Patient Comments (1)
Dr. Shermer is always very thorough in checking lab work and in explaining every aspect of my condition. I have full confidence in his ability in nephrology. He also consults with other physicians to coordinate care, and I find him to be a very caring physician. My only concern is a lack of ability to get a telephoned question through to him for his opinion on a given situation between appointments.
