Dr. Sherman was phenomenal! I went for a second opinion on my cataracts (super uncommon for 33yr old). He explained everything very, very comprehensively. He also gave me great comfort that my forthcoming surgery will go well, and I've decided to have my surgery done by him. Very highly recommended!!

CON ARTISTS! Be careful what you sign, they fail to mention that they are heavily charging you for things, and give you phony services that you don't ask for. I went in for a vision test to renew my drivers license, and they failed to mention that they would be dilating my eyes, and that I wouldn't be able to see for 4 hours. He offered me "reverse" drops which he claimed "wont hurt at all" but it felt like acid was being poured into my eyeballs. Stay away from here. What a horrible nightmare of an experience. Receptionists are also miserable and nasty, I hope they read this and get an attitude adjustment.

I needed lots of baseline tests today since it was my first visit with Dr. Sherman. Dr. Sherman was very thorough and informative. His staff was really friendly and efficient, and despite the many tests I needed, I was in and out of there very quickly. My whole visit was terrific. Excellent front desk staff, too. The office was clean and comfortable.

For nearly 20 years, I'd been to a handful of different doctors and none of them could get my contact prescription to 20/20. In my first visit, Dr. Sherman changed my lense type and nailed the prescription. It felt like seeing a different world. Needless to say, I'll be thankful for the rest of my life.

My visit at Dr. Sherman's office was wonderful! I would highly recommend him to anyone. He was absolute professional and took the time to reply my questions. I did not wait more than 5 minutes to. He is an ophthalmologist that you can tryst 100% given his experience and competency. Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

The doctor was very nice but the people running the practice were rude. The copay higher than expected and there were additional fees. Practice will hold my daughter's RX hostage while we double check with our insurance company. My wish is that these hidden fees would be included on ZOC DOC, or if this is not possible, a phone call from the practice would help patients to make informed decisions before going to an appointment. I am furious and I will not go back to this practice.

Went for a basic, already diagnosed eye infection. His office under his direction did testing that was unnecessary to treat my condition. I had those same tests done 6 weeks ago at another doctor. Needless and expensive. Would not recommend this practice.

Visited Dr. Sherman for an emergency issue today. He and his staff are extraordinarily professional, kind and thorough. His office is quite nice, latest equipment, clean, etc. My case needed additional attention from a surgical specialist. Dr. Sherman was able to get me an appointment with him immediately. I also must note that Dr. Sherman is the best-dressed, most dapper doc on the Upper East Side! He's a great guy and a great doc - tons of experience - super knowledgeable - cant go wrong here...

I will never go back to this doctor. From the beginning he nor the receptionist would listen to a thing I said. Because I needed to return to my office after the optometrist, I specifically asked to NOT have my eyes dilated. Needless to say, not only did he dilate them, but did not warn or tell me so I could prevent it. I also went to the office for contact fittings, but they only gave me a glasses prescription and I had to take an extra trip back for another fitting. They do not listen!!

I just had my first appointment with Dr. Sherman, and I am very pleased with my experience. It has been two years since I've seen an ophthalmologist, and I went in for a general check-up. Dr. Sherman is very thorough and conscientious, and he quickly uncovered a few issues. His staff is also very professional, pleasant and friendly. I know my eyes are in good hands.

Dr. Sherman was straightforward & efficient, explaining each test before he performed it and talking me through the results. I was seen within a few minutes of arriving and the entire appointment (which was comprised of about six different eye tests) was over in 45 minutes (allowing for about 10-15 minutes for various drops to take effect). At the end he was reassuring and professional. I'd recommend him

Dr. Sherman is incredible. I made an emergency, same-day eye appointment and he took amazing care of me. His office has an impressive array of testing and diagnostic equipment and he did more tests than I ever knew existed. He was concerned about something else based on his exam of my eye and personally made calls to several other doctors to make sure that I would get the best care possible and that I would get that care right away. I cannot possible thank him enough. I very highly recommend him.

Dr. Sherman was fantastic! It was my first eye exam and he answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. His demeanor and attitude was very professional throughout the time there, I really felt like I was in good hands. The staff in the office was wonderful also - the people behind the desk were friendly and the assistants were knowledgeable and professional. For picking a doctor based off nothing but Zocdoc reviews, I think I made a great choice.
