What do patients have to say about you?

Had surgery 5 years ago for a descending aortic aneurysm, that Dr. Schermerhorn performed, I believe I would not be here if I had not met him and had the surgery.

After a bad industrial accident at work and possibly being misdiagnosed at an emergency room, I needed a second opinion on surgery for what Dr's knew little about (Segmental Arterial Mediolysis). Dr. Schermerhorn suggested a surgical procedure on closing my hepatic artery where two aneurisms were. His suggestion to tie the artery closed I believed allowed me to live! Words can not express my gratitude!

I had a splenic aneurysm in 2009, and was treated by Dr. Schermerhorn. Since that time, I have had check ups and have to say I am impressed by his knowledge, patient manner, care, and in general expertise.
