Dr. Sherman and his staff were all very personable, caring and professional. Dr. Sherman gave me a new hip and the surgery went amazing! He is the man! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sherman for your surgery. Well worth the trip from wherever you may live to have Dr. Sherman do your surgery.

Review for Dr. Christopher Sherman, DO

He’s been very good to my Mother and I for the last 5 years or so. I would not change cardiologists because of his dedication to helping us with our heart conditions.

He is very professional, highly-skilled, and keeps up with the latest in cardiology. He is also very caring, extending himself to make sure his patients understand what is doing and why they need to take that procedures he has recommended. I recommend him above any other cardiologist I know of.

The worst ever. To Make long story short. He said im a neurosurgeon, I only treat people that can walk less than a block and need surgery. So unless You really need surgery don't even waste Your time. I would never let a guy like this practice on Me.
