Philosophy

"To listen to patients and perform a proper neurological exam. This is the critical work-up. Testing is ancillary or confirmatory. This holds true throughout the duration of my relationship with each patient. Ongoing attentiveness to a patient's spoken and implicit communication is paramount to excellent patient care."

Medical Interests

Dr. Sharett specializes in diagnosis and treatment across the spectrum of neurological conditions. This includes migraine/headache disorders, stroke, seizure, Multiple Sclerosis/neuroimmunological conditions, Myasthenia Gravis/neuromuscular diseases, and cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s dementia. She has a particular interest and expertise in migraine/headache management and in recognizing neurological manifestations of rheumatological conditions. Dr. Sharett develops long-standing relationships with her patients and persists to achieve results towards patient relief and an enhanced quality of life.

Hobbies/Personal

Dr. Sharett loves spending time with her family, especially her daughter Violet, whose curious nature provides her with a unique perspective. When Violet saw an image of the human brain in her mom's office she asked, "Where is the caring part?"

Dr. Sharett is currently accepting new patients.
