Dr. Schwartz really is everything you want in an old school, professional, Physician. I'm not sure if he makes house calls, but he makes phone calls after hours as needed, he's always available and he remembers everything about me, even thoughI usually only see him once a year. What a great guy and a great doctor!

I had to change my Primary care physician after 16 years being with him, due to insurance requirement and change of job. I was nervous about getting a new Doctor. My first visit with Dr Schwartz put my mind at easeand he took a keen interest in my past medical history and gave me a full and complete examination. First impressions with him was great and office staff was great. I intend to visit him for any future consultations and exams. I highly recommend.

Dr. Schwartz is very personable and professional. He asked a lot of questions to understand my condition and answered my questions very thoroughly. He gave me a new prescription to try and I’m going back in 2 weeks for a follow-upvisit. It’s very refreshing to find a Doctor who seems to genuinely care about improving your quality of life. I highly recommend this pulmonologist!

Had a great experience seeing Dr. Schwartz for a pulmonary exam. The receptionists were friendly, and I didn't have to wait very long at all. Dr. Schwartz came out to greet me and was extremely friendly and professional. I plan on making him my primary care physician now!

As always Dr Schwartz is a professional, old school doctor in the best of ways. He feels like an old family friend, yet I only see him 1-2x per year. The office is clean and well run. I arrived 10 minutesbefore my appointment and they took me right without a wait.

He is truly a caring and thorough doctor. I was very impressed by his concern for his patients and the time he took to really get to know me and my health history. I was also pleased to be able tomake an appointment with him directly and not a nurse practitioner.

Best doctor in NYC. Knowledgable, treats you very well and he cares about his patient as he performs extremely careful checkups. I've gone to his office for several small problems and he has always resolved them finding the root cause andgiving me great advice. The staff at the office are also very kind.

Wonderful doc! Was seen very promptly (waited no more than 5 minutes after handing my paperwork in). Super nice, but he's focused on your health, not on being your best friend. He started by drilling me about me/my family's health history,then went into the exam. Super pleasant experience overall, look forward to seeing him again.

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 oftime 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.

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 hedidn'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.
