Dr. Rani Sharma is great -- very knowledgeable and thoughtful.

June 5, 2020 8:29 AM

Thoughtful & caring physician who listens & provides peace of mind.

April 6, 2020 1:22 PM

Dr Sharma & her staff are excellent - always attentive , helpful, respectful, and positive

March 29, 2020 7:15 AM

I felt she was responsive to all questions and concerns I brought up.

March 24, 2020 9:16 AM

Dr. Sharma is very caring about my health. I have not been sick in the past 6 years. At the end of my yearly wellness visit I wish her good health also and look forward to seeing again next year. I am a 5 year breast cancer survivor who is positive about life and my trust in God.

March 19, 2020 7:39 AM

Dr. Sharma is an excellent doctor.

March 19, 2020 7:39 AM

The process of calling the dr.'s office is a nightmare - The people who answer the phone are either poorly trained or incompetent. It's the part I dread most. I want to talk to my doctor's office not a "CALL CENTER!"

March 17, 2020 12:02 PM

I was in a great deal of pain in my right upper jaw and cheek. I first went to my dentists office (more than once) and was told it was nothing (wrong!!) I went to my doctor for an antibiotic because I thought maybe it was a sinus infection and it wasn't getting better. Doctor Sharma saw the swelling in my jaw and cheek and ordered an antibiotic treatment - which has helped immensely. I tried to call my dentist that same day (there were out of the office for all day training) but I left a message. I received a call back from the dentist with referrals to 2 other specialists who were able to see me for emergency care. I am thankful to Dr. Sharma that she listened to my concerns and understood. I am thankful that she was able to see me. (I will be looking for a different dentist shortly.)

March 9, 2020 3:35 PM

Dr Sharma is very professional empathetic and friendly

March 9, 2020 3:35 PM

always a good experience

March 4, 2020 6:55 AM

This is the best medical office I have been to ever. The preventative care and concern is above and beyond. They treat the person not just the person's ability to pay. I am happy to have my major doctors under one roof and close to my preferred hospital.

February 28, 2020 10:46 AM

As you can see - She has been an excellent doctor in every way.

February 28, 2020 10:46 AM

Excellent!!

February 28, 2020 8:24 AM

I am very pleased with Dr Sharma's care. She listens and answers my questions and lets me know she cares.

February 27, 2020 12:21 PM

I have been seeing Dr. Sharma forever or seems to be. She not only sees me, my husband and my parents. Her husband sees my son! Awesome.

February 24, 2020 4:50 PM

I have been seeing Dr. Rani Sharma for a number of years and wouldn't think of seeing any other Primary Care Physician. She's excellent, takes her time explaining things and has a wonderful personality. I hope I never have to give a negative review.

February 24, 2020 4:24 PM

Dr. Sharma always takes time to listen and she is very compassionate

February 17, 2020 7:51 PM

Best doctor I have ever had. Listens and spends quality time with me.

February 11, 2020 7:50 AM

Excellent visit.

February 11, 2020 7:50 AM

good visit. listened to my questions and thoughtfully gave me answers.

February 7, 2020 4:26 PM

Love Dr. Sharma!

February 1, 2020 8:54 AM

When I go the office I will wait at the lobby then wait for 10 mins but when inside the room the wait there is longer than 15 mins.

February 1, 2020 8:54 AM

I have been a patient of Dr. Sharma and love her so would not change doctor but maybe fix the waiting time when inside the room.

January 28, 2020 6:24 AM

Dr. Sharma gave me all the time I needed at this visit.

January 27, 2020 5:19 PM

Regular checkup. Dr. Sharma listens carefully and answers all my questions.

January 27, 2020 5:19 PM

Dr. Sharma is very caring and offers suggestions, even though she cannot solve my problems.

January 27, 2020 1:40 PM

Dr Sharma is the best

January 4, 2020 5:54 AM

Dr. Sharma always gives me the gift of time. She listens carefully and tries to come up with solutions

January 4, 2020 5:54 AM

I have followed Dr. Sharma ever since she started as my doctor way back in Palatine!

