My husband didn't have a chance to even meet the Dr so I can't give him a review. The staff he has working for him needs to be more efficient. The appointment was made weeks ago and when my husband goes in today, he waits for almost 2 hrs. Then the staff tell him that he never had an appointment in the first place. So ridiculous!!! Then they ask me who i spoke with?? Who writes down who they spoke with when making a dr's appt???

Been a patient of Dr. Schertzer for 20 years. He & his staff are caring people, with the primary focus ALWAYS being the patient. Helping people live healthy lives is why he practices family medicine, and his staff will try their best to know you & your needs. FYI - If you are looking for an indication of how he treats people, just look at his staff. They NEVER leave, unless they move away from South Florida. He treats them as extended family, and in return they emulate his caring attitude.

Looking back on my approximately 15 year with Dr. Schertzer, i could not be more satisfied.The very first encounter set the tone. My blood work showed borderline cholesterol. Instead of putting me on a drug, he instead encouraged me to change my lifestyle by exercise and diet. He gave me a print out of diet options. I implemented his recommendations, and three months later there was improvement. He has shown that my good health is his priority. Folks he is a keeper. No changing for me. Hugh

Dr. S saved my son's life. My son has epilepsy The pediatric neurologist was poorly treating my son. They almost poisoned him. my friend recommend Dr. S and we made an apt. In the first visit he found that my son had tons of issues due to the pills the Neurologist was giving him. We were able to get him the correct help he needed to get better. Nowadays, the health system is a business and not too many doctors care about the patients, they care about the $$$. Dr. S cares about his patients.

Dr schertzer is one of the greatest and most experienced doctors I've met since moving to Florida I recommend him and his staff to everyone .

The Dr himself is very nice, but is staff is not consistent. Often very cold and short on the phone and the waits are ridiculous. You go into a room pretty fast, but then you sit there for 45-mins to an hour! Also, usually every problem is just reffered out to a specialist. It is not the type of place where you feel very cared for. It's just ok......

Dr schertzers patient for 22 years. Takes a interest in you and your concerns. Good bedside manner. Moved 2 years ago and now traveling 80 miles RT to go to his office. but worth the drive.

was prescribed a medication in December that requires a prior authorization ... i have received the run around being told that they cannot get it and it wouldnt be covered anyway ....well after having my insurance on the phone with them and yes guys i was listening it was proven to you that it is covered and we are almost in april ... my next cholesterol draw is in may .... so like i said the doctor is good but the office staff needs a lot of work to solve the surly demeanor
He cares about you as a patient, but the wait times are very long. I've gone to his office several times and will no longer go back. I can't wait 45 minutes in the lobby only to feel forgotten about in the room. 1/5

I am a RN and finding a Family Practice or Internist has been a nightmare until I met Dr. Schertzer. He is kind and knowledgeable. HIs PA, Patrice, is wonderful as well. His DON, Mary, has been working their for 15 years... They will all go over and above to make you feel comfortable. Krystal is in the front with Jasmelle and every time I see them, they have a smile. I felt the need to write my experience with Dr. Schertzer and his amazing team. Thank you Dr. Schertzer. Sharon P.
