The Doctor was compassionate and took the time to help us. He is very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail. His team was attentive and caring. It's a family practice and the level of care we experienced was very high. We are pleased with the level of professionalism and attention from his wife and the staff. The office facility was also very nice

Dr .Sher took good care of me when I had perforated appendicitis at hospital in April 2016. Then he did outstanding hernia repair for me at center for ambulatory surgery. I have had tree visits in his office. Dr. Sher is a very experienced and skilled surgeon. He treats patients with respect and kindness and made every effort to meet my need .I will go back to him for surgical care in the future and recommend him to my family, friends and other patients.

Dr. Sher was very professional and would highly recommend him. I had to have my gallbladder removed. When I went for consult with him I asked if he did hernias, I had an umbilical hernia that needed repair. He we'll go in through the belly button take out the gallbladder and repair the hernia on the way out. He was so down to earth and gave me confidence in him right away. The morning of the surgery he came by explained everything they were going to do and took care of it. Can't say enough.
