Dr. Rajiv Sharma attended medical school at Dayanand Medical College, Punjab, India. He received his Internal Medicine training from Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, California and received his Gastroenterology Fellowship training from University of Rochester, Rochester, New York. Dr. Sharma trained under the mentorship of Dr. Richard G. Farmer, who is world renowned for his work on Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Dr. Sharma’s special interests include GERD, NERD, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis), IBS, Acute and Chronic Pancreatitis, Gastrointestinal Malignancies and Familial Cancer Syndromes.

In an effort to share his extensive knowledge with the public, Dr. Sharma released his first book, Pursuit of Gut Happiness: A Guide for Using Probiotics to Achieve Optimal Health, in 2014.

In Dr. Sharma’s free time, he enjoys medical writing, watching movies, exercising and spending time with his family. He believes in “whole person care” and the effect of mind, body and spirit on “wellness”. He has special interest in Nutrition, Exercise and Healthy eating. He prides himself to be a “fact doctor” as he backs his opinions and works with solid scientific research while aiming to deliver a simple and clear message.


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Sharma’s for the last 3 years and he has helped me get my Ulcerative Colitis under control. I really appreciate his approach to wellness because he looks to solve the problem rather than simply alleviate symptoms. He puts a lot of emphasis on natural gut health. He is personable, empathetic, and eager to help.

I have used Dr. Sharma as my go to gastroenterologist. I have no hesitation in contacting him for any questions concerning patients or other GI issues. My patients enjoy having him as their GI doctor especially those with chronic issues that need his level of expertise.

Dr. Sharma is a professional and dedicated physician with a personalized approach to patient care. The health care system needs more physicians like him. I would feel very comfortable with my family under his medical care

— Dr. AA, Referring Doctor


Dr. Sharma has been the GI doctor for my family for almost 4 years. Ever since answering his calling to
open a practice in Terre Haute, we have made the choice to continue seeing Dr. Sharma even though it
is a 4-hour round trip drive to do so. His approach to patient care involves both conventional and proven
holistic medicine, focusing on the whole body. We are certainly looking forward to a continued
relationship with Dr. Sharma for all of our future GI needs.
