Dr Shar was willing to see me when Azalea Ortho wouldn’t because a Christus ER visit left me needing help after my finger being degloved. Dr Shar was so fantastic that I was grateful that Azalea Ortho wouldn’t see me. He was SO great. He listened, he helped, and he took into account my situation and needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a hand surgeon.

Dr. Shar is very attentive to my concerns and explained the procedure at a level I could understand easily! I have been to several doctors over the past years who have told me that they are unable to do anything to help repair my nail bed and Dr. Shar took on the challenge! Thank you for your help and I am looking forward to the results moving forward :)

Dr Shar is an amazing doctor & surgeon. I can’t say enough good things about him. He was always very attentive, prompt, caring & compassionate. A great surgeon can’t recommend him highly enough. He made the difference between losing or saving a hand. Miracle worker!
