What People Say About Dr. Sherman Cole, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Cole has very little knowledge of psychiatry, at least from what I’ve seen. The medicines he prescribed me caused me to have serotonin syndrome, and when I asked him about my symptoms (which were quite painful and, in some cases, debilitating), he told me to wait it out for another month. Serotonin syndrome can be deadly if not treated, and the fact that a nurse practitioner I went to a week later could figure out what I had before a licensed psychiatrist shows just how horrible Dr. Cole is. Not to mention, he is not very empathetic, and does not have any sense of people skills. I wouldn’t refer him to my worst enemy.

Dr. Cole takes his time and listens to all of my problems, and then he spends as much time as is needed to find out the best way to help me. He doesn’t rush me out after ten or fifth teen minutes, he takes as much time as he needs.

At first i wasn't sure abt Dr. Cole, and my sister who put it into perspective for me. He's a psychiatrist. He's not their to be warm and fuzzy, if you want that go to a therapist. He's got to ask some hard questions to determine what's going on and a diagnosis. I was on quite a few meds, and he looked at me and said they don't seem to be helping so why are you still taking them? Sense then I have gained a whole new respect for Dr. Cole. He is the only psych who has ever done ne thing for me.

Over an 8 day stay he saw me for a very short time each day. He at times did not look at me as he mumbled. I could not understand him, He never contacted my family about my progress. The Rx He gave me when I went home was not needed, and a few days later one of his associates changed it. Even my pharmacist questioned why I was given his Rx. I would not see him again.

He saw my Dad as an inpatient for 2 weeks. He had been admitted for paranoia and agitation after having been seen by another doctor in has practice. His meds were changed the day he was released to a nursing home, which the nursing home dr said was inexcusable. It was nearly impossible to talk to Dr. Cole, I tried to reach him many times during the hospital stay, but I didn't hear from him until the day he was released. This is inexcusable. My dad died two months later.

Do not let anyone you care about go to this Dr. He does NOT respond to patient needs or calls. Most recent issue, I left 5 messages with problems about prescription. No one from Dr. Cole's office ever returned my call. Ever.
