This dr has just been investigated by az med board for the substandard care and gross misdiagnosis of my hernia.He did lipo 3 times over my hernia without ever doing any diagnostic tests when I voiced my concerns about the huge bulge on my c section scar.His disregard for my safety and final results were directly related to his misdiagnosis.I had to go off on my own and find a competant skilled dr to repair his mess.Cosmetic procedures are supposed to make you look and feel better not put you through 7 months of agony and a med board investigation.He is also suing me for 1 million dollars becuase I dare to inform potential patients of my nightmare experience with him.Please research him before deciding to do business with him as he is rude,arrogant and a liar.I have several blatant lies he has told such as stating in his defamation lawsuit that there is no med board investigation of him even thoughn he knew he was.

I have had three smartlipo procedures done by Dr. Kulbhushan Sharma, spending over $7,500, two last year and one this year 2009. Dr. Sharma did excellent work and I have recommended him to numerous freinds of mine. Dr. Sharma was very professional in each procedure and was well versed in the procedure. There were no complications. If the Arizona Medical Board found nothing wrong, it sounds like you are very vindictive and are purposely trying to hurt Dr. Sharma and his reputation. Whenever a patient has a problem with a Doctor, the procedure is to turn him over to the Meical Board and let the medical panel review everything for the final outcome. It sounds like you need to see a Psychologist, as that is where your problem is, IN YOUR HEAD. When you face reality and realize that Dr. Sharma did NOTHING WRONG, as the Medical Review Board, if you checked, FOUND NOTHING. Dr. Sharma has no complaints against him for over 5 years. This can be found over the internet thru the Arizona Medical Board. You should ask God for forgiveness and apologize to Dr. Sharma, and QUIT TRYING TO DAMAGE DR. KULBHUSHAN SHARMA'S REPUTATION, as Dr. Sharma was only doing his excellent job in all three of your procedures.

Are a patient? you sounf like a friend or relative.. no doctor is perfect and I know for a fact mistakes happen, maybe he had a bad procedure? apologize and fix it, dont blame the patient. I had a pediatician for my daughter that had practiced 30 years, he misdiagnosed my daughters cancer at age three as ashtma, he retired than get a medical board review, i know it happens and I have been active in the medical community. I never sued, I thank god she is alive and have moved on.

I checked with the Arizona Medical Board and there are no errors on Dr. Sharma's record. If the board reviewed his records from November 2008 to June of 2009, the board found nothing wrong. I personally called and went on line, there are NO DINGS OR MISTAKES ON DR. SHARMA PART. I am a real life patient of Dr. Sharma and everyone I have recommended and myself have HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH DR. SHARMA OR HIS PROCEDURES OR WORK. EVERYONE HAS BEEN COMPLETELY SATISIFED AND HAVE REFERRED OTHERS TO DR. SHARMA. I have had again, two smart lipo procedures in 2008 and one in March 2009. Extreme happy.EXCELLENT DOCTOR.

Um excuse me katie starr you are very stupid.If you read my review you would see that the medical board HAS found him guilty!!!!He is going before the board august 5th!!why dont you get your facts straight before you open your fat mouth?Just because you had no complications does not mean my case was completly different!He did not do excellent job in my procedures he was incompatant and he misdiagnosed me!I have 4 opinions from other drs and the med board.You are obviously a phony patient because you have sent me a private message on ratemds and you mention my name so that is a hippa violation that dr sharma is discussing me with you so I will be filing another med board complaint.I am not vindictive I simply believe bad drs need to be exposed so patients can know what other patients have gone through.

If you had a good experience then post it..I had a very negative one and you have no right or invitation to blast my review as you were not in the procedure room nor the exam rooms nor privvy to any of my chart records.You are a misinformed,dumb person.I have the dr notes that show my hernia was present during the duration of the procedures and was ignored and misdiagnosed.You do not know me or what happened but you sure think you do.Also I do not care if you called the med board personally ....how can there be any info on him if his date to be disciplined is Aug 5th???You are so dim it is pathetic.You look stupid trying to sing his praises when in reality the medical boards opinion is all that matters and you actually think they found nothing wrong!Go to the public meeting in scottsdale at 8 am get a clue.I will continue to tell every person I come in contact with about my horrible experience as word of mouth is the surest way to get a bad experince out there,and believe me I know a lot of people who will never set foot near his office after hearing what he did.Please stop trying to discredit me as I also am areal patient and what I went through is not open for you to talk about as you were not involved.I know dr sharma has been telling you his story and it is truly fabricated.

