Dr. Sherman did my knee replacement last year. I recovered so well with no complications and very little pain. He will be replacing my other knee soon. I highly recommend Dr Sherman

He has replaced both of my hips. The most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever met. Makes you feel at ease with his confidence and experience. Would highly recommend to anyone

Dr. Sherman is very knowledgeable. He doesn't jump to surgery or dismiss your pain. He takes time with you and offers treatment options. No one likes going to the doctor, but he makes you feel at ease and it makes the visit nice.
