I have seen Dr. Sherman for at least 5 years, and, along the way, I have developed some serious gastrointestinal problems. I also have some longstanding, intractable GI problems. Dr. Sherman is an extremely caring and attentive physician,and he doesn't give up. He certainly extended himself for me. I cannot speak highly enough of him.

A really good doctor with a wonderful bedside manner, and a sense of humor, too. Thorough and efficient. His staff is extremely organized and the office runs well. No time is wasted. I was place in a room before my appointedtime and the doctor was right on time. If new, you should arrive earlier to fill out the paperwork. I was already a patient, and in the system, so I just had to verify info and I was ready.

I have been seeing Dr. Sherman for at least 8 years, possibly 10 years. He has seen me through several serious diseases and has been very helpful in a chronic, long-term digestive problem. What is important to note about Dr. Shermanis that he is an excellent diagnostician, and he is extremely kind and caring. He will spend an appropriate amount of time with you, and he is one of the nicest physicians whom I know,

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 goodthings 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.
