I seriously question Dr. Sherer’s care and attentiveness to patients in times of need. Dr. Sherer was my father-in-law’s doctor and, sadly, he showed a real lack of professionalism and care when my father-in-law needed him most. My father-in-law was a very healthy man in his 70s whose health suddenly began to decline over the past several months for no known reason. After urging him to see his general physician, Dr. Sherer ordered a number of different tests with specialists to determine what was ailing him.
Tests came back normal yet my father-in-law’s health continued to decline. Rather than show a real concern or interest in identifying the underlying issue as you might expect of someone who has dedicated their career to doing just that, Dr. Sherer lacked empathy when my husband contacted Dr. Sherer on my father-in-law’s behalf, begging him to help us identify potential solutions. At one point Dr. Sherer actually said to my husband on the phone “well I don’t know what’s wrong with him!” Finally we realized we wouldn’t be getting the help we needed from Dr. Sherer and sent my father-in-law to to the hospital for more consistent and focused care.
I am very sorry to say that my father in law’s condition spiraled in the hospital and he died in ICU care. I write this review in the hopes that people have all the information they need to make smart choices about their medical care. Inadequate doctors can get away with a lot when their patients are in good health — anyone can give vaccines and do regular checkups — but it’s when you need them most that doctors real talents are tested and, simply put, some just don’t have what it takes.