January 1, 2020 7:18 PM

Trying to get an appointment with any doctor is almost impossible. Had a stomach and right side problem and they told me to go to the ER. This was in December the early part. Was told to have a follow up appointment with my doctor and almost didn't one but because it was a follow up from the ER i was able to a doctor. I'm hearing a lot of complaints from many people who go there and call and cannot get in for weeks. What are we to do when we need to see someone. You really need to get more help and stop sending people to the ER.

December 29, 2019 11:01 PM

good

December 29, 2019 11:01 PM

okay good

December 28, 2019 7:31 AM

Sr Sharma treats her patients with respect and always answers my questions and doesn't rush my visits

December 27, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Sharma is the best! I have remained her patient for several years though she has changed locations several times.

December 24, 2019 9:51 AM

Dr. Sharma was spot on about the causes of symptoms I was experiencing.

December 11, 2019 10:55 AM

Good experience - Dr. Sharma is both knowledgeable and personable.

November 26, 2019 9:02 AM

Dr Sharma looked at an area on my skin that concerns me and referred me to a specialist

November 26, 2019 9:02 AM

Dr Sharma is always professional and friendly

November 25, 2019 8:23 PM

cleared up some misunderstandings about the medication I am taking

November 23, 2019 7:07 PM

I've been going to Dr. Sharma for almost 5 years. she is a great doctor!

November 18, 2019 2:29 PM

I always have a good visit with Dr Sharma

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

good experience!

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

I'll would like her to be my family doctor.

November 16, 2019 3:35 PM

prompt. no waiting

November 13, 2019 9:16 AM

Dr Sharma always takes the time to answer all my questions. She listens to what I have to say. And the way she presents information I know I have input into what course of action we take on any and all my health care needs

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

Before this visit I hadn't seen this provider for about 6 months. this is the reason I answered "no" to several questions. I always have full confidence in Dr. Sharma.

November 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sharma is the best. I've seen her for almost 7 years. she is wonderful. she smiles knows me well and I feel like she genuinely cares.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rani Sharma has been my primary physician for a number of years. She is also my husband's primary physician. She is always tuned in to what I have to say or what questions that I may have. She is kind, thorough and just genuinely one of the finest doctors that I have ever seen over the course of my long life. She is a great asset to the Advocate Health System. I pray that she will continue to practice medicine until I die.

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I have seen Dr Rani Sharma for several years. I feel she is a great Doctor, very knowledgeable and concerned about my health. She suggested a pneumonia shot which I received.

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

This was my first visit to Dr. Sharma & she is exceptional in all possible ways. She is the best PCP.

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

I think she is a wonderful doctor!

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

I was quite satisfied with my visit.

October 16, 2019 7:00 PM

As usual, Dr. Sharma provided the excellent level of care and expertise that we have always received from her for many years.

October 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Overall, very good. My diabetes is under very good control

September 12, 2019 7:00 PM

The girls that greet _____ at the door are very helpful & friendly - the actual aides in the office could be more friendly.

September 11, 2019 7:00 PM

My doctor is very good and I would recommend her.

September 11, 2019 7:00 PM

My experience with my PCP was very good. She's an excellent doctor and she is very caring.

September 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Rani Sharma is excellent. The visit really helped me. I trust her very much!

August 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Another great visit with Dr. Sharma. This was for a pre-op physical.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good, I've been seeing Dr. Sharma she's a good listener ad is very professional.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rani Sharma speaks in words that I totally understand. She seems to have a interest in my health now and in the future.

August 18, 2019 7:00 PM

My provider is wonderful. The central scheduling system the hospital uses is TERRIBLE. It is impossible to call my physician. I can - and do -email her, but central scheduling seems to get in the way.

August 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sharma is outstanding! I have seen many within this practice. Dr X (sp?) is also quite good. I would not recommend or see any of the others. If Dr. Sharma were to leave this practice, I would look elsewhere for a provider! Nursing staff is wonderful and forthright with information.

