Love *Dr. Sharma!
Guthrie Patient: August 2019
Dr Sharma didn't listen to anything I said. I told him I had been to pt, exercise, been to a chiropractor, etc and his recommendations after my visit were to try pt, exercise, go to a chiropractor. I said to him 'I just told you I've already done all that' and he said I could take Tylenol too. since I didn't get a referral, I looked up providers on my own and found a dr James Wagner who's interests were power lifting and strength training. I emailed dr Sharma on the portal to ask if he was familiar with dr Wagner and if he thought he may be able to help me. He gave me a referral and a day or two before my appointment dr Wagner's office called and said they weren't sure why I would be referred to them, they only deal with hands. so again, dr Sharma didn't care enough to see who dr Wagner was or what field he works in. just sends a referral without a thought. wasting everyone's time.

Good
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
I was due for a PAP exam and he never even mentioned this. If he didn't want to do it, he should have said so and recommended that I schedule with someone else. I am dealing with a back issue and he never even examined me and where the back pain was coming from. He just said it was time for physical therapy. When I asked him how he knew where the problem was coming from, he said because I didn't mention other symptoms. I wasn't given the opportunity to mention other symptoms.

Guthrie Patient: August 2018
Caregiver was excellent, would have liked more information on memory clinic.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
Always in a hurry to finish.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
I felt he was rude in not removing his hat during my visit. Gentlemen are not supposed to wear hats inside. Therefore, I would never recommend him. I have been told he's been allowed to do this for several years, so the clinic is as guilty as he is. shame on you.
