Biography

Shikha Sharma, M.D., is a cardiologist with MidMichigan Health and is a member of the comprehensive heart and vascular team. This team includes cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, heart failure and structural heart specialists, as well as vascular and cardiovascular surgeons.

As a cardiologist, Dr. Sharma works with patients who have a variety of cardiac-related conditions such as coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, peripheral vascular disease, valvular and structural heart disease, congenital heart defects, heart failure, and other complex cardiac conditions. Additionally, she has extensive experience in treating heart rhythm disorders.

According to Dr. Sharma, she chose cardiovascular disease as a specialty because she felt that she could help patients understand their disease process so that they could actively participate in the management of their condition, as well as their treatment plan.

Philosophy of Care

“My philosophy of care is to treat each patient as though they are a member of my own family,” she said. “My goal is to help them understand their disease process so that we can work together as a team, towards a shared vision of helping them feel better. My desire is to build a trust and lifelong partnership with my patients.”

When asked what the most satisfying aspect of her work was, Dr. Sharma said that is was making a difference in quality of life of her patients.

“Patients with heart problems are usually very anxious due to gravity of the disease process,” she added. “I am always ready to go the extra mile to make my patients feel comfortable and to help them understand their heart condition. I provide all the treatment options and assist them with selecting the best possible treatment plan for them.”

Special Interests and Procedures

In addition to general cardiology, Dr. Sharma has a special interest in the implantation and management of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices, including permanent pacemakers, HIS bundle pacing (involving normal conduction system of the heart), leadless pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiac synchronization therapy.

According to Dr. Sharma, she feels that the introduction of leadless pacemaker technology is the most exciting new development in the field of cardiac devices. “It is changing the field in how cardiac pacing is performed traditionally,” she added.

In addition to English, Dr. Sharma speaks Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. In her free time, she enjoys jogging, rowing and cooking.
