    He's the most compassionate human being I've ever had the honor of knowing. Always professional and thorough, never rushing through treatments. I can't express enough how grateful I am to him.

    Although there is a fairly long wait time, Dr. Scharper is well worth that wait. He takes his time and doesn't rush through any procedures. He is meticulous. And on top of that he is a compassionate person.
