Verified Patient Reviews
Dr.Scher is an excellent surgeon as well as E.N.T. Dr. I have been going to him for 25 years. He is a kind and caring Dr. They schedule their appointments well. I have never waited long for my appointment.
Great and very through.
I was grateful he could squeeze me in so quickly. He was fast and thorough and reassuring. No problems with visit.
It was quick I am used to being evaluated longer but he seemed to know exactly what was going on with my ear so I am very satisfied.
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.
Dr. Natan is very knowledgeable and understanding. He is amazing . Thanks
It was my first visit with him....had a clogged left ear and could hardly hear..he was very pleasant and within 10 minutes he did his magic and was unclogged and hearing perfectly
Very personable and professional.
He is the best, highly recommended him.
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.
Very thorough with his diagnosis of my baby's ear infection. I now have a detailed plan to correct the problem.
Thought the office and doctor were very professional
Everything was extremely professional. Dr. Scher was extremely knowledgeable and treated my condition in an expert manner.
Literally did nothing for me and said that he seen nothing when the problem occurred again.
informative straightforward happy with the doctor
My visit was professional and precise. The doctor was pleasant and very capable. The service was quick and deliberate.
Dr Scher is the best ENT in the area.
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!!!
Great as usual.
Explained what he could. I need further testing.
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!
Dr. and staff very helpful.
My experience was wonderful, Dr.Scher did a thorough exam then prescribed medication to fix the problem. Within the hour I felt much better.
Very efficient visit. Doctor explained every thing well. Painless !! Recomend him all day long.
I would definetly visit Dr. Natan scher again. I was very pleased with the prompt service I received. Dr Scher was through and was able to immediately take care of my medical needs.
Even with a full waiting room, Dr. Scher gets you in and out in a quick and extremely proficient manner. The ladies behind the desk are knowledgable and friendly.
Very professional and knowledgeable...no complaints
Nice doctor! !!
Fast,efficient and solved my problem. If only all appointments were this good.
I think Dr. Scher is a very professional, caring doctor. My appointment was for 5pm and I saw him at 5:05pm. He listened to my concerns and took his time to address them. He was recommended to me by friends and I will recommend him to my friends.
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.
Dr Scher was very knowledgeable. He diagnosed my ear hearing situation and resolved it very quickly. He made recommendations for proactive treatment. I was very pleased & satisfied. His sense of humor helped me feel relaxed.
I'm glad I went
Dr.Scher is great and very knowledgeable!
very knowledgeable and honest to the point kind of Dr....will recommend him to anyone looking for a NET Dr.
Had a good initial consult and he got the ball rolling quickly to setup sleep study and nasal surgery so I can hopefully breath right again! Surgery was completed on the 19th and my follow-up is at 9:45 the 21st. Very satisfied so far!!
He was great!
He was very professional and had me diagnosed within 15 minutes! After seeing 3 other Urgent Care doctors, and none of them being able to give me an answer, I was highly impressed! Can't wait for my next appt. I have faith that Dr. Scher will get me fixed right up!
My whole experience was very positive. Staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Scher is excellent. He explained everything before did it and made me feel very relaxed as this was my first visit to a throat specialists. Would recommend him to everyone.
I'm sure he is a great doctor. He was able to diagnose my sons ear infection right away. Unfortunately, he seemed to have no interest in giving clarity into the reasons surrounding your illness.
He is one of the BEST.
Absolutely horrible. I will never return there! I don't know how this man still has a job! His receptionist and himself have no bedside manner and were so cold and did not consider concerns of the patient or even see them as a patient but more so a business transaction. I had to have a sinus surgery and I have been seeing a fantastic and professional doctor and feel 100 percent better. I would never recommend Dr. Scheur to anyone. My visits were a joke and waste of money. I am so grateful he did not perform my surgery!
I waited maybe 5min. to see the doctor. And Dr. Scher is wonderful.
Dr. Scher seemed thorough and knowledgeable.
He is very professional. He will be highly recommended.
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 each appointment, 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
Very professional and to the point.. Highly recommend ...
Amazing Doctor---very caring and helped me tremendously.
I was able to set an appointment on the short notice so I had no time to due further research on the Dr. Scher. I was pleased with the service and I did not have to wait at all.
Very efficient staff. Doctor right on time. Took time to explain the situation and what type of treatment program he will ask me to follow.
The nurses were very friendly. The doctor was not very friendly nor personable.
Dr. Scher is an amazing doctor and helped my son tremendously with his chronic ear infections. I HIGHLY recommend him!
Everything was great from the receptionist to the professionalism of the doctor.
It was a nice, helpful and informative visit..but, I needed something to prove my visit to doctor Natan, even if it seconds the other doctor report I showed him, but a report thats proves I had a second opinion from dr. Natan..also I paid cash, didn't even take a receipt..
