    Find another Doctor. Dr. Schertzer's surgery left me with cronic pain that feels like a structural problem. I have been in and out of pain centers and emergency rooms and 18 months later I cannot get it resolved. Also had a friend who she did surgery on with same problems. Had to have another surgery to correct problems.

    Read all the low ratings given Dr. Schertzer AFTER experiencing her working with me while I was deciding what to do about my diverticulitis; during pre-op preparations; during my post-op stay at Northside Hospital and, finally, during the 6 weeks following my surgery. I could not ask for a more competent, candid, or caring surgeon to work on me and work with me through my procedure. If you are looking for competence and results, contact Dr. Schertzer.

    Always in a hurry, does not spend enough time with patients. Once she left the room without warning when I still had a question; when I told the nurse I had a question, she said "Go pay, and I'll ask her for you and meet you at the checkout desk." She scheduled a painful procedure for me and did not tell me that it would be without anesthesia; if I had known, at least I could have taken Atavan beforehand. I will never go back, nor recommend her to anyone. Not enough space here to tell more.

    In 2013 - - Office visit was good but after the colonoscopy she did not return to go over the result with me or even provide a report. I had to tell the nurse I want to speak with her. I had to catch her when she was on her way out with her purse in hand. She spoke briefly, no recommendation on care or address my concern in the office visit. 100% different than Dr. Ferguson's bedside manner I had in 2010. I am here to find another doctor for my 2016 colonoscopy procedure.
