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.

Dr. Sherman has one of the best bedside manners' Ive experienced in as long time. He was very knowledgeable and most of all he was so kind. My wife who accompanied me to my appointment is even considering him for her own orthopedic needs. I look forward to trusting him with all my orthopedic needs.
in Kiln, MS |
Wonderful Doctor. Very knowledgeable and helpful. My husband had a serious knee injury which the original dr repaired the knee but in after that surgery 6 months later was having serious issues. He went to Dr. Sherman and had research the best option for my husband and won't know what could be done until he did the new surgery. He did a total replacement and after 3 months husband is getting back to normal without pain and no crutches after being on them for a year.
in Austin, TX |
After a traumatic break of my hip during the Christmas holiday, Dr. Sherman treated me. I was impressed with his dedication, skill and last but not least, his willingness to communicate. This doctor is dedicated 24/7 and is one of the best representatives of the medical profession I have yet encountered.
