Shefaali Sharma, MD
Devoted To Patient Health
Dr. Sharma is a board-certified specialist in obstetrics and gynecology dedicated to personal, reproductive, and family health.
“Even as a kid I wanted to be a doctor and deliver babies! That early interest, along with many personal experiences led me to this field of medicine,” she says. As a mother and physician, I strive to provide high-quality, evidence-based medicine in a compassionate, personalized and realistic manner. By educating patients regarding their conditions and options, I give them autonomy to pursue their healthcare goals in a supportive environment.”
Excellence and Service
A native of Racine, Dr. Sharma worked as a nursing assistant during college. She holds bachelor of science degrees in neurobiology and psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She earned her medical degree from the UW School of Medicine and Public Health in 2012, where she subsequently served as co-chief administrative resident in obstetrics and gynecology. She continues as an adjunct faculty representative for the OB/GYN clinical competency committee.
Her previous experience includes practicing as an OB/GYN physician with a local private practice also associated with UnityPoint Meriter Hospital for nearly five years. She is a Fellow with the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology and serves as a Community Board Advisor for the Wisconsin PATCH Program, a youth advocacy program that works to empower young people to take control of their own health.
The Best Medicine
“I do have a special interest in helping educate young people about their gynecologic health and how to advocate for themselves in a healthcare setting,” Dr. Sharma says. “Early learning in a safe environment is important for lifelong understanding of our bodies as they evolve and grow.”
Dr. Sharma says her interests are why she chose to practice medicine at Associated Physicians.
“I can see patients the way they need to be seen - with the benefits of a multiple-discipline practice where we all work together for our patients across ages to provide complete continuity of family care.”
