Dr. Kavita Sharma
Primary Care Doctor, Internist
I grew up in Buffalo, N.Y. and East Lansing, MI. I went to undergraduate at Michigan State University, where both my parents are faculty. I then attended medical school at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. It is one of the largest medical schools in the country and I got to see a lot of interesting medical conditions there. I did my residency training at University of Michigan, which is a renowned medical center. After that, I served on staff there for two years, teaching medical students and residents.
I feel that I am finally able to build relationships with my patients and take the extra care needed since I am now in control of my schedule.
In 2000, my husband and I moved to California to enjoy the fair weather. I worked for Kaiser Permanente for four years. I enjoyed my time at Kaiser but finally decided to leave last year to begin practice with my husband in Los Gatos. I am enjoying private practice a lot since it has allowed me to spend more time with my patients. I feel that I am finally able to build relationships with my patients and take the extra care needed since I am now in control of my schedule.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my two young children. They are a bundle of joy and energy and keep me busy with all of their activities. I also enjoy exercising and reading. As the children grow older, I look forward to traveling to exotic places and learning about new cultures.
