in Hazlet, NJ |
Dr. Scher is probably the best doctor I've ever been to. Not only does he answer any and all questions I have, he spends as much time as I need and also is happy to discuss any issues I bring to him. We've often discussed current medical options and he routinely calls me to follow up. I find him to be caring, engaged and thorough, with a great sense of humor. Any time I mention his name to a nurse, they always beam and say how much they like him. I can see why.

Dr. Scher has been treating my mom for Ovarian Cancer since 2010. She is on her third battle against this disease. He has been open, honest, caring, and friendly through it all. He is attentive to her needs and meticulously monitors all of her blood count levels weekly. I highly recommend him and the staff to any person afflicted with Cancer. He is truly a God send.

I have cancer and could be a nervous wreck, but Dr. Scher explains everything openly and honestly. I could not ask for anything more from a doctor.
