I have been Dr. Shergy's patient for almost seven years. I started out with the clinical trials and he found the exact medication that works for me. He is knowledgeable and always answers my questions with thoroughness. I never have to wait for my appointments, and his nurse, Debra is so gentle when taking my vitals. Both Dr. Shergy and Debra, his nurse make me comfortable and provide me with the upmost attention, provide me with options, and listen to all my needs. They are the best!

I have seen Dr. Shergy three times over two years. He was very professional & courteous. He suggested ways to improve my health without judgment for my super-morbid obesity. The tests that he recommended were reasonable. The staff has been very professional & courteous too. I would have no hesitation about recommending Dr. Shergy.

Made me say I had bad bones. Only would let me use one thing to help the one area that actually even had the osteoporosis. That med he gave me gave me severe leg pain for 6 months. I had to use narco for the pain.

I have been going to him for several years and I have found him to be an excellent doctor. Through his treatment my arthritis is in remission and I am doing better. He always listens to me and is responsive to my needs. I would recommend him to anyone that is suffering from arthritis.

Never taken me seriously, yelled in my face because he was mad about my lab results, won't spend more than 3 minutes with you. Horrible. I'm done with him.
in Owens Cross Roads, AL |
Supposed to have prolia shot in April. Staff lost insurance info and therefore precertification was May 11. Had prolia shot over a month later on June 13. Shergy would NOT accept fault. Very disappointed in his lack of professionalism and accountability.
in Huntsville, AL |
Didn't seem to listen, felt my condition was not taken seriously, wouldn't try alternative meds or treatments.
