Dr. Shefaali Sharma has been providing healthcare to women in Madison since 2012 and joined Madison Women’s Health in 2016, specializing in high and low risk obstetrics, pre-contraception counselling, management of abnormal uterine bleeding, multi-modal approaches to pelvic pain, and minimally invasive surgical techniques.
“Caring for a woman across her lifetime, sharing in the wonder of pregnancy and childbirth, improving quality of life by curing her painful periods, and holding her hand as she drifts asleep for surgery – becoming an OB/GYN simply fulfills my definition of medicine.”
Dr. Sharma was born in New Zealand and raised in southeast Wisconsin. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, Dr. Sharma was consistently recognized for her exceptional scholarship, humanism and professionalism, receiving the Dr. Sam G. Person Scholarship, awarded to students pursuing a career in OB/GYN with outstanding scholarly and humanistic qualities, and being nominated by her peers for induction into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. Prior to earning her Doctorate of Medicine, Dr. Sharma received Bachelor of Science degrees in Neurobiology and Psychology and worked as a certified nursing assistant throughout her undergraduate and medical school training.
Above all, Dr. Sharma’s practice is grounded in a holistic, patient-cantered perspective focused on empowering her patients through excellent communication and evidence-based care.
“I have cultivated a holistic perspective of medicine, beginning as an undergraduate studying the mind from both a psychological and neurobiological perspective, and persisting through my training and establishment of my practice. My bio-psycho-social approach allows me to actively engage with my patients and empower them to manage their health and achieve their goals.”
A resident of Madison, Dr. Sharma enjoys cooking and frequenting local farmer’s markets with her husband and children. She serves as an Advisory Board Member for the Providers and Teens Communicating for Health (PATCH) Program through the Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health.
