I loved this Doctor and that's rare. I refer to myself as a Picky Patient. So he wins my vote! He was knowledgable, patient, and kind. He was accurate on my diagnosis and he worked with me to find an antibioticthat I wasn't allergic too. He read some previous tests to make sure he knew the "whole story" most doctors don't even care about a previous report and he was very interested in order to help me.

I went to see Dr. Schwartz about seven years ago when I developed shingles inside my left ear. I have to say that I've never met a more caring physician. When the virus spread to my face causing paralysis, he metme on a weekend to prescribe medication that would prevent serious permanent damage. In addition, on my following visit, my balance had been affected by the ear infection, and Dr. Schwartz didn't allow me to drive home after my visit and arranged for an office staffer to drive me home. Dr. Schwartz is an outstanding physicianI truly respect and admire his sincere dedication to his patients.

This was my very first time seeing Dr. Schwartz and I'm a loyal customer now. At first, I wasn't sure where I would write all my medical history because it wasn't asked with the initial paperwork; as it's usually the casewith most offices (I'm not a fan of that). However, I was pleasantly surprise when it was Dr. Schwartz himself who took my medical history! I loved that. He was knowledgeable, shared medical information in a way that made sense, and was as interested as I am in finding the cause for my ailment. Very nice doctor!

He was extremely thorough. I went to see him after my ear issue had actually resolved, just to see if there was permanent damage, and he still did a complete exam, explained what had been wrong with my ear and suggested how to prevent it from happening again.

Dr. Schwartz was very patient. He listened to my concerns and didn't rush me. He asked me how far I wanted to pursue helping my situation, being that it was mostly due to discomfort. He didn't just push unnecessary meds onme. He was very knowledgable, demonstrating his years of experience.

I did not have very much luck with Dr Schwartz. I am not sure if it was just that what I am suffering from may be rather exotic or abnormal, but he eventually seemed to give up on my treatment afterprescribing nothing but over the counter antihistamines and decongestants. Frustrating. I am visiting a different doctor now.

Dr. Schwartz was thorough and took a conservative approach, choosing not to jump to conclusions or load me up with medications but rather to evaluate my condition over time and to conservatively give me only the most relevant medications, whichI appreciate. He was reassuring in his mannerisms and did not rush me in my appointment. I got a solid 25 minutes for an initial consultation, which is more time than what I've gotten in many other practices. I would recommend him as a knowledgable ENT.

I'd never been to an ENT before, so I had to rely on the ratings on the internet. Dr. Schwartz received very good ratings, so I thought I'd see him. The building is older, but don't judge by that alone. Thestaff was friendly and professional. I waited about 10 or 15 minutes. As others posted, the first thing Dr. did was wash his hands. He didn't rush as he was speaking to me, and he let me ask several questions without being impatient. I am very happy with Dr. Schwartz. He was friendly, approachable, and professional!
