Dr. Arthur M Sharkey, MD - Reviews
Went in with a healthy right index finger that had a boutonniere deformity, caused by a recent laceration. 6 surgeries later, the finger was amputated and still infected. Dr. Sharkey & his "team" of attorneys deny any wrong doing to this day. I have had more invasive and technically challenging surgeries in the past and never a hint of an infection. Dr. Sharkey couldn't even do a basic repair on a finger without an infection. Several months of intensive antibiotic infusions, 40 hyperbaric chamber sessions and 2 hospitalizations were necessary to save my hand/life! I have heard similar stories from several of Dr. Sharkey's previous patients. Most of those I spoke with refused to return to him after their first office visit. Yet he is still in practice. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE NEEDING ANYTHING MEDICALLY RELATED!

Dr. Sharkey has operated on both of my wrists this year and has given me excellent care. I give him my highest recommendation.
I went to see Dr. a Harley for the 11st time today...I was very impressed with is thoroughness..I had surgery on my trigger finger by a different hand specialist and I am having a lot of post o.o trouble..Dr. a Harley have me hope that my finger will be ok again.After I have the MRI I will know more...He made me feel very confident of his treatment plan...I will post again if I have to have surgery...So far awesome...
Dr. Sharkey diagnosed my condition immediately after listening to my symptoms and thoroughly reviewing my x-rays. He proposed having basal joint arthroplasty on my right thumb. After "googling" what the surgery would entail, I was convinced I was going to experience excruciating pain post operatively. Dr. Sharkey and the anesthesiologist confirmed that liklihood. They both prepared me for the worst and explained that I would be on heavy duty pain medications for at least a month. Holy bejeebers, to my surprise, absolutely NO post op pain. Looking forward to having my left thumb surgery! The only sugguestion I have for you as a patient, be prepared with your questions ahead of time. Dr. Sharkey will spend as much time with you as you need, but he won't dilly-dally! He is thorough, but wastes no time!
