Specialties

Dr. Vandana D Sharma has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

Very knowledgable Doctor. Up to date on latest meds, careful to consider all side effects when prescribing. Based upon my wife's comments (she's a nurse), the doc modified her RX order. Overall, a good meeting with the Doc-

Dr. Sharma is the best in her field. She never rushes a appt. Also she is very caring, and respectful of her patients feelings. I personally feel lucky to have found such a great doctor. The only thing I would change is the wait time to see her, but she is worth the wait. Her staff is also very nice.

Dr. Sharma is a great rheumatologist and I would highly recommend her. The staff are all courteous and helpful. The office is clean and organized.She never rushes your visit and takes time to see how you've been doing. She is kind and caring and always listens to you. She takes time to answer any questions you have.The only downside is the wait time. It can take a long time to get into the room and then you still have to wait a little while for the doctor. It can be frustrating but seeing Dr. Sharma is worth the wait.
