Prakash Sharma, MD Joins Covenant Clinic Hospitalists

posted 2/8/2018 in News

Wheaton Iowa is pleased to welcome Prakash Sharma, MD to Covenant Clinic Hospitalists. Dr. Sharma specializes in Internal Medicine, Geriatrics and Palliative Care and is located at Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo.

"I was looking for a hospital that provides critical care to a close-knit community," he said. "Covenant is a non-profit and charity-based hospital whose central principal is to provide high quality care to patients and grow with the community. That impressed me most."

Dr. Sharma received his Medical Degree from Kasturba Medical College, Manipal University, Mangalore, Karnataka, India in 2006. He completed his Internal Medicine residency at Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn, New York from 2010 to 2013, and completed his Geriatric fellowship at Flushing Hospital in Flushing, New York from 2013 to 2014.  Since that time, Dr. Sharma has been working at Good Samaritan Hospital and rounding on two skilled nursing home facilities in Baltimore, Maryland.

"My goal is to provide the best medical care to my patients with affection and warmth. In addition to the humanitarian reasons, what drove me to take up medicine as a career are the multiple roles that a doctor plays: a strategist, a crisis manager, but above all a true friend who is always ready to listen in times of distress."

You will find Dr. Sharma at Covenant Medical Center, 3421 West 9th Street, in Waterloo.
