    I love Dr Sharp, I wish we had more OBGYNs who would take the time to look at samples under the microscope. It should be a standard practice in all clinics. Dr Sharp is very compassionate and caring to his patients

    I waited 30 minutes before seeing Dr. Sharp. Dr. Sharp had me do a month long pain log and didnt even address it. He also recommended treatments that Ive already had. The audio for this virtual appointment was never good. We had to change to a phone call in the middle of my appointment. I was given a new medication and told to follow up in a month. I called to schedule the follow up and they dont have anything for two months.
