his patients and not overreact. He will gladly answer any questions you have, offer advice from his own experience with his kids, not look down on cultural/traditional remedies (unless he feels they are unsafe). If he does not know the answer to something, he will tell you.
Overall, I am very comfortable with this doctor and feel safe with my child in his care.
