Dr. Sherer is great, his office unfortunately seems chaotic and unorganized. Was not able to handle basic tasks such as sending a prescription over.

Dr. Sherer is an excellent doctor, there is no doubt about that. If you are looking for a doctor that has a lot of knowledge and will be able to help you, he is the guy for the job. However, Ido think there are some things that could be improved. He does not have a warm approach or reassuring, more of an intellectual certainty. This allows him to be on time and have you never waiting, so make of that what you will. My only real complaint is how the office runs, which may be the doctors choice or not. But if you are more than 5 minutes late, you either have to reschedule for another time in the day or be fined for canceling on them. I understand and agree with these precautions because it keeps the office running as smoothly as possible which you will greatly benefit from. But it can be irritating when you keep all your appointments for months and the one time you are late, you end up in this situation, which is unfair to do on loyal patients.

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.

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 myconcerns. It was also a bonus that everyone in the office was friendly and the wait time was very efficient!

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 leasta 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.

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.
