      Dr. Scherl seems to be a well intentioned doctor. However, she is so overloaded with patients and has a particularly incompetent and undertrained staff (a PA who needs to be educated on basics of physiology and pharmacology, nursing staff turnover, surley office staff), and inefficient office practices that it has made it nearly impossible to establish a productive doctor patient relationship. As a healthcare provider myself, I consider this to be the epitome of bad healthcare delivery.

      Dr. Scherl saved my husbands life and gave us back a quality of life we had not known for years due to Crohns disease. She is brilliant and she considers the entire patient and the family in all decisions. We are blessed to have found her. She is incredibly busy as she is one of the best in the world (literally!) and you sometimes wait a bit but it is so worth it.We sincerely recommend her and her entire team.She is caring and definitive about your care and the results are astounding.

      I have and will continue to recommend Dr Scherl to my family and friends. She's is compassionate, spends the time and takes a comprehensive approach to complex problems. She is a leader in the field of CRohns and Colitis

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
