Dr. Sher is a very caring and compassionate doctor. I met him when he treated my mother on a emergency basis at Beth Israel Hospital in Brooklyn. I decided to change doctors and chose him. He is easy to talk to and has answers. I highly recommend him.

During my recent visit with Dr. Sher, he was his usual self--approachable, well-mannered, respectful, and compassionate. I've been one of Dr. Sher's satisfied patients for more than ten (10) years. He's always taken time to listen and communicatehonestly with me. To summarize: Before there was a doctor like Dr. Oz; there was and still is -- The One and Only DR. SHER.

Dr.Sher was very gentle and thorough but his staff is horrible. I called in regards to a simple inquire about the address and the receptionist was frustrated because she was unaware that zocdoc made an appointment. The tech did not takeadequate weight and if Dr. She wasn't so attentive the review would be worst. Poor telephone etiquette and dire need of modernization.....will not return for a follow up.

The doctor and his staff were kind, professional, and welcoming. I didn't feel awkward or self concious like I tend to get when seeing new doctor. My testing went by quick and my consultation with the doctor was very insightful. Would definitely recommend this office.
