He told me he reviewed my file 2 weeks prior to my visit; the results of my nuclear test were unreliable. He didn't review anything with me in my file. Talked more to his resident than me. Contradicted 3 other doctors' diagnoses. 10. No confidence.

Dr. Sharp is always very good at his job, answers questions and explains things.
Patient | August 21, 2017

Dr. Sharp is in and out like a tornado, no time for talking or questions.
Patient | August 4, 2017

Intern accompanying dr. did not make a correct diagnosis. Said I did not have the problem I came in for. Dr. corrected him.
Patient | August 2, 2017

I am medically trained & had complete faith in this surgeon.
Patient | April 25, 2017

Went to get test done - dr. only had old test of mine. Gave no time for me to tell him what I wanted.

Dr. Sharp suggest using ice packs & Aldere for breast pain. That was a great alternative to prescription pain meds - and it worked fine.
Patient | February 7, 2017

Dr. Sharp was in & out very fast. He did speak to me & said a few words - then he was off rushing to the next patient. In total about 30 seconds -> 1 min. max.
Patient | January 9, 2017

Dr. Sharp is direct, no-nonsense I'm OK with that. He's a specialist & only deals w/breasts. Some of my friends want compassion & aw... honey, etc. #6. No meds.

Provider was very good and helpful explaining what he was talking about.
Patient | October 5, 2016

I wish I got a better explanation of what I could do and not do after sugery. The general no lifting, pushing, pulling was not clear. I would have preferred him say no cleaning for 4 weeks making it specific to my life.
Patient | September 6, 2016

Patient | September 3, 2016
