Specialties

Dr. Spencer E Sherman has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Dr. Sherman is the kind of doctor more interested in making extra bucks than the well-being of his patients. I went into his office for a very minor eye infection. He insisted I come back for a second visit, even though my eye ended up healing the next day after my first visit. He bullied me into coming in again by saying I'd end up at the hospital if I didn't see him again.During the second visit, even though he admitted my eye had completely healed, he insisted on running another $500 worth of tests. He never okay-ed these tests with me but instead handed me off to a bunch of nurses that ran very basic eye exams that a school nurse could have done. I've never before had a doctor who I felt bullied me into more visits and procedures so he could make some more money. I really think there are other honest doctors in the city that you should see instead.
