    It was obvious that DR. Sherman had spent time acquainting herself with my case in that we were a referral from Kaiser-Permanente. She explained with great detail my condition(s) and offered some additional ideas and medications. She was kind easy to talk to and above all knowledgeable. I am looking forward to hearing from her as to my follow up treatment.
