I am very grateful to have found Dr. Sherman. He is patient and a careful listener and took all my complaintsseriously, even when whatever is wrong with me seems to extend outside gastroenterology. He asked careful questions about my symptoms and explored possible underlying causes that hadn’t occurred to me. I’m really grateful for his help.

It was quite efficient. I have been a patient. And my records were well organized and Dr. Sherman went through it very efficiently. The billing was awesome and checked through my potential cost and gave me the codes to double check with the insurance company and procedures before the endoscopy and colonoscopy were explained carefully.

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 appointed time 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. Sherman is 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 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.
