I have been a patient of Dr Sam Lerman for years! He schedules and sees his patients on time and spends quality time trying to improve the quality of your life. He is a very dedicated Endocrinologist and I am proud to say he is my Doctor!

I have been a going to Dr. Lerman's office for over 10yrs., and he is okay; very knowledgeable and experienced, but the wait time is long. I started going to his PA Sharon and I get in and out. The only problem is with some of the office staff. They are rude, inconsiderate and never organized. Cant get a message to anyone, and cant anyone to call you back. They all seem overworked and underpaid and therefore it shows in the way they treat the patients.

I have Type1 Diabetes and searched high and low for an endocrinologist that really understood how to treat my disease, until I found Dr. Lerman. He's a great doctor with great bedside manners and the right experience. I've already told him he cannot retire!
in Davie, FL |
Dr. Lerman always takes the extra time to ensure your visit and your treatment is a priority. He wants to make sure you understand your treatment protocol and you feel comfortable about what your plan of action is going forward. Anything you do not understand he is willing to take the extra time to explain.

Dr. Lerman has been my endocrinologist for over 20 years and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone. He is extremely competent, always patient and answers all of your questions. He goes beyond the normal physician's duties and really cares about his patient's health and any concerns you may have. I only wish there were more doctors like Dr. Lerman.
in Hollywood, FL |
Dr. Lerman is the BEST endocrinologist that I have ever had. I've had a total of 4 endocrinologists throughout my diabetic life. Lerman is by far the most thorough and attentive one I've worked with. Very knowledgeable and he actually cares! He cares about his work and about you, which makes him an EXCELLENT doctor. I would HIGHLY recommend to all, without any hesitation!

Dr Lerman is a fine doctor. I have been seeing him for many years. He takes his time with patients and explaines everything.. I definitely would recommend him to family and friends.
in Jensen Beach, FL |
Dr. Lerman is always very thorough, allows all questions to be asked/answered, and never rushes the exam. He is always on time for my appointments.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Lerman is always there to help me and listen to anything I need help with. I have been going to him for over 18 years and always shows a big interest in how I feel and helps me keep my sugars under control. When I need a script sent to the pharmacy his girl Jessie is always very helpful(this is very important).I have recommended many people to go see him and they are also very pleased.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Lerman is very thorough, he listens and is very knowledgeable in his field. I have been a patient of his for many years.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I have received first class treatment from Dr. Lerman for 20 years and find him completely competent, caring and engaged. He is the type of Doctor that other doctor's should aspire to.
in Hollywood, FL |
I would never recommend Sam Lerman to anyone I cared about. All of my ongoing complaints and symptoms were either ignored, or arrogantly dismissed. My quality of life was awful, until I took matters into my own hands and demanded that he switch my medication, after YEARS of having bad side effects. I finally found an endocrinologist who validated my symptoms and who is clearly more educated in the field (50 years practicing) Do yourself a favor and avoid him.
in Hollywood, FL |
A Doctor who cares, I trust and listen to. The staff are polite, caring and respectful. The lab nurses are great, never a problem drawing blood. My wife had a problem with her heart beat {in our last visit} and without any hesitation he ordered an EKG test in his office got the result quickly and recommended her to see a cardiologist. I like the new location easy parking
