Dr Long has been my doctor for 30 years. Dr Long always listens with empathy and compassion. She is clear on why she recommends a certain treatment plan or continues to monitor a condition. She does not rush and you feel heard which is rare in today’s Health care system. I appreciate her and highly recommend her.

Dr. Long always is prepared for any interaction I have with her. She knows and understands all my medical history and is completely thorough in asking questions and providing advice and medical direction to me. My only concern is that she will retire some day and won't be my doctor anymore.

Over the past 67 years I have seen many doctors for various reasons. I have yet to find a doctor as caring as Dr. Long. She knows me and is honestly concerned and wants the best for my overall health. I wish there was a world full of doctors like her!!!

Dr. Long is a tremendous doctor. She's extremely smart and very patient and empathetic, showing genuine care for her patients and real excitement about her job. She's eager to share her knowledge and expertise and really takes her time answering questions and explaining concepts. Because she seems to spend as much time as it takes for each patient to feel seen, heard, and satisfied, she sometimes runs a bit behind schedule, but I see this as a small price to pay for the highest quality of care. I've recommended her to many friends and will continue to do so.

I am quite convinced that there could not be any doctor better than Dr. Sheryl Long. She remembers/reviews all of my history before she steps in the office door each time. She gives me all the facts, good and bad, to make the best health decisions. She is completely current with medical studies, and covers everything during ohysicals. Years ago she was listening to my breathing with a stethoscope, and noticed one of my thousands of freckles on my back looked funny. She immediately biopsied it, and found I had stage 2 melanoma. If I ever moved, I would fly in for exams. She is that good

Dr Long has been my physician for over 20 years. She is always knowledgeable, thorough and kind. She listens to my concerns and questions, and always has my best interests in mind. I am a 64 year old soccer player, and when others might recommend hanging up the cleats, she encourages me to continue doing what I love. I am so lucky to have Dr. Long as my personal physician:
