After moving to FL and unsatisfactorily trying different primary care doctors, my cardiologist recommended Dr. Schertzer. My initial visit was excellent. Short wait. He is a very thorough but caring physician. He listens well and gives you time to go over any problems you may have. The office staff was pleasant and efficient. I was given all necessary referrals and feel very comfortable with Dr. Schertzer as my primary care doctor.

I was on the lookout for a PCP close to my home. I went on line and found Dr. Schertzer. I was not only pleased with this doctor but will refer him to my entire community. He was knowledgeable, painstaking, thorough to the core and caring. Some of the reviews on line reflected some problems with his office, I would NOT agree with any of them. His office staff is courteous and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Schertzer. Highly being the operative word here.

a pt of MD for 3 years with an occasional wellness visit until now. I had not noticed before the severe incompetencies & transparency until I needed clearance for surgery. They appear to help but at a cost, also, labs missing & wrong PT info sent out. I was charge d $200 for office visits, EKG, and to make an appoint with another MD. I had to ask for an outline of chargers and a receipt, response “do you need it”. I did not quite understand the charges, I paid due urgency. I have reported them.

My husband and I have been a patient of Dr Schertzer for over 20 years. Two years ago when I was out of the country, my husband went to see him because he felt that there was something wrong with his heart. To make the long story short, Dr Schertzer saved my husband's life. He was having an acute atrial fibrillation. He was sent to ER and cardioverted the following day. We are so grateful of Dr Schertzer. Now my husband is stable and continue taking his heart medication for a fib prevention.

The performance of the office staff and office manager demonstrates severe incompetence. My husband surgery could have been canceled due to their errors. They called the hospital and said, the cardiologist did not clear my husband. It turned out they had the wrong info. and waisted our time. Also, he was sent to the wrong place to get his labs drawn. He ended up in the ER to expedite getting his surgery. When I spoke to the manager her response, ” I don't know, call the MD”. But that is the gene

If possible I would leave negative stars. I waited 2 months to see a specialist referred by this practice and called 2 weeks in advance to have my medical records faxed. Get to the appointment only to find out it never got FAXED! I paid out of pocket both times and because of this office’s lunch hour I can’t get a hold of anyone to fax what is needed. DO NOT GO HERE! Completely incompetent and a waste of money.
