I have been seeing Dr. Sherman for at least 5 years. I went to him after my former gastroenterologist closed his practice. My rheumatologist recommended him. He saw me through 2 years of multiple pancreatitis attacks. I can't say enough good things about him. He works in a gastroenterology practice, and I have seen some of his colleagues as well. I highly recommend Dr. Sherman, and I see a lot of doctors.

Not much of a wait, just the paperwork. This appointment was booked for my husband. I went to the Dr. several years ago and was happy so recommended him to my husband.
Dr. Sherman is a great physician - knowledgeable and very professional.
As always, visit with Dr Sherman was productive. He always has a new med or idea up his sleeve. The wait time was due to an emergency; he was not at fault. In fact he should be commended.
Dr Sherman listened very carefully to all of my complaints, and thoroughly reviewed with me the content of my previous office visit, which was some months previous. He updated my treatment plan going forward, and we scheduled a procedure which I had requested, to get a closer look at my current problems. We also discussed diet and my exercise program. Altogether, Dr Sherman is an excellent practitioner.

I'd recommend. Pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Thorough, affable, and totally engaged in his patients' well-being.

Everyone at Concorde was friendly. Before the appt, it was so easy to schedule my appt with ZocDocs, and fill out my paperwork ahead of time. I love that the office is so tech forward (with a patient portal, I'm able to see all of my records online)! Dr. Sherman was very attentive and took a lot of time taking my history and doing an abdominal exam. He was knowledeble, friendly, funny and personable. He was very clear in his plan for testing to get a clear diagnosis. His office was able to schedule me for a endoscopy on Monday after my appt on Friday! Everyone at the Kips Bay Endoscopy Center was attentive and professional. It's a very well-run center! The procedure was so easy that I woke up in recovery and asked when they were going to do the procedure! Ha! The anesthesiologist was attentive, the nurses were knowledeble and caring. I received a call the next day to check on how I was doing. Dr. Sherman met with me before and after the procedure, and called later in the week to go over my test results and findings. Overall, I would rate my experience as as close to perfect as one could have. The only thing that I would change (my own OCD) is they need to clean the doors around the doornobs in the exam rooms. Otherwise, the facility was spotless.
Dr. Sherman was very personable and professional. He listened which is always a plus. This was a first visit so everything is very preliminary. I will finish up a screening then review again.
Dr. Sherman was so warm and funny. His bedside manner is phenomenal. He was very easy to talk to about my concerns and seemed to really care about getting to the bottom of what's been troubling me. I highly recommend him!!
He's the best! Good bedside manner, excellent communication, obvious expertise.
Dr Sherman is a warm caring doctor. A good listener I have full confidence in his ability to diagnose. He is cautious and not an alarmist
Positives: My experience with Dr. Sherman himself was great. He was open to listening to what my issues were, and his bedside manner was great as well. Negatives: It is very difficult to actually get in contact with someone (a receptionist, his assistant, etc.) in the office. In addition, other than the guy who helped me fill out the new patient forms, i found the staff to be very abrasive. They are not friendly and seem to have poor attitudes, as if they are upset to be there. One thing that really ticked me off, was when I had just finished filling out the forms and started to stand up from my seat; as soon as I made a move to stand, a staff member was already pulling the chair out from under me. I wasn't even fully standing yet!! I get that everyone is working long days/hours, but that does not give them the excuse to be rude to patients.
Dr Sherman has been my doctor for many years and has always been caring and attentive. I wouldn't change.
It was a very good visit as always, Dr. A Sherman has been my doctor for many years. I hope I never because of insurance coverage have to change from using his services.
Dr. Sherman was very knowledgable and understanding. The insurance and medical industries are so polluted and out of touch, but Dr. Sherman was a light in the dark and was willing to help even when my insurance proved to be terrible. Thanks for the help!
I have been seeing him for over a decade. Incredible doctor and experience from start to finish. Rather than focusing on nonsense above like the office environment, I will simply say that he is an incredibly knowledgeable doctor, thoughtful, caring, and responsive with little to no wait every time I go. Keep up the great work Dr. Sherman and Kristina!
He is the best doctor i ever saw, i will recomend everyone who have gastroenterological concerns!
Dr Sherman is very thorough and caring and looks at your complete health picture. He also has a sense of humor which is helpful in a doctor.
Good session. Waited for blood drawing because the office was short staffed that day.
Great doctor. Highly recommended.
Absolutely comfortable (as much as a doctor visit can be). Loved Dr. Sherman, Jenny (the head nurse) and Irene (the go-to gal).
This was my first visit, and I was impressed with the professionalism, courtesy and efficiency of everyone in the office that guided me through the registration process. I liked Dr. Sherman very much, and was put at ease immediately.
Good listening skills. Professional with a step wise approach to follow up.
He is the best - the whole package.
Terrific doctor! So thorough and helpful. Will be seeing again
Clearly discussed impression, clearly laid out diagnostic testing plan Must add, having my blood drawn was barely felt. "4stars to her!".
Excellent doctor. Office appointments usually start very late.
I love this man.
This Doc rocks Zoc Doc!
I am confident and comfortable as dr Sherman's patient.
Went very well.. He listened and made a recommendation.
Dr. Sherman was the first doctor, after three other doctor visits with different doctors and three different scans, who actually asked me extensive questions about my medical history and thus helped guide me to a solution for my ailment. He was kind, patient, prompt, respectful, and most importantly knowledgeable about much more than simply his speciality - Gastroenterology. I highly recommend him to anyone as he will see you as the human you are and not just a patient.
Alex Sherman MD, He is very frofesional and helpful! I definitely recommend him
Excellent doctor - was very upfront. Good style.
