I was extremely impressed and thankful for Dr Scher's assessment on my son's symptoms. We went to him as a second opinion and cannot say enough how warm, knowledgeable and professional he is. Highly highly recommended. Dr B

Happy Mommy

I love Dr. Scher. He was very knowledgeable and knew his stuff. My 10 yr old son had surgery this past week and I cannot say enough about Dr. Scher and his staff at the Hospital for special surgeries. My son felt very comfortable with Dr. Scher and came through a tough surgery without much pain... we will be doing his other foot as soon as we can....

Found Dr Scher to be kind, compassionate and overall very thorough in his consultation with my teenage daughter. He encouraged questions, took his time with us and told us pros and cons of surgery. Definitely would recommend him to others
