      Yes, I would definitely recommend Dr. Sher. During my check up he found that I had bladder cancer. He did surgery, and completely removed two tumors. Nine months later, I am still cancer free. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, takes his time, and explains things thoroughly.

      I had had an episode of gross hematuria and contacted Dr. Sher, my urologist. I came in for a CT scan last week , and today for a cystoscopy. From this procedure, Dr. Sher and his assistant Janet M. were able to see some growths on my bladder wall. He discussed with me the suspected meaning of these growths, and recommended a follow up procedure in the hospital to have them removed. Knowing that I had had 4 cardiac stents put in last summer, he wanted to get the approval from my cardiologist to temporarily stop my blood thinner prior to having this procedure. I found Dr. Sher extremely professional, and knowledgeable. His assistant had informed me in advance of the cystoscopy, exactly what was going to happen and what to expect. I highly recommend both Dr. Sher and Janet M.

      I really like Dr Sher and was impressed with his knowledge. But that office staff!! They are very impolite, unprofessional, and unorganized. The whole time I was waiting, The receptionist’s window was never closed and I could hear them discussing patient’s issues, etc. - so much for patient confidentiality. I hope that Dr Sher will address these issues with his staff. The 5 star rating is for Dr Sher - not the office staff.

      Dr. Sher did a amazing job explaining the procedure, and made sure I was well educated in what to expect following it. He also personally called me with the results, for which I was very grateful. That being said, his staff is not very polite, or professional (at one point they actually hung up on my wife while she was attempting to make my next appointment). The lack communication skills among themselves, make them seem extremely unorganized. His staff is the only reason I'm given a low score.

      I am not one to complain, however, I am very concerned about the "nursing staff" at the Leesburg office and their lack of experience, professionalism, friendliness, and compassion, not to mention the lack of sanitary precautions taken in the procedure room! It's quite unsettling to walk into the room where the procedure chair was not cleaned up after the last patient!! Come on doctors...don't let the inexperienced ruin your reputation and business you worked so hard for!
