The most caring, compassionate, loving and professional doctor that I have ever experienced. He takes time for you and makes you feel like you are his only patient. He is so thorough and he listens and he cares about you. Not only is he amazing, his staff is outstanding! Julie, Ann, Elsa and Olga are all wonderful. I can’t say enough great things about Dr Schermerhorn and his staff. I wish all doctors could be like him. They truly are the best!

Dr. Schermerhorn is by far the best physician I have ever seen! I had complications during my pregnancy and it was very comforting to know that I had a doctor that truly cared and was extremely knowledgable.

I was referred to Dr. Schermerhorn by my PCP and I loved him!! His bedside manner is wonderful and he explains everything in great detail. He referred me to my oncologist and still continued to followup to see how I was doing.

This man is by far the best doctor i have ever seen in the medical field. He helped me to become comfortable when having to go in for checkups , etc. He was my gynecologist through both of my pregnancies. He successfully delivered both of my healthy and beautiful babies. I first heard of him through my mother in law. she sees him as well. One of the best things about seeing Schermerhorn as my doctor is that he is the same doctor who delivered my husband ( my kids dad) and his sister ( kids aunt)

Incredible. Best gyno and around! He has helped me medically with complex problems that doctors of their own specialty or ER didn't take time to understand what was going on ... He has helped me significantly with related problems solving severe menstrual pain and bleeding that was out of control for over 10 years. I have worked with over 25 doctors in my life—he is in the top 3! Elsa at the front desk is a star too! They are understanding too when you need to make pay arrangements. Love them!

THE BEST OBG/YN DOCTOR IN THE DFW AREA AND HIS STAFF. He shows so much care and attention. Yes, he has other patients but he makes you feel like you are his most important one. As first-time Mother and Father you want a Doctor who understands your anxiety going thru pregnancy to birth. But he also very frank with a dash of comfort and compassion when difficult choices and decisions do arise. I hope he will be around for my second child. And I wish he would be around for my daughter as a mom.
