Scam!

Went in for sinus issues. Dr. Scher was very quiet. Did not really want to explain anything or answer questions. Very poor bedside manner. Wanted to get me in and out of his office as quickly as possible. I was ultimately billed for a "surgery" that I guess they consider an in-office procedure to examine my sinuses. I was not notified of this ahead of time. It sure would have been nice to know that my insurance would be billed $700 and I would ultimately be paying $150 just to be prescribed an antibiotic for a sinus infection after 10 min total in his office! After reading other reviews, it looks like others are reporting similar claims as well. He wants to see as many patients as he can, as quickly as he can and charge as much as he can! Will not be going back to Dr. Scher!

Stay Away

This doctors only priority is getting you out of his office. After 3 visits and a total of 6 minutes of his time, I am at square one. He didn't want to do or tell me anything. The least bit of concern I have ever experienced. I could go on and on, but am only leaving this to warn others
