Dr. Sherman helped to assure me that we would find a cause for my acid reflux and digestive issues. He asked a lot of questions to get a whole picture of my health and is communicating with my GP to ensure all of my health records are considered. Feeling hopeful for the first time in a long time.

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.
