I appreciate and trust Dr. Sher very much for his decency, the care he takes, and his medical expertise. He is highly competent, answers my questions directly and completely, and is sensitive to my non-urological medical issues. He is extremely thorough in his testing. A few years ago he recommended that I start a course of preventive medication designed to anticipate my prostate becoming enlarged, a condition that would have eventually required surgery. I took his advice and am glad I did.

Dr. Sher is an excellent physician. I have been a regular patient of his for over ten years and am extremely happy with the care he has given me. Besides being a top notch urologist and surgeon, he is caring and thorough, always listens, and possesses a large dose of common sense and humor. He has performed several procedures on me, most recently a Urolift to treat my BPH, and the results were excellent. I am off Tamsulosin and all my symptoms have improved. I highly recommend Dr. Sher.

I first saw Dr. Sher in December of 2014 for a total urinary blockage due to an enlarged prostate (BPH) condition. He left no stone upturned to do appropriate testing for a correct diagnosis. He was able to treat my condition with medications and avoiding the traditional surgical options available. I have since retired to Florida but will continue to travel to Rockville, MD and use him for my 6 month monitoring checkups. What more can I say, he's the best!!

Dr. Sher's attention to detail led to early diagnosis of my kidney cancer for which I am most grateful. He caught the nuances of my complaints related to a UTI and suggested screening that led to the diagnosis. Just the kind of doctor you want on your side!

Doctor Robert Sher has a very brusque manner. He was borderline rude twice in speaking to this patient. He may have done his job 50000 times but should realize the patient has not heard this bad news before and should be more considerate and less cut and dried. I would never go to him again and would certainly advise a patient to seek a second opinon as I have done.

Dr Sher is the quintessential medical professional anywhere. First and foremost, he is highly competent, and a long time veteran of his field. Everyone I have personally spoken with shares this exact same opinion. Dr Sher spends time getting to know not only his patient's issues, yet also the patient as a person. He listens carefully, and does not rush his consultations. I highly reccomend Dr Sher
