"My experience with Dr. Scherer was wonderful and I'd go back in an instant if I have medical issues again. He is a top -notch surgeon who worked in the ghetto of Chicago with numerous gun-shot wounds, which means that he worked in the trenches. I also heard he was pilot in the army. I am thrilled he has lots of experience because that makes me secure he know what he is doing. And I refuse to be mesmerized by young surgeons who seem nice, but don't have talent on operating on people."

"Dr. Scherer took very good care of my grandmother during her last visit. The hospital was very busy, but he still found the time to stop in and check in on her every couple of hours and see how she was feeling. My grandmother had nothing but good things to tell us about Dr. Scherer when it was time to take her home."
