Dr. Shar is a caring, professional, and to the point. He is very knowledgeable and explains things where the average person can understand. I would definitely recommend him to others and I would return to him if needed.

Dr. Adam Shar is an excellent specialist who deals with fingers, hands and arms. As a physician, he is very detail oriented in any questions I asked. He shows x-rays and explains what it shows. He's very concerned as he examines you. He's an excellent surgeon and I've healed and recovered completely!!!
