The Sharp Experience

The Sharp Experience is about making patients feel they are the most important people in the world to me.



I have always had a fascination with how the human body works. I love that my profession allows me to see the faces of my patients when they are better and am honored to be a part in improving their lives. Patient-doctor relationships are the cornerstone of medicine. Each person must be understood and their concerns addressed within the context of their lives. As a physician and surgeon, I become a partner in healing with my patients.

My time outside of the office and operating room is spent focusing on my family with three small children. We enjoy the outdoors, and love to ski and hike together.
