He's very knowledgeable, kind, caring and compassionate. It's hard to find doctors like Dr. Sherrer. I hope he doesn't retire anytime soon!

Poor customer service by staff within the Ooltewah office. They lost my son's medical records. When trying to complete an immunization form for school, they asked us to come back with our personal copies. They will use those to replace lost records & complete school form. We returned with copies and was directed to Health Department to have forms completed. Found out nurse Jess didn't know how to complete the simple form...or didn't want to. Very unprofessional; we are leaving the office.
