I was referred to Mr Sharma after I found a lump in my abdomen. He was kind and efficient and I quickly got the scans I needed to confirm a diagnosis of bowel cancer. Mr Sharma explained the nature and location of the cancer, the details and risks of the operation and was attentive and compassionate in answering any questions I had. Within minutes of leaving the consultation room I had a phone call with an operation date which was only two weeks later - my cancer was large and as I understand it quite advanced, Mr Sharma ensured it was addressed quickly. It appears he works well with other professionals as throughout my care he referred to discussions he'd had with the multi-disciplinary team and how those discussions had informed decision making around my care. After my operation Mr Sharma phoned my spouse himself to summarise how the op had gone and visited me himself that afternoon. Whilst I was an inpatient he checked in regularly with me. There were some issues around pain management and Mr Sharma listened to me and ensured these were addressed. I could not have wished for a better experience of a surgeon and I am very grateful to him and his team for their expertise and their care. Many, many thanks Mr Sharma. UHSM, you would do well to keep him.
Mr Sharma removed my gallbladder at Spire. He explained the procedure in detail, and the possible pitfalls of the operation. He listened carefully to what I had to say and treated every question seriously, and explained carefully what possible effect they would have on the result of the operation. On the day of the operation he was reassuring an considerate, as were all the staff at Spire. After the operation he visited me to confirm it was successful. At the post operation follow up he again listened and answered my questions. At all times he was attentive and interacted well with me. The surgery was, as far as I can tell carried out skillfully. After only a couple of days I was feeling almost totally recovered.
Dr Sharma was efficient , no nonsense, gave all of the facts and ensured I was completely aware of the procedure I was having - This is what medical practitioners are supposed to be like.
Excellent consultant, I was very impressed with Mr Sharma a very charming professional doctor. He goes to great lengths to ask you have you got any questions, I personally should have asked more questions on post-op recovery procedures, I think I thought there would be no after effects but you do need two or three weeks to allow your body to recover. He said if I had any issues after my post-op examination to contact him again, I was very impressed, thank you, Mr Sharma.
