Patient Comments (3)

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 awesome. He listens and cares about his patients. Takes time to discuss issues and options and is current with latest information and procedures. Best urologist in town!

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
