Patient Comments (5)
Awful experience. The front desk staff is not helpful and couldn't answer simple questions. Dr. Sherling made little effort to listen to what my symptoms have been, the duration of my symptoms, or connecting the dots of what I was telling her. She was condescending and had terrible bedside manner. She gave poor advice, failed to conduct the appropriate diagnostic tests, and did not provide a treatment plan. The office nurse was also was condescending. Would not recommend Dr. Sherling to anyone.

After numerous visits, all but begging for help, I'm done. No engagement, just 2 minutes with her staring at her laptop. No better than when I started. Discussing medications with her, she just seems confused, asking me to repeat myself again and again, only to discover that scripts are incorrect. Done.

Terrible experience !!!!! She came to the office and never look at me, all the time she was looking at the laptop she brought with her. She didn't ask any questions, let me Do the talk, Rush me the 2 minutes she spent with me and gave me a poor, wrong diagnostic. She didn't even touch me ! Or look closer ! All the time she look at the computer and typed, maybe she was trying to get the answer to my problem on Google. She didn't asked any questions or answer any of my concerns. She is the worst!

Dr. Sherling rushed through my entire office visit. I needed a PCP closer to home, so made an appointment for annual exam. I even explained to Dr. Sherling that I was seeking a new PCP, and that I had a few other issues I wanted to discuss. She didn't seem to care, she didn't ask me any questions, and she didn't seem to want or need any new patients.
I've been a patient of Dr. Sherling for over a year. I find her knowledgeable, a good listener, and very pleasant.
