Dr. Sharma is a very sweet gentle man who is easy to talk to. He was very thorough and professional in dealing with me and my issues. I would definitely recommend him plus he does take Medicare which very few if any phyciatrists in this area accept. He helped me and I look forward to my next visit which is in one week and know he will listen to me and take into account my feelings and clinical issues.

Overall Good Doctor

He's a wonderful doctor who i recently went to see, and you can tell that he really truly cares about his patients. I honestly didn't even wait a full 5 minutes, more like 2 or 3. The strange thing is that he doesn't actually have a staff, he and his wife run everything. This is the best psychiatrist in the area!
