I had sclerotherapy done on my leg veins. Dr. Sharma was running late, and when he came in he had what appeared to be blood on his scrubs. The procedure itself was fine, but it left some dark discolorations on my legs that appear to be permanent. I would not recommend him to friends.

This dr does not care about patient satisfaction!He lied to me and misdiagnosed me for 7 months and treated me poorly while he acted like an arrogant jerk.Currently under investigation with medical board.Bad diagnosing skills for a dr with 24 years experience,and does not care when patient is unhappy with lipo results as a direct result of his incompetance.Trying to sue me for a million dollars because I am giving him bad reviews for his substandard care by claiming I am defaming him,Be careful with this guy,arrogance and a god complex.

I had an appt at 9:45 AM. I waited 45 min with 3 other patients for the Dr to show. He was out running errands with wife. He over booked and never showed. The receptionist called Dr on cell to inform him of patients waiting but Dr was too busy. All 3 of us left the office disgusted that a Dr would be that arrogant to think we would wait for him without regard for our time.

This dr misdiagnosed a blatant hernia for 7 months ,calling it swelling and fluid.Put me at medical risk and gave me no patient care.Left me with a bulging bruised hernia and astomach covered in scars and holes.Refuses to admit his mistake and continues to try to cover up his errors by telling fabrications.All supporting evidence is in my chart notes.I had my hernia fixed recently by another surgeon and dr sharma still says my hernia is my opinion only even though he called it a hernia in my chart notes.Please check out a dr thoroughly before you have him work on your body since cosmetic procedures are permanent.I wish I could go back and do things differently.

Ms.M has intentionally omitted certain facts to make this surgeon look bad. Dr. sharma never performs a liposuction procedure without a thorough clinical exam of the area to be worked on.In this case, Ms. M came to Dr. sharma back in Feb 08 for lipo suction of her upper and lower abdomen only. Dr. sharma, after clinical exam of the area, found an umbilical hernia which he repaired being a general surgeon.then Ms.M underwent smartlipo of her abdomen in March 08 without any complications. Ms.M came back in Aug 08 for more lipo suction of her other area while under his constant care and thrilled about the prior results. The area misdiagnosed in her opinion was worked on for touch-up smartlipo (not liposuction) in Sept, 08 with her consent after making sure clinically (this is standard practice after lipo suction). she underwent touch-up smart lipo only at the lower abdoment small area without any complications. In the end, it is her assertion that the area she is referring to is misdiagnosed.
Arizona vein and laser institute is one of the best places around that deal with those ugly veins on the legs. Very attentive, good results. A little bit pricey.
