Dr. Sherman was recommended by my son-in-law, also an Orthopedic Surgeon. He performed a total right knee replacement on me at East Jefferson (Great hospital) on September 25, 2018. He used the MAKO robotic assisted surgery apparatus to ensure the perfect fit of the knee implants. The result is fantastic! He straightened my bent leg, eliminated my horrible limp and most importantly, ended the years of suffering intense pain. I highly recommend Dr. Sherman to everyone who has a bad knee.

Never , My husband went to see this so called Ortho he spent no more than 5 mins in the room with him. Told him to lift his leg ask him where the pain was told him oh that is your back. Let's do an MRI we will run your insurance I will be right back. He never came back the nurse did to say they would be in touch tomorrow . He did nothing for my husband pain who barely walked. No treatment no shot, no oral medication & no discussion of what he thought was wrong. Will not be back HORRIBLE!!!!

My first visit was to determine who I would choose to do my knee replacement. Dr. Sherman was very understanding and patiently answered my list of concerns and questions. He seems to CARE. Since I already have another surgeon I wanted to get a second opinion. He gave me insight into the other surgeon I presently use and assured me that he thought the other surgeon would be a good choice. Due to his answers and my concerns, I have decided to choose Dr Sherman for my surgeon. He uses robotics.

Dr Sherman is very good doctor he did a knee replacement on my right knee. Hospital stay was one night. Everyone could not believe how well I did The problem is the opiate crisis because of that Dr Sherman does not prescribe anything by the 4 week and Pt alone is torture...this surgery pain was horrible for a 67 year old he made you feel like I don’t need any thing for pain He definitely a great surgeon. Also need a hip replacement which hurts bad .He made me feel very uncomfortable

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.

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.

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.
