Dr. Schwartz was incredible! I came in for an issue that I've had off and on my whole life and a recent episode triggered me to finally get it checked out. Dr. Schwartz was very warm and personable and explained everythingshe was doing thoroughly in a way that put me at ease. She listened closely to everything I was saying and didn't make me feel stupid for the ideas I had about it like some doctors occasionally do. She addressed every single question I had and didn't make me feel like we were on a time limit. The way she explains treatment plans and everything in general is very clear and understandable, and I highly highly recommend her if you're feeling the need to look into something. The phlebotomist/nurse was also very good at her job and was one of the easiest blood draws I've had! My only qualm was the tablet used to check in, instead of the clipboard and paper. I like that they're saving on paper but I found the process clunky and time consuming. Otherwise, fantastic office + doctor and I'm already feeling better with the treatment plan she came up with for me.

Dr Schwartz is the second specialist I have seen regarding my current medical situation and I will say that she is intelligent, kind, compassionate, and very thorough. I felt very comfortable speaking with her and as a gay man, I feltthat she was familiar with gay men’s health issues and I felt more and more comfortable as our conversation continued. Although we’re still going to perform a few procedures and tests to determine exactly what’s going on, I feel confident being in her care. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. She’s the GI doc to go with.

Barely finished my intake (electronically!) before my name was called. Amanda was great for taking my vitals (and blood after I saw the doctor), and I spent very little time alone in the office waiting for Dr. Schwartz. She was reallywonderful collecting information and helping me understand my next steps, etc. I found her really calming, and I am really glad I made an appointment at this office.

I came to Dr. Schwartz after a recent poor experience with another GI. From the moment I walked into the practice the experience was positive. The office staff were friendly and responsive (my previous GI had neglected to fax over mypaperwork after I'd requested it, and the woman registering me immediately volunteered to call their office then and there). Dr. Schwartz listened to all my background information and concerns and asked a number of thorough followup questions. She clearly explained what action she wanted to take, what it would entail, and why it was necessary. Although it remains to be seen whether my issue will be solved, I feel very confident moving forward with her suggestions.

Ever since I've moved to NYC 13 years ago, I've had some hard times finding good doctors. I definitely got a great first impression from Ms Schwartz. She was very nice and listened well, and she also explained info and optionsto me in a pleasant, informative way. Seeing a gastroenterologist can be very nerve-wracking, but she put me at ease, and her extensive education was also comforting. The Woolworth building is also a beautiful place for a doctor's visit!
