Specialties

Dr. David D Sherry has the following 4 specialties

  • Pediatric Rheumatology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine

    If your child ever becomes unstable and you rush to the hospital, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist will work to quickly diagnose the condition, start treatment and then continue to monitor symptoms until he/she is stable again. They are pediatricians specifically trained to handle medical emergencies and make quick decisions to treat infants and children.
    They have experience treating allergic reactions, poisonings, trauma injuries from accidents and complications that arise from any chronic illnesses, congenital conditions, asthma or diabetes. They can also diagnose the source of severe symptoms like fever, seizures and trouble breathing to get parents more answers.

Illogical and inappropriate

Dr. Sherry’s logic surrounding the entire program is flawed. If one is supposed to alleviate pain via pretending it doesn’t exist and not talking about it, but that makes the stress worse, and stress makes the pain worse, than how is a child ever supposed to recover from this (with his philosophy)? The answer is that they can’t. Perhaps more importantly, though, is that Dr. Sherry’s insistence that patients dance with him and his constant proximity to patients concerns me. It isn’t okay to say no to dancing, even if DANCING WITH AN OLD MAN makes young girls uncomfortable (as it should). Don’t send your children to Dr. Sherry. His program is torture.

Although Dr. Sherry was helpful, his office management was horrible and as a results we paid a lot of money and nothing was accomplished. After visiting 10 specialists, we were referred to Dr. Sherry. It was a relief to hear him say..."I know what your son has. There is an 80% chance I can cure him and 100% chance I can make his life better" We left with hope. Then the nightmare began. I received a call saying our insurance did not cover the services he needed, there was nothing they could do. (We had BCBS, what had been excellent insurance for us so I was very surprised). Trying to reach Vanessa (Office manager) was difficult because she rarely returned phone calls and did not communicate well. When I asked, What are my options, she referred me to the nurse practitioner. When I spoke to her she asked, "Why are you calling me, I didn't see your son". Finally I was given the option to come see an OT/PT in the AMPS clinic who could help individualize a home therapy plan. We drove all the way back (from NC). Our "individualized" assessment consisted of a 12 min run on a treadmill and the "individualized plan" consisted of a photocopied total body work out. For that we received a bill for $1900. Disgusting. Our medical system is broken! Do not waste your time with this office.

Don't let the clown nose fool you. He should be wearing horns! He is an evil man hiding behind stupid jokes. He is using your children as mice in an experiment. However, unlike medical mouse studies, he will dismiss any patients with an unfavorable outcome. If you choose to go down this road, good luck, hopefully your children won't die.

Dr sherry lies to his patients. He spells it out in his numerous journal articles. He does not believe in AMPS/RND/RSD/CRPS pain and he manipulates parents into letting his staff emotionally abuse their kids. Do not see this man.

Thank you Dr. Sherry and CHOP! You are AMAZING!!!

Dr. Sherry is an amazing doctor and even though my pain hasn't gone away yet, I am grateful to him for making me functional. We scheduled my appointment at CHOP with Dr. Sherry because I had been diagnosed with RSD/CRPS and none of the treatments where I lived were working. My parents found Dr. Sherry and his amazing treatment program, and he was the best doctor I had ever met. He was very knowledgeable, and gave me an accurate and detailed description of my diagnosis that I could understand. He told jokes that I would pretend weren't funny, but they actually were. He takes his time with you and never makes you feel like he's in a rush or has to see other patients; all of my appointments were pretty long. About a month and a half after my initial evaluation at CHOP, I went to Philadelphia to start my treatment at the hospital with physical and occupational therapy, accompanied by psychological counseling. My four weeks at CHOP were the hardest and most painful weeks I have ever experienced, and probably will ever experience, but they gave me my life back. I had swimming every morning, which could never compare to the intensity of the swimming workouts I normally do, but helped to prepare me for when I went back home. I practiced carrying laundry up the stairs and other basic life functions in occupational therapy, and I know that I would be nowhere near as functional as I am now without them. Physical therapy got me ready to be an active soccer-loving tween again, and now I can run and cut just as well as my teammates who don't have RSD/CRPS. My favorite parts of my stay at CHOP were Fun Fridays (when all of the AMPS patients would work together during physical therapy for an hour and have fun) and lunch (where all of the patients could talk openly about our days, our worries about returning to normal life, our challenges, and encourage each other. I am now close friends with the people I met at CHOP who were just like me. AMPS is caused in part by stress, and some of that stress is from having nobody around who has or knows a lot about your condition. Seeing other kids go through what I'm going through really helped me on my path to recovery, and I'd like to thank all of my friends for that). I want to say a special thank you to all of the people who helped me to become the competitive athlete that I am now: Dr. Sherry, Deb, Traci, Steve, Ashley, Jamie, Joyce, Jaclyn, Lori, David, Michelle, Ed, and every other person who works at CHOP! Thank you!
