Additional Biographical Information

Dear Parents,
Let me introduce myself as your new pediatrician in the community.

My Name is Dr. Maria Josefina Sharma MD, Board Certified Pediatrician. I received my Pediatrics Residency training at Metropolitan Hospital located in NYC in combination with Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center/ New York Medical College, after my Internship in Eppendorf Krankenhaus, Hamburg, Germany. Soon after my residency, I pursued a Fellowship in Pediatrics Nephrology (Renal) at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn NY, which I successfully completed in 2010.

Since then I have been dedicated to the General Practice of Pediatrics with a touch of renal in the area of Brooklyn, NY and Passaic/Paterson in New Jersey. Now I am opening a new chapter and I am looking forward to establishing my service to the beautiful Township of Warwick and its surroundings with the Herbert Kania Pediatric Group. I am wholeheartedly committed to carrying forward the goals and vision set by Dr. Herbert Kania and the cutting-edge medical care goal set forward by Boston Children Health Physician guidelines.

In addition to English, I speak fluent Spanish.

Thank you all for your lovely welcome.

Josefina
Maria Josefina Sharma, M.D.


Estimados Padres,

Permitanme introducirme como su nueva Pediatra en la comunidad.
Mi nombre is Maria Josefina Sharma, doctora certificada en el Board de Pediatria. Recibi mi Residencia de Pediatria en el Hospital Metropolitan de New York en combinacion rotatoria con el Children Hospital Maria Fareri en Westchester Medical Center/New York Medical College, despues de mi internado en Eppendorf Krankenhaus Hamburgo en Alemania. Luego de mi residencia estudie Nefrologia Pediatrica en SUNY Downstate New York, Brooklyn, especialidad que fue completada exitosamente en 2010.

Desde entonces me he dedicado a la Practica General con algunos toques renales en el area de Brooklyn, NY y Passaic/Paterson en New Jersey. Ahora quiero abrir un nuevo capitulo y establecer mi servicios en la hermosa area de Warwick y sus alrededores en conjunto con el Grupo Pediatrico de Herbert Kania. Estoy profundament enfocada a seguir la vision y planes del Dr Herbert Kania y a establecer los mas actualizados tratamientos medicos inspirado en la plataforma de salud del Boston Children Health Physicians.

Ademas de hablar Espanol claramente, tengo un entedimiento nitido de la cultura y diversidad hispana, el cual facilitaria el tratamiento medico a muchas familias de differentes regions de America

Les doy las gracias sincera por la amorosa bienvenida.
