Verified Patient Reviews
This was my first visit to a doctor in a decade, and so I was a bit anxious. Dr. Schwartz was the ideal doctor by any measure.
Dr. Schwartz has a very clean and aesthetically pleasing office. He is in a group with a few other doctors so they share a fairly large office. To start we sat down in his office and he took a lot of time to learn about my medical history and symptoms so he could have a more holistic picture of my health. Afterwards he did a thorough physical exam and had one of his technicians do bloodwork, she was very good. I felt as though Dr. Schwartz knew what he was doing and was very knowledgeable. He doesn't care much to chat about personal anecdotes, but you can tell he cares about your health.
Very thorough, attentive and kind. He listened to all of my concerns and did not dismiss anything I said as trivial. He took the time to understand why I was there and I'm really glad I found such a great doctor.
Dr. listen carefully and advise very good

Wonderful doctor, can tell her cares about his patients. Answered all questions without rushing. Very clean and organized facilities.
I love him! Been going to him for years.
LOVED Dr. Schwartz! He took his time and listed to all my complaints. Highly recommend!
Very pleased with his frankness and professionalism. Felt very trusted. His nurse did some of the physical work, but Dr did the exam. Felt like I can reach him directly when I need him.
Dr. Schwartz has been my doctor for over four years now. He is so passionate about his work and takes his time during appointments. He remembers almost everything and doesn't treat you like just another patient. I highly recommend him!
He was very thorough with my history and physical. I definitely felt well-cared-for. He's definitely "old school," which has its pluses and minuses. He adheres to the older USPSTF guidelines on mammograms, etc. My only complaint is that he didn't want to add a simple blood test to confirm I'm in menopause to the list of bloodwork I was already having done. He insisted on referring me to an OB-Gyn. Other than this, it was a good experience.
I felt the relaxed, almost informal, but not lax atmosphere of the office and of all the personnel contributed to making me feel comfortable for a successful first visit. Dr. Schwartz was down to earth, engaging, yet professional and highly effective.
Very knowledgeable, compassionate physician. Can not recommend him enough.
I love Dr. Schwartz! He is wonderful, his staff is courteous and kind., I've been going to him for a number of years and have recommended a few of my friends to him and we all are happy with his services!
Great doctor. Asks many questions. Seems concerned about why I am there. Great bedside manner as well. Highly recommend.
My visit with Dr. Schwartz is always pleasant. He is really the best!!
Dr. Schwartz has been my Primary Care Physician for years. He is a really nice man, very attentive, thorough and responsive. He also returns every call, unlike many doctors I have seen!
Dr. Schwartz was absolutely wonderful! He brought me into his office first to take the time and learn about me, listen and ask questions before examining me. We went over a few things and then he took me into the examining room where he personally took my vitals (blood pressure, heart rate, etc). He was thorough, understanding, took the time to answer all of my questions and made sure we covered everything. He truly was wonderful and he should be a model for all doctors! I cannot say enough how wonderful he was - HIGHLY recommend him!!
He was caring, listened to the all story and had excellent bedside manners.
I was very impressed not only with Dr. Schwartz, but also with his efficient and professional front-desk and support staff. I am very pleased with my experience and have recommended that other members of my family consider him for primary care
Thorough, listens, personally follows up, and has a direct voice mail line-wonderful.
He was easy to talk to, empathetic and helpful
Dr. Schwartz was great! He made me feel very comfortable and was quick but thorough. I would recommend him to everyone, I will definitely be using him as my primary care doctor going forward.
Dr. Schwartz is patient, thorough, and overall a great physician. I have to admit that he was already my doctor before he joined ZocDoc, but now I have a much easier time scheduling my appointments with him.
Dr. Schwartz showed genuine concern when discussing my medical condition. He was very thorough and asked me a lot of questions to understand the cause.
Excellent experience, I was a little worried going to a new doctor but was put at ease straight away. I would highly recommend