Dr sharma was given an advisory letter from THE AZ MED BOARD for doing lipo 3 times over a ventral hernia.Dr sharma lied to me several times saying it was swelling which would go away.He also said doing lipo over a hernia would be very dangerous but in the end he did lipo over my hernia and he thinks that was ok?Katiestarr is a delusional idiot.

This dialogue is AMAZING! The most important thing to know about Dr. Sharma is he is NOT A PLASTIC SURGEON!!!!!! He is a general surgeon who is performing procedures that he has not been appropriately trained to do.

The problem here is education of the consumer looking to have plastic surgery. Patients need to do there homework and choose a REAL plastic surgeon who has completed a full residency (5 years) in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. No the Board of Cosmetic Surgery. In Arizona, any type of physician (dermatologist, family physician, general surgeon, etc) can say they are a cosmetic surgeon, and even perform these procedures. This is very unfortunate for patients. Ask your physician if they can do the procedure at the hospital. If they cant, then they are not appropriately trained/credentialed for the type of procedure.

Dr. Sharma, like many other doctors performing cosmetic procedures is motivated by the financial incentive to do these procedures out of the scope of his training. I have nothing against him personally, but believe that if he wants to become a plastic surgeon, he should return to residency and complete a full fellowship in plastic surgery. Then he would certainly avoid any of this criticism from both patients and colleagues.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!!! LOOK UP YOUR DOC on the American Society of Plastic Surgery Website

Radgirl and Plasticdoc, Thank you to you both. I had been given this doctors name. Not as a recommendation but someone had heard he did certain procedures without general anesthetic.

I will be going the route that plasticdoc suggested, as well as continuing to check doctors out through word of actual patients.

I am glad that I ran across this (although it is early in my homework, it may have saved me a LOT of time and money).

It sounds to me like perhaps Katie is either the Dr, his wife or family member, as katie came across very irritated, as if it was taken personally. Again, thanks for the info, this is one chance I will not be willing to take unless he can show that he has the proper residency and schooling.

Wow! This blog was very informative. These are peoples lives that doctors are messing with and if they have not had the proper training or have the certification to do a procedure then dont do it! peoples lives are being ruined by your desire to make money!...have some consideration and unselfishness!Your not god and u CAN make mistakes so dont take the chance on someones life by doing a procedure your not knowledgable about.

I am so glad I read this. I had been trying to get more info on this doc and wasnt much. I just had consult with him and just didn't feel right. He didn't inform me of the procedure or anything that he thought I might want to know. Just asked what size I wanted and then if I had any questions. . . He even looked to his assistant that was there in office on one questions. I am so glad I found this and I am def NOT going back to him. His assistant even seemed shady. When I asked her about other fees and about blood work, she said not to worry that she could use a 'certain code' so that way my insurance would pay for it as long as I didnt say what it was for and then change it afterwards. I will be sure to go elsewhere.

i had a breast augmentation 6 mons. ago Dr. Sharma did terrible work made one implant pocket way higher than the other. Now i am left with an implant that will not settle into place but every time i go to check-ups he tells me that its normal and to keep massaging from the begining i noticed this and mentioned it to him but he just ignored my comments.... Also i had terrible pain during local anesthesia i don't know if this is normal... I doubt it, part of it is my fault for not doing my homework like i should have so please to all of u who r thinking of going to this Dr. do research first and i would suggest general anesthesia and a true PLASTIC SURGEON!!!

Doc's make mistakes all the time. There not going to tell you. It takes an act of God to get medical boards to reprimand.

Been to Dr. Sharma 5 times since my breast augmentation 8 months ago. I am still in terrible pain my breasts are extremely hard, PAINFUL!!! and look nothing alike. for one is larger than the other and sits much higher my fear is that i might have capsular contracture because of how hard and painful my breasts are but still Dr. Sharma refuses to do any further testing he tells me this is normal and i should wait one full year i have decided to see other drs because i feel completely ignored, all he recommends is massage i think i'm way beyond that.

I wanted to write my comments because I can't say enough wonderful & positive things about my treatment and how professional Dr. Sharma and his fabulous staff is (especially Katrina who has been with me every step of the way to answer questions and schedule appointments).

They are the most supportive, caring and concerned group of people at a doctor's office that I have had the pleasure to experience.

Dr. Sharma is excellent, accommodating and is very patient and always takes the time with each of his patients to make them feel comfortable and truly cares about their well-being!

I would highly recommend Dr. Sharma and the Arizona Vein and Laser Institute to everyone!!!!

You sound like someone that works there. Have you not read all the comments of these people that have had medical issues. It's great that people were nice and scheduled your appointment correctly, how was your procedure?
