He is an excellent doctor and listened to what you had to say. He went over all your problems in an easy to understand way and gave solutions to them. His use of technology to facilitate things is defiantly a big plus. I highly recommend him.

I had been looking for a doctor in NYC since moving from London last year but it was a daunting task. I finally approached Dr Schwimmer based on other reviews and after seeing a videoclip featuring him. From the first minute the consultation felt like I was having a genuine chat with a good friend. He is methodical with great attention to detail and puts you right at ease. Most importantly he listens to you and explains everything without the condescending attitude you get from some doctors. There is no question that he knows his stuff. He is a modern doctor who espouses technology and you can tell he is the kind of doctor who will remain on the leading edge of his chosen profession which he loves. He has energy but at the same time there is a calming sense from being around him. I feel fortunate to have found him. In a single word he is "Awesome".

The entire experience was very pleasant from the moment I walked in the door. The women at reception were helpful and courteous. Dr. Schwimmer saw me 15 minutes early which was really nice. We spent about an hour and a half with him building a very complete medical history and he took notes during the whole process. He was attentive and asked me about all aspects of my past and current health. He was able to give me all the information I needed and asked for. I highly recommend Dr. Schwimmer to anyone looking for a friendly, knowledgeable and thorough doctor.

Dr. Schwimmer was friendly and thorough during my general checkup. Never felt rushed or uncomfortable. Felt like a partner. Looking forward to next appointment. Structure of appointment as follows: 1. Introductory chit chat: showed legitimate interest in my lifestyle, work, and background. Shares my enthusiasm for technology (in addition to medicine). 2. Discovery: The 'how are we feeling today?' phase. Asked thoughtful targeted questions to help discover the rare, 'well, doc, there is one other thing...' 3. Examination: Ran specific diagnostics based on discoveries and suspicions. 4. Analysis: Dispelled myths. Prioritized immediate needs. Established action plan. 5. Action: Wrote prescriptions. Printed referrals and facts about conditions. Administered vaccines. Set timeline and dates for test results and follow up appointment. Total face time: 1.5 hrs.
