I found this to be uncouth and inappropriate - talking too proximate during the examination, brushing hair away from my face, which I found esp so to this quite inappropriate and having no thoughts to this kind of behavior. And the office style to only lend itself to this being cramped and messy. He should hold himself to a caliber and not subject to this type of behavior. Even more so bc the examination method was actually quite thorough and intelligent.

Dr. Sherman is warm, professional, and thorough. I have used him as my primary "eye doctor" for many, many years. He also provides glasses for my husband, and when they were dependents, for our kids (now grown) as well. He spends a lot of time explaining exams and the results of the exams. The downside of this attentiveness is that he is often behind schedule, but not terribly so.

The glasses I purchased were ill fitting and the doctor did not take my concerns seriously. I was so unhappy that I decided to go elsewhere and just purchase a whole new pair . I was willing to bear the extra expense because I could not wear the glasses the way he adjusted them. The new place I went to was able to fix them without charging me a penny. I do not understand why Dr.Sherman could not do this. The office was messy and he never wore gloves during treatment nor did I see him sterilize.
