DO NOT GO HERE. My appointment was at 2pm and it was 2:55 and there were still 2 patients in front of me. Time is valuable, but not here.

I'm so glad that I chose to go to Dr. Schwartz. She is extremely knowledgeable! I had gone to 3 different doctors regarding my skin condition and was wrongly diagnosed by all 3. My skin worsened, so I decided to bookan appointment with Dr. Schwartz knowing that she has a lot of experience. Dr. Schwartz correctly diagnosed it and I am finally on the mend! My skin hasn't been this nice in many years! I highly recommend her!

Dr. Schwartz and her staff were extremely friendly and made sure they were able to listen to all my needs. I liked the small office environment which is a nice change to some of these large dermatology offices. Dr. Schwartz dida small procedure and she was very through while making sure it was painless.

Super long wait time (45-1 hour) even with appointment. Doctor still had me waiting in room. When she finally came in, she was short and did not take time to listen to me or explain what she was going to do.I wanted to remove some moles and she was really brief, did not explain any options to me, just froze them- which left me with huge and painful blisters. Now I have scars where my moles once were. Would not go back here again. She had me wait for a long time and then just breezed over me. Did not really explain any post care either.

la consulta fue rápido y precisa, incluso la enfermera ya había sugerido el diagnostico. Me recetaron el medicamento para mi problema de la piel para 15 días, hoy solo hace 6 días y casi esta resuelto por completo. Gracias al equipomedico, incluida la recepcionista, todos muy amables. Sin dudas lo recomiendo y si yo tuviera algún otro problema con mi piel, volveré a esta consulta.

The wait has been more than an hour. I’ve had issues with dermatitis before, and Dr. Schwartz fat shamed instead of addressing the immediate issue. Would not recommend.

I am very pleased with the treatment from Dr. Schwartz. She is very thorough, considers all factors, and has a great bedside manner. This was my second visit. I rated the wait a 3 only because they had a difficult patientand got backed up. They apologized for the wait and thanked me for being patient. On the first visit, I was seen within 10 minutes. I would highly recommend Dr. Schwartz.

Terrible experience. Came in with a skin condition I have been noticing and looking for professional help with this. Her response to my concern was “only god knows what this is”. WHAT? I payed money so you can help me figureit out. Anyway would never go back. Not to mention I waited over a hour in the waiting room.

My visit was very pleasing. The front desk was very nice and conversational. Once I was seated in the room, I was in there no more than 10 minutes and then Dr. Dchwartz came in. She was very warm, and wasable to give me answers to my situation immediately. She provided me with several steps to stop my problem, and was very quick to let me know if I had any more questions/concerns to contact her. Overall, a very quick and succesful visit.

She was super kind and interested in my well-being. This was the first time I came in for a visit, but plan on going in for a follow-up to see if her recommendation for my stubborn skin was effective.

I’ve been a patient for several years and mostly have great experiences. The wait time was longer than usual (from what I heard due to unforeseen circumstances with one of the office managers) but I was not happy when I couldhear a man who had an appt after mine arguing with the front that he needed to be seen earlier than others because he had to be somewhere. I had already been waiting for an hour in my exam room and my appt was before his. I overheard the nurse finally give in and let him cut in front of those of us who had already been waiting. I felt like this was completely unfair. While the rest of my appt and experience with doctor Schwartz was great I felt like letting a rude and disrespectful patient cut in line was an unfortunate way to treat the other patients who patiently and respectfully waited for their turn.

What I really liked was how the doctor and her nurse were very thoughtful about the cost of my medications, and they made sure I got the best medicine for the most cost effective price.
