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.

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.

It was easy to get in and see Dr. Scher, which was great. My initial consult was also good, and I ended up having surgery with him for deviated septum/nasal polyp removal, but his bedside manner got progressively worse with eachappointment, especially the follow-ups post-op. Honestly, he seemed disinterested in my well being, and wouldn't effectively answer my questions/concerns post-op. A little over a year later now, and I am still suffering from sinus issues... I am now seeing a different ENT, to check on those concerns I had that Dr. Scher would not address, as well as some new ones

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 torespond 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 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 myproblem 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 testto 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!
