Specialties

Dr. Sandeep B Sharma has the following 3 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

The BEST doctor does not work for UPMC or Highmark

This is by far the best experience I have had with a doctor for a procedure. My wife and I are always surprised that Dr. Sharma is not part of a hospital. That may be why the care he and his staff provide is so good. Everyone is pleasant and happy to be working there. Dr. Sharma is always courteous and explains everything even though we have been to see him more than a few times now. The turkey sandwiches are the best in town too.

Not going to a hospital again. Outpatient is BEST!

Having my procedure performed as an outpatient at the Vascular Center was tons better than having it done at the hospital. Another patient scared me when he told me about the experience he had having his catheter removed at the hospital. I was very nervous to have the procedure performed. The staff at the center put me at ease. Dr. Sharma assured me he was there to help me and not torture me. He was right. My catheter was removed with minimal discomfort. Nothing like what the other patient had told me. DON'T GO TO A HOSPITAL!! Tell you docotr to have the procedure performed at Dr. Sharma's office.

Five Stars

I had a great experience with Dr. Sharma whom I have been seeing for the last 3 years. He has prolonged the use of my fistula. I have nothing but positive things to say.

My Best Interest

I was referred to the access center to see Dr. Sharma for problems with my fistula. The ride to the center was adequate and I liked it because I don't know the area at all being from outside Pittsburgh. We arrived early for my appointment, My wife rode along with me. The waiting room was not filled with patients waiting and it was clean. After about 20 minutes from checking in I was taken back to meet the doc. The changing room was clean and so was the gown I was told to put on. The nurse gave me a blanket as it was on the cold side. Dr. Sharma came over to speak to me after a few minutes. He introduced himself and sat down next to me. He explained to me why my fistula may not be working. He explained it like it was a plumbing problem which made sense to me and my wife. When I went back to the operating area, the nurses made me feel very comfortable as they prepared me for the operation. I do not remember much after that because of the medicine they gave me. I am ok with that. Dr. Sharma told me afterwards that I needed to go back to see my surgeon to really fix my fistula. He gave me the names of Pittsburgh surgeons to see if I did not want to go back to see the surgeon who made my fistula in the begining. I did go back to my surgeon who did fix my fistula and it is now working. I appreciated Dr. Sharma's help when no one else was able to give me any answers about why my fisutla would not work. He was honest and seemed to genuinely care.
