Dr. Sher is an excellent doctor. She spends a lot of time asking questions and getting to know our son and explaining how he is growing. We have had a lot of problems getting refills with the ridiculous people at the pharmacy and we just call her office and the amazing Heather fixes everything up for us.

Our child has been seeing Dr. Sher since 2006. She is one of the most kind and caring physicians we have ever known. Would recommend her to anyone and wish her practice was not restricted to children. WONDERFUL!

Dr. Sher was absolutely amazing! Today was my son's first visit to evaluate his growth. Dr. Sher spent an hour with us carefully reviewing his entire health history and explaining his prognosis. She was very personable, kind and considerate. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sher to anyone who is looking for a pediatric endocrinologist!

Dr Sher was warm, caring and spent a lot of time talking to me and my 12 year old daughter. She explained everything in a clear and easily understandable way for my daughter could understand what was going on. Highly recommend her!!

When first referred to Dr.Sher by a doctor i trusted, I looked her up..found many bad reviews so i was hesitant... but went anyway. from scheduling issues to the way the doctor treated us in the exam room... icy and very terse bedside manner. my 13 yr old son isnt growing well and is distraught. when she told me she wanted us to come back in 4mo. without clearly stating they would do bloodwork first... I said why? instead of explaining, she said you are welcome to seek another dr... rude!