I didn't even have to wait 10 min after filling out my paper work and the office staff is super on top of everything. The dr. didn't say much after the exam until he was done filling everything out but I would definitely go back!
One of the best experiences I've had at a Doctors office.
He is very professional and thorough!
Dr. Scher is a fantastic ENT! I would give his number to everyone!!!! He put tubes in my ears a year and a half ago.Every thing went fine!
it went ok if the medication works and my ear gets better than i would highly recommend him. Otherwise ill wait 2 see what happens next week when i see him
Great doctor, came to him for a second opinion and decided to stay with him rather than my old ENT. I'll be having surgery with him soon.
Bedside manner is dry. But I don't mind that. Seems very knowledgeable and took care of a sore throat I had had for 2 months that 2 doctors couldn't seem to get rid of. I like him.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
He was great!
Was very good, explained things fully
Thorough yet fast and competent.
Good as always.
He's a very nice, and knowledgeable doctor.
He was very professional and able to quickly figure out my health issue and provide a solution.
Very thorough and knowledgeable.
It was actually for my son, but the Dr. was really nice and explained everything in detail what was wrong with my son.
Knowledgeable doctor. Friendly. Made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Scher is not mean, but not nice, either. He is kind of dead pan. If you are looking for smiles and sunshine, this is not your guy! I was seen right away because I was prepared. I made my appt on line and gave my insurance info. I had my copay ready, in cash, and I had my paper work already filled out. I expected to be seen right away.
The visit was excellent.
Very knowledgable and professional. Polite and courtious
very professional and courteous------did NOT have to wait at all for my appointment which for me is very important.
He's a very straightforward doctor. Conversation was limited but very knowledgeable regarding sinus issues. The appointment hours are a little inconvenient for someone with a 9-5 job.
Dr. Scher was personable and had a good bedside manner. He was respectful and also spent some time actually giving me a thorough exam. His office requires upfront payment for your deductible so they may be an issue for some. His staff was pleasant too.
Dr Scher is a very professional doctor. I would highly recomend him. And Yes his bedside manner is the best. I have never had to wait in the waiting room long at all. I'm very happy I made the decision to go to Dr. Scher!
Dr. was very professional but I got there early and the assistant seemed very perturbed that I'd interrupted her lunch. It rubbed me the wrong way.
Dr. Scher is extremly knowledgable about his practice and would highly recommend to anyone with problems related to what he treats
I didn't have to wait too long to be seen by the doctor. You do have to ask a lot of questions as this doctors doesn't seem to say much. He is very knowledgeable when asked the right questions about your particular condition. For me, coming here was very convenient as it is on my way to work.
A little early to tell. I have some test to do and I will know then.
He came highly recommended from a friend who was an associate of his. I find him to be too few on words. You have to ask him alot of questions, he doesn't offer much information. His hours for a working person are hard to manage. I always have to take off work to go see him. While he is good about ordering further testing, the findings/reports for tests done rarely seem to get to him before the appointment time, so he was reading thru them while I was sitting there. He was circling items in my report, so it appeared it was the first time he had seen them. he comes highly recommended in his field so I "deal with" the annoyances.
Very good doc
I was very impressed with Dr. Scher. I need to have surgery and I know that I am in very skilled hands.
Dr. Scher was a very pleasant, knowledgeable physician. I am glad I went to see him because he came up with a possible condition that perhaps could be part of my problem. I rarely travel to Tinley Park so that is my only concern - and usually have all my tests done out of a different facility - but I would highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Scher.
the doctor was very professional and knowledgeable of my condition. My only problem is debit/credit cards are not accepted.
I wish the doctor would have let me explain more of what was going on with me. I felt a bit rushed. I want a doctor to listen to what I have to say even if it goes over my 10 minute allowance for time.
Cold atmosphere - beginning with receptionist
He knew exactly what he was doing, but make sure you ask questions
I needed to find a doctor right away and found Dr. Scher. He was very professional. There was not a long wait either
Should mention that they only accept cash and check prior to appointment.
not overly impressed
It was great!!!
Dr. Scher was very calming and funny. Very direct and to the point.
God pluss you doctor and thank you
Dr. Scher is a really good doctor. I would highly recommend him!
Really appreciated the ease of scheduling:)
Very professional and very quick
I have been seeing him for years. He is a great doctor.
I'm not sure if he was being rushed, but he seemed as if he was a bit upset about something when I went to see him. There were questionable sanitary issues from what I saw as well. The staff was friendly at least.
Dr. Scher in my view, is ok at best. Seemed like he looked at my insurance card longer then me. He did not ask me if I felt any discomfort or signs/symptoms. He may be a good doctor, but I could not tell from my expierence.
Dr. Scher is very professional, nice, and knowledgeable. I don't have any complaints!
Dr Scher is an ultimate professional with a great and calming bedside manner. His staff is friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this physician. My last appointment with him was 7 years ago and he remembered me and my family.
