The doctor saved my husband's life. He went in because of a cough. The doctor insisted on a chest xray which revealed a black spot. Upon further investigation we found he had fungal pneumonia. Because we caught this early he was treated and healed. This would probably have gone unnoticed and without treatment he might have died.

15 months of constant coughing with no relief from multiple specialists and medications was finally ended after a 45 minute Zoom telemedicine visit with Dr. Sher. He promptly diagnosed my problem and proposed a plan of treatment that has reduced my coughing by 80%. I am very grateful to have my life back! Thank you Dr. Sher!

Yes he is intelligent. Yes he is not easy to deal with because he believes he is always right. Yes his offices and one common washroom in full view of waiting area are old, outdated and dirty. Yes you are not allowed to correct him. Yes his staff seems miserable working for him. How I dreaded going there. He needs to retire and in the meantime get over himself. Yes, totally not recommended.

After more than 15 years and countless visits to various specialists in search of relief from a chronic cough, I was referred to Dr. Sher. He was the first doctor who was able to accurately diagnose and successfully treat my condition. I am forever grateful.

I have had a chronic cough for over 16 years and had not been able to find a reason or relief. At our first visit he listened and we developed a plan which had had a major impact on my cough. He asks many question, and is an amazing diagnostician. I am thankful to have his followup and continued support in controlling my symptoms. Thank you Dr Sher!!

Dr. Sher and his office personnel are simply the best. Wonderful bedside manner, highly personable, and soooo caring. This is a doctor who truly cares about your well-being and wants you to achieve excellent results. The office staff are friendly, as well, and know what they are doing. Communication between the doctor and office personnel is terrific, too. I've never had a single issue with any of them, and they offer virtual appointments now, too. I LOVE that, because it means I don't have to drive an hour or more, depending on traffic, for a brief follow-up visit. Also, Dr. Sher successfully eliminated a mysterious cough I'd had for eight years, and did so after only two visits. I'd had all the tests with all the specialists, and no one could figure it out, but Dr. Sher DID. I would recommend him to anyone. He works magic, pure and simple.

Highly recommend Dr. Sher. I have been going to this office for three years with my symptoms being so minimal compared to when I started. His staff are always friendly and easy to approach. Dr. Sher is thorough and easy to communicate too. My shots are only every 6 weeks now and I have to say much relief in not walking around with a runny nose and itchy eyes all the time. I rarely ever have those symptoms anymore and if I do they are short lived.

Most people do not know there is a cough specialist. I saw multiple doctors for 1 year before I was finally given Dr Sher's information. I saw Dr Sher and his nurse for one visit, was told what I had to do which was simply hydrating and special exercises and the cough that I had had for 1 year was gone in one day. Absolutely unbelievable and very much appreciated. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. O.J., June 2020

I did not feel welcome when I came in Dr. Sher’s office this morning for my allergy shot. First of all the girl at the front desk was not friendly. I had to pay a $154 bill without seeing the invoice. The nurse wouldn’t make my next allergy shot appointment. She said that I would have to call in to make it.

Simply put, Dr. Sherr is a genius. He solves medical mysteries with coughs and allergies. He has helped my daughter with both. I dont know what we would have done without him. We are very blessed to have his help.

Dr. Sher is Professional, knowledgeable and caring. I always try to get the best doctors and specialists for myself and especially my children and Dr. Sher in my opinion is one of the best around Tampa Bay. The office is organized mixed and seem to be on top of their game. Due to the Pandemic, I am now having my appointments over Zoom. The first one went smoothly and I will most definitely ask for another one. Obviously if I or my daughter were having breathing problems I would call the office and see what to do from there.

I suffered from severe environmental allergies my entire life. I did a round of allergy shots when I in junior high with no improvement. It wasn't until I was in my early 30s that I had to try again. Thankfully, I found Dr Sher. After the first year, I saw remarkable improvement. After seven years, my six months of miserable allergies every year, has been reduced to a few bad days here and there. Easily the best health decision I in my life. I cannot recommend Dr Sher highly enough.

I was really struggling with asthma. I didn't often get sick but when I did I was really sick. Since I have been taking allergy shots with Dr. Sher, I have not been sick. It is a process. It doesn't happen overnight. But it has really worked for me and I think it would work for you.

I've been a patient of Dr. Mandel Sher for many years. He diagnosed several conditions contributing to allergies and continual sinus infections that others did not. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sher and his great office staff. I drive about 45 minutes to see him and I'd glady drive much farther to get such great care! Thanks Dr. Sher and your team - you rock!
