Left with a very good feeling. Looking forward to my next visit.
Visited the doctor several times. Each time I felt rushed through the appointment, the doctor did not give me more than 5 minutes of his time! Would not answer my questions, did not adequately inform me about the procedure. Horrible, would not recommend.
Excellent and professional. Dr. Sherer is highly recommended.
Great thorough Doctor!

he was great, very personable... diagnosed tha problem rite away
Great with my young son. Explained things clearly.
The staff is very nice. The doctor was kind and gentle.
Dr. Sherer was very through and addressed all my concerns. He even took the time to consult my other physicians reguarding my health concerns, which no other doctor has done for me before. I finally had an answer to all my concerns. It was also a bonus that everyone in the office was friendly and the wait time was very efficient!
Great visit, Doctor Sherer was courteous and insightful. The staff was very professional. It is a great location, I felt right at home during the whole process!
very professional and knowledgeable, knew what he was looking at right away and was quick to follow up with me and make sure I was taking the proper precautions with a follow up procedure.
I found Dr. Sherer through Zoc Doc. I was seen on time and it was a pleasant experience. The doctor and staff are professional yet make you feel very relaxed and comfortable. The doctor addressed all my skin concerns! Highly recommend.
Very thorough, exact and helpful!
Dr. Schere was abrupt and offered and offered no educationl information regarding a skin disorder which he said should be checked for a biopsy. With a potentially serious condition such as carcinoma a medical professional should take at least a few minutes to discuss his/her reasons for suggesting a procedure that will result in shaving off skin from one's face with the possibility of it being diagnosed as carcinoma. This dermatologist spent all of four minutes in the examining room with me and ran off. Would not recommend to anyone seeking a patient, doctor who shows at least a bit of concern for his customers.
He was very pleasant and thorough with the medical examination. He genuinely care for your well being.
Dr. Sherer was very professional and completely understanding of my needs.
The paperwork took the longest. It would be good if that can be done on Zoc Doc. He probably took 5 minutes to see me and gave 4 prescriptions and their acne treatment line. There was good advice for taking care of the skin.
He was very kind and attentive and answered all of my questions.
Was in and out of the office by 30 mins. Staff was nice. Doctor was professional!!
Very good. Professional.
Polite staff, clean office & a knowledgeable doctor.
Great visit - I'm a new patient and they were very efficient, Dr. Sherer was very friendly and knowledgeable. I will definitely be back!
Very thorough, exact and helpful!
The people in the office was very nice and didn't have to wait to long.
The doctor made recommendations after a thorough exam.
I finally have an answer.
Excellent, no nonsense doctor. Resolved skin issue on 1st visit right away w. the proper medication. Definitely recommended without any hesitation!
Great! Thorough and knowledgable !
He rushed in and rushed out. Didn't even examine the issue I came in for more than 2 seconds or ask me any questions about the issue, nor did he give me a moment to tell him more. He was more concerned about the type of insurance I had. He left the room without even asking if I had any questions. Needless to say I will never visit him again and I will even go as far to warn many others about him so they don't waste their time like I did.
Great doctor. Explained everything. He does care for the pasient!
i felt like they tried to sell me on products for their financial benefit instead of using what would work with my insurance.
Professionsl...exam went very fasrt..very little discussion betweed and patient about my visit.
Dr Sherer spends only a few minutes with the patient. He does not screen you carefully for your problem AT ALL. He visits you very briefly, and then goes out and just sends his assistance back to tell you what medication to take. I sometimes wonder, did he even look at me to verify what I am saying about my skin is indeed true!!! He could make a good businessman but never a caring doctor!!!
Everything about it was wonderful. Very professional and knowledgeable MD. Staff were extremely pleasant. I had a very nice experience.
Everyone in the office was very pleasant. The doctor asked me questions and prescribed medications to address the issue. I was pleased with the visit.
It was my first visit but her seemed engaged and nice. Asked questions about my existing condition and made his recommendations. His office staff was efficient and nice as well. They called in an alternate prescription for me when the first one was out of my budget.
staff was very nice and helpful and the doctor was great
Had a non-emergency concern on the day after my visit. I called the Huntington office knowing they were in Plainview that day and left a message. The next morning first thing they called to give me advice on the condition.
Despite everybody's kindness, It's been so fast that I don't feel that he took time to really care and answer all my concerns.
Incredible best dermatologist I have ever been to! I have been going to dermatologist for 21 y ears. So attentive and truly concerned about patient. Listens to your needs and is a wonderful doctor wish I net him 10 years ago!!
Patient friendly, Genuine interest in the case history of the patient and very professional approach.
Great! Would recommend Dr Sherer, to any one looking for a dermatologist.
Very little wait time, friendly office staff
Dr. Sherer was able to figure out exactly what was wrong with me, immediately! I have been to many dermatologists who couldn't seem to figure out what was going on. Finally I have found relief! He was so knowledgeable and informative about my issue. Having a great staff also made my visit that much more comfortable for me.
Excellent professional Doctor. I would recommend to all.

Dr Was great. Very attentive!
The staff was absolutely amazing! They were very polite and made you feel very comfortable. The nurses were caring and shared input about their own experiences which assured me I was not alone in the acne department. Dr. Sherer was wonderful. A pleasure to talk to and he treated me very quickly and prescribed what he thought would be best for me. I also met the estethician Donna. She was fabulous and had an amazing patient to dr. Personality. I made an appointment with her for a facial and can't wait to go back. Hopefully I see an improvement on my face :).
Professional and quick. Small waiting room, I guess because you don't wait long.
The staff was helpful, competent, and friendly. Dr. Sherer was excellent; he performed a shave biopsy on an irregular mole on my back. The procedure was painless and he let me know exactly what he was doing. Couldn't ask for more (except a negative on the biopsy, of course!) I'm glad I chose this office.
Was thorough and quick! Nice experience.
I highly recommend Dr. Sherer. Very professional staff. No waiting at all, takes you in right away.
Personable and knowledgable. Friendly staff!

nice office, staff friendly He didn't seem particularly interested.
Pleasant man, got straight to the core of the problem, asked good questions, professional. Nice staff.
I felt very comfortable with the entire staff. I could ask questions easily and felt like Dr. Sherer was invested in me as a patient and wanted to guide me in the right direction. I had questions concerning tattoo removal and he was very honest, straight forward with me, and said he would look into something concerning a removal process. I was very impressed and felt very much taken care of
he seemed very rushed wasn't with me very long
Informative, professional, friendly, clean, comfortable!
It was great , I was seen and diagnosed in no time
It was a fantastic, painless experience. Great nurses, great office team, Doctor was fantastic and almost immediate when I was brought back in the room. Its been a while since I have had such a good experience.
I felt that he showed genuine concern for my issue. He took his time to evaluate and try to diagnose my problem so he could treat it in the most effective way possible.
Pretty good, I would recommend.
I was very pleased and relaxed. He answered my questions and most of all I didn't feel rushed! I would recommend him in a minute! Thank you ZocDoc for all your help it went well. LaWayne
Dr. Sherer is an amazing doctor. Unlike other dermatologists he doesn't prescribe just any topical medicine. I highly recommend him, he was the first to get my skin clear.
Very good staff, made you feel at ease. Great service, very friendly.

I liked the nurse very much, she was kind and understanding. I also did like Dr. Sherer. He was kind and professional and very thorough. I felt he was a bit rushed, however, he did answer the few questions I had.
Everyone in the office was very informative and thorough.
