Terrible. Personable enough but after surgery blames any pain or joint dysfunction on needing more therapy or effort. I actually have needed 2 additional surgeries to fix multiple problems from his surgeries. I would stay far away!

Dr. Scheer did an anterior hip replacement for me last year. From the first meeting to the recent 1 year follow-up, with visits in between, he has proven to be the most incredible physician I have met. His patience, thoroughness, and kindness far surpass any other. My plans to hike 110 miles in the Alps next month address his skill as a surgeon. I feel beyond lucky that our paths crossed. I actually think about him every time I walk up or down a flight of stairs with no pain/fear of falling

About two years ago I had a total knee replacement on my right knee by Dr. Scheer. The results are truly amazing. I've gone from hardly being able to walk up and down stairs to doing long distance bicycling, hiking and hard skiing with no problem at all. Actually, my operated on knee is stronger than my "good" knee now and I totally trust it in any activity. It was truly a life changer for me in a very positive way Dr. Scheer was prompt, professional and judging from my results, very competen

That I did not really want! I am done with bandaids I want my knee fixed! Not only did he not explain to me the shots he was giving me he definitely did not explain the unbelievable pain I would be in afterward! He knew I think I was from out of town and did not even bother to ask if I was by myself! I had to basically beg for the MRI. And by the time I got out of that the pain was very intense. I honestly did. It think I was gonna make it home! I bet you he has not even looked at my MRI!!!!
