We had a great experience with Dr. Sherman. My 90 year old mom fell and was nervous she broke something. He fit us in last minute on a snowy day. Dr Sherman and the entire staff were so friendly, warm and professional (despite it being late on a Friday afternoon). They took x-rays and explained everything clearly. We were in and out quickly with my mom’s mind at ease. ??
