Dr. Schertz was nice. Only spent 10 minutes with the Dr. I didn't care for the young office assistant. I felt that she was less than pleasant and a little abrasive.

After a long battle with sinus problems, I decided it was finally time to see a specialist. Unfortunately, this was one of the worst experiences I've ever had in a doctor's office. The appointment was rushed, unprofessional, and unproductive. As I entered the room the doctor was very hesitant to answer any of my questions and left the room twice to get materials from another room, leaving the door opened with me viewing the waiting room. After looking at my nose, I was told to be quiet so he could write notes and recommend that I see two additional specialists. He then attempted to rush me out of the room without giving me a prescription for the current sinus infection I have. After asking, for the prescription I was given one with an opening of the door for me to leave.

Dr. Scher was very accommodating to my hectic schedule! He she his concern about the issue I had going on and wanted to find a solution fast. If I ever called with a question for Dr. Scher, he was quick to respond and even at times asked me to come in if possible so he can see that everything was ok. The staff at the front desk was also very helpful. I found out I needed a procedure done and both ladies were amazing at helping to take care of my insurance. Great doctor and staff!

I really like and appreciate the professionalism, coupled with the fact that Dr. Scher not only treats the condition in question; most importantly, he gets to the ''bottom'' of the cause. To me, this says it all. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I very much appreciated being able to get an appointment with Dr. Scher so quickly. I made the appointment on line and was in his office less than 24 hours later. Dr. Scher was very polite and .professional. I explained my problem and after a brief exam, he was able to satisfactorily treat me and painlessly resolve it. I left his office feeling much better and thankful for having seen this doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Scher, and if need be, would definitely see him again for any ENT issues. His assistant, a young woman, was also very professional and friendly. All in all, a very good experience.

Dr. Scher appears to be one of ''few'' words :). Though I sensed he is very kind, gentle and patient oriented. Nevertheless, I fully appreciate his overall bedside manner. He is VERY professional!!! I am thankful that he ordered a test to determine what is REALLY going on, and the reason for ear pain. This means a lot to know that he is not merely treating the symptoms, but rather the cause!

He performed a much-needed tonsillectomy and recovery was a breeze. It was nothing like the horror stories I read online and now I only get sick very rarely.
