Verified Patient Reviews
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!
I certainly would...I have been seeing him since 1999, and I have always found him to be the consummate professional.
He was thorough, empathic and helpful.
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 minutes before 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 to make an appointment with him directly and not a nurse practitioner.
AMAZING DOCTOR! So attentive, polite and took his time to really listen to help find out my problem.
Very thurough and very professional. He asked in depth questions and was very efficient.
Dr Schwartz is always great.
He care about every point of disease thank him ,
Really personable and thorough. I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz
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 and giving me great advice. The staff at the office are also very kind.
Very friendly , listened to me. Will keep as my PCP
He cares about all things and he is listening carfully and i am grateful
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 was very professional. He was on time, efficient and thorough in my history review and examination. He has a very good patient rapport and bedside manner. I was very pleased with my appointment with him.
The new office is great. Large, clean and professionally run. Dr Schwartz is excellent as usual and has surrounded himself with friendly and kind Physician's Assistants and staff.
He's amazing and very thorough with great bedside manners.
Very professional, attentive, thorough, and excellent bedside manner. Would not hesitate recommending Dr. Schwartz.
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
I am very pleased to be his patient. Thank you
Efficient courteous and very pleasant
Very thorough, very related, patient and caring
Dr. Lawrence was extremely affable and caring. He was very organized and professional. I highly recommend him.
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
