Dr. Jeffrey Sherman is a board-certified gastroenterologist with over two decades of experience. Having served the Greater Los Angeles community from his office at the world-renowned Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, California, he has been entrusted with the care of some of Hollywood’s biggest names and most prestigious families.
Dr. Sherman is recognized throughout the U.S. as a regular contributor on the popular NBC television program "The Doctors," where he has been the “go to” expert on gastrointestinal issues and educated viewers on digestive issues, parasites, and irritable bowel syndrome. To further educate the audience about GI procedures, he was filmed performing an endoscopy, colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy for the show.
A graduate of UCLA, he earned his medical degree from the USC School of Medicine and performed his residency at Cedars Sinai while completing a clinical fellowship in Digestive Diseases at UCLA. He also served as an instructor at the Gastroenterology Fellowship Training Program and as an attending physician on outpatient clinics and rounds, both with the UCLA Gastroenterology Department.
Dr. Sherman has had the privilege to learn about gastroenterological health from his father, Dr. James Sherman, who previously held the position of Clinical Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
"My father taught me a lot," says Dr. Sherman. "One of the things he shared, that had a profound impact on me, was the words of the Greek physician and 'Father of Medicine,' Hippocrates, who said: 'All disease begins in the gut' and 'Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.' Understanding that, was what inspired me to dedicate my life to further my father's work, by using today's scientific advancements."
A true believer in the power of proper nutrition to treat most medical conditions, Dr. Sherman says his mission is to provide his patients with a comprehensive insight of how their bodies work and how they are fueled.
Dr. Sherman, who served on the Board of Directors for the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America, is currently a member of the American Gastroenterological Association and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopists.
