Dr Scheer is fine, its his staff that is bad. Went to office to pay bill, after calling first to make sure someone was there that could take my payment. Lady behind the glass said she was not authorized to take my payment. Other two ladies were on the phone. One finally got off the phone, and was going to help me, other lady still on phone said NO she would take care of me when she got off the phone. No one at their office cares about the customer

He gave me several medications that gave me severe diarrhea and caused me to faint. Then he sent me to a neurologist, full screening, and stress test saying if it was his RX that caused the problem, he would be the first to own up. The doctors looked at what he prescribed and said that was a listed side effect in some people. When I came back, even with my file in front of him, he suggested some of those same meds again. Eventually he said I should be happy to get a total 6-8 in 2 hr pieces.
