Verified Patient Reviews
I thought Dr. Schwartz was great. He was very thorough and very personal at the same time. It was like the old days when the doctor actually knows who you are - not just a number.
Very professional and thorough. I finally found the doctor that I have been searching for.
Dr. Schwqrtz is an excellent diagnostician. He really knows his stuff. He is able to figure out the problem. He knows medicine and also alternatives to medicine. He has been able to diagnose difficult issues when other doctors failed to do so.
Dr. Schwartz is by far one of the most thorough Drs I have ever met. He takes the time to educate his patients on their condition in ways I have never really experienced. It is unfortunate that his methods are the exception rather than the rule. I think he should teach a class on proper patient care.
Dr. Schwartz is very easy to talk to. He doesn't get upset when I told him I didn't want to go on any hypertension meds. We worked on ways to lower BP naturally; however, my BP is very stubborn and relented after a few months. He explained the importance of lowering my BP and I just have to accept that I'm not perfect. Dr. Schwartz is knowledgable and caring and wants an excellent outcome for me. What more could I want?
He's really stupid and slow. But yet, he charges "extra time" if the appointment it's longer. He couldn't find the results of my exams and he just wants to promote his "health programs" and make business. Really, don't waste you money and time. Look for a real doctor
He was very attentive to my concerns and looking to provide a complete answer to my issues. And unhurried. His assistant, Donna, was also very attentive, warm and helpful.

Dr. Schwartz is excellent. My first time visit. He spent one and half hour carefully asking all my concerns and history. What the other doctors did and what I liked and not liked about their treatment. He explained and educate in great detail. His examination is one of the kind, clearly different than the traditional medicine doctors.
