Not a good choice

Doctor Sheerer seemed like an average doctor, until I was very sick. He told me to "get over it" and it was just the flu. He failed to see me once during my illness, and directed me to the ER four times. After the fourth visit, I was hospitalized. The specialist that helped me to get better explained that perhaps if my doctor had listened to my symptoms two months prior I never would have endured the pain and sickness. It was a horrifying experience and the knowledge that my doctor just did not care was even worse. His staff was rude and violated privacy laws. He was very condescending. I would definately recommend not going to this doctor. If I had not been hospitalized (after 2 months of trying to see him), and visited by specialists, I probably would have died by this point.

Great doctor

Dr. Sheererhas been my doctor for about 4 years. I can't say enough about him - he's just the best. I've lived in 4 major cities, had good doctors in each, but Jim (I'm older than him so it's ok), ranks #1 in my book.
