“I aim to help my patients live the life they have been given, rather than fear the disease they have been diagnosed with.”

Provider Bio down arrow

When you are one of Dr. Rohit Sharma’s patients, you become part of his family.

“As I had family members afflicted with cancer, I relate to my patients who have been diagnosed with the disease,” Dr. Sharma said. His mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and his wife is a cancer survivor.

As a part of his family, Dr. Sharma’s patients can call him on his personal phone at any time.

“Having a patient’s and their family’s appreciation is the best part of my day and more important to me than any award,” Dr. Sharma said. “I consider my patients to be a part of my family. I am here to guide them through their treatment journey.”

While Dr. Sharma is a surgical oncologist today because of his past experience with the disease, he is a surgeon because of a private audience he had with Mother Theresa when he was younger.

“At the end of the meeting she asked me what I wanted to be and whether I wanted to be a surgeon like my dad. That struck me like a lightning bolt, and that is the day I knew I was going to be a surgeon,” Dr. Sharma said.

Dr. Sharma completed his general surgery residency at Easton Hospital in Easton, Pennsylvania before completing research and surgical oncology fellowships at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York.

He was a surgical oncologist at the Lehigh Valley Health Network in Pennsylvania before coming to Marshfield.

Dr. Sharma and his wife, who has a doctorate degree in nursing, have five children. Dr. Sharma also is a self-proclaimed “history buff.”
