Verified Patient Reviews
My daughter liked him and was comfortable during her check up
The visit was great. He is very observant and gentle. The only problem was the 3 hour wait to be seen.
I am so happy we found Dr Switzer some years ago. He is kind and compassionate. I love the way he actually talks to my child and to me as well. He listens. And the staff are great.
I have been taking my son to Dr. Switzer for a couple of years and now I also take my newborn daughter to him as well. He is a great doctor and always shows great concern with any ailment I bring my children in for and is very attentive as well. My only complaint is the wait time. Most visits are close to 2 hours and it becomes difficult to entertain any child for that amount of time.
We love Dr.Switzer! All staff is lovely
He was very kind and informative. Really good with my 9 month old. I highly recommend mr. Switzer anytime.
Dr. Switzer is an awesome doctor. He listens to you and check everything that you mention to him. He DO NOT rush through his routine checks. He's an spectacular doctor. I highly recommend him.
My son Anthony has been seeing Dr. Switzer for a few years now and he has always been great .
Visit was cancelled due to not having the ref number for? change of pcp
He is very professional and nice.
I don't like to wait and that is what I did today my 8 month old and I waited an hour to me seen. When we see his doctor Dr Marcia Moreira we don't wait but 5 to 10 minutes for her, I don't go in if she's not there but today she was her day off.
I Really liked the way he understood my concerns for my daughter and not jumping the gun on just giving her medicine just showing heart and concern. Thank you Dr. Switzer.
