Labrum Tear

I went to see Dr. Sherman for shoulder pain and his goal was to treat my pain. He recommended injection and after one or 2 treatments the suggestion was to determine if I would try PT and allow approx. 18 months of consistent PT before committing to surgery. I am so glad that I considered the recommended PT. Going under the knife so-to-speak should be absolutely LAST option. True to his recommendation I was able to strengthen and NO Surgery needed. Thank you for you time, patience and shared knowledge of the human body.

Surgery as a last treatment

Having seen another doctor who informed me surgery was the only remedy a torn rotator cuff, I was referred to Dr Sherman by a physician friend of mine. He listened carefully to my medical history, read the radiologist's report and went over each MRI slide with me, pointing out in simple terms where the damage was. He said rotator cuff surgery IS NOT simple, and he would recommend it only if physical therapy didn't improve my condition. His honesty, candor, humor and caring was extraordinary He spent a lot of time with me, answering every question I had, in simple terms. As a health care professional myself, I can see Dr Sherman is a very capable doctor who is very conservative in his treatment plans, who puts the patient's well being over generating income. I was very impressed with the professionalism of his office, too. You can see that all who work there take pride in their jobs. Well done and keep up the great work!

Visited with re-torn ACL and meniscus damage. Thoughtful, not too aggressive with diagnosis, considered (risk vs. payback). Did not automatically suggest another ACL replacement given the good existing stability of the knee.