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sharma has always been the best doctor. I've been with her for 20 years or more

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

This was my first time to have this doctor. I found her very nice and easy to talk with. I would have no problem with seeing her again.

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sharma is always concerned with prevention and maintaining good health. She always listens and offers suggestions in order to maintain good health.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Really like Dr. Sharma. She is professional, caring and current in her knowledge. She helped me understand several issues and move towards making choices.

July 26, 2019 7:00 PM

DR Sharma was Great but I was extremely disappointed in the facility and Advocate. The facility and the way it is managed make you feel as if you were on an assembly line. The Advocate Portal is awkward and unless the patient continually uses the system Advocate Changes system and a Patient is unable to Access.

July 25, 2019 7:00 PM

She demonstrated the Epley maneuver with me! This was a great help.

July 24, 2019 7:00 PM

I love the time and care that Dr. Sharma gives to me at my visits. She is very knowledgeable in every area of my concerns. I feel very confident in all of her suggestions and advice. I NEVER feel rushed or that any of my questions are not important. I am 110% satisfied with the care and compassion she has.

July 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sharma always spends time going over all my test results and answers all my questions. She is the BEST!

July 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I walked in with a list of Rx meds, past surgeries, and medical issues for which I had questions. Everything was addressed.

July 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Sharma is an Excellent Doctor !!

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Sharma always listens. I believe she always has my best interest. She has kept me healthy for many years

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rani Sharma is the best doctor I've ever had. I'm moving out of state, and will certainly miss her. It will be hard to find someone to replace her.

July 2, 2019 7:00 PM

The doctor seemed truly concerned about my illness and we discussed all options for treatment.

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rani Sharma listens to what you have to say. She'll ask questions to further understand what you are telling her. She is kind, considerate, and gentle. I have the utmost confidence in her for all of my health concerns and care.

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Sharma took the time to go over everything I needed to discuss and very pleasant.

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Very happy with Dr. Sharma. Disappointed that labs are no longer done in office. The wait in the lab is always way too long.

June 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good.

June 16, 2019 7:00 PM

We asked the nurse if we can get the results of X-ray from the last time, the nurse said "we don't have enough time"I fell and my shoulder arm was swelled and hurt. I showed the swollen part to the doctor, the doctor looked at it, but she wasn't even touch to ask which part is hurt or which part is not hurt, she asked from 1 to 10 how much the hurt is, I said 8, she looked at it and ordered an X-ray and order inflammation medicine, referred to a specialist and let us go.

May 31, 2019 7:00 PM

very informative I have been seeing Dr. Sharma for many years.

May 31, 2019 7:00 PM

good

May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

As always, she is a wonderful doctor! Very smart and always takes the time to find out how you are feeling and always checking on everything. Very professional.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sharma is a wonderful doctor.

May 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Happy with my doctor. However, wait time for doctor and blood test was terrible. For this visit, I was at the office for 90 minutes, 72% (65 minutes) was waiting time (waiting for nurse, doctor, blood draw technician). Please improve this. I also didn't receive any call on blood test result. Had to find out from portal myself.

May 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good.

May 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good as always.

May 5, 2019 7:00 PM

it is very hard to get in tase this Dr. she is overbook with appointments all the time more spots should be left open for her regular patients

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sharma is eady to talk to. Very warm but knowledgable. Common sense medical care with no un needed trsts or treatments. I love her

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Good.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

I like Dr. Sharma very much. She is patient & answers all my questions.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Very happy with the care Dr. Sharma has given me.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

March 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I was looking for a new GP (needed due to new insurance plan) and I have found her!

March 21, 2019 7:00 PM

I like Dr. Sharma. My health is excellent. I see her yearly.

March 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Sharma reviewed my lab results, made suggestions for new vitamins, and spent a good deal of time reviewing the questions I had on my list to review during my annual exam. She was patient, took the time to answer all my questions, offer alternative solutions, and listened to my concerns/needs.

February 25, 2019 6:00 PM

I like my primary care doctor (Sharma) she was very friendly and professionsal

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Scharma is excellent she has been my doctor for years.

February 22, 2019 6:00 PM
