Doctor Helps Agent

Dr. John E. Sherman, M.D., F.A.C.S, is a true humanitarian and friend to the DEA. In fact, he is surely a special friend to Special Agent Bruce Travers.

Agent Travers was shot in the jaw during a raid in New York in 1988. As a result of the shooting he sustained severe facial injuries, and was rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment.Presentation of Special Commendation from the DEA

Fortunately, Dr. Sherman, who specializes in plastic surgery, particularly facial trauma, heard about the incident and visited Agent Travers. After a thorough examination of Agent Travers, Dr.Sherman offered Agent Travers his expert services, and has since performed over a dozen facial reconstructive surgeries.

Through his work with Agent Travers, Dr. Sherman and New York Division SAC Carlo Boccia began discussions concerning a DEA physician referral system.

Together, Dr. Sherman and SAC Boccia have now designed a referral system for the New York Division listing treatment specialists in every medical discipline who would be available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, in life and non-life threatening situations, to act as an advisory panel for DEA. This would also include follow-up care to include rehabilitation programs.

Additionally, special arrangements have been made that would allow an Emergency Medical Response (EMR) team to be on standby when the DEA is preparing for a sensitive raid situation. The EMR team would be strategically located which would enable them to respond immediately to a emergency situation. SAC Boccia said “This is the first referral system of this type used by the Federal Government. “

Meanwhile, Dr. Sherman was presented with a special commendation for his work with Agent Travers.

[Editor’s note: Dr. Sherman has specialized in plastic surgery since 1978 and is certified by the American Board of Plastic surgery. He is Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.]
