William J Schwartz, MD, is Assistant Professor of Cardiology in the Department of Medicine of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease. For more than 35 years, he has been committed to caring for patients with cardiac conditions in Queens and Manhattan. He provides compassionate and customized care to patients inherent in his belief that each patient has a biological, psychological and social aspect to their heart condition.

Dr. Schwartz was an early leader in the community in championing continuity of patient care as a key approach to improving patient quality of care and outcomes.

I never felt in better hands. Dr Schwartz is a fountain of knowledge, and like some doctors he’s not at all stingy to share it. He has obviously paid his dues. Primo Cardiologist.

I would not recommend this doctor at all. The wait was ridiculous but would be worth it for good care. It wasn't worth it for me. Dr. Schwartz was completely inappropriate. I told him I had anxiety around a particular procedureand he said "just get over it or I'll spank you!" He was clearly joking and I didn't feel unsafe but definitely uncomfortable. Then I brought up a few more concerns and he stopped me and said "my god you're giving me too much, it's like a buffet at a wedding. It's overwhelming". Completely invalidated my concerns. Clearly he thinks he's clever and maybe his shtick might be more appealing to a different type of patient but if you are a young woman just know you run the risk of being treated inappropriately and disrespected.

Amazing administration, short waiting time, very friendly personnel and Doctor himself is amazing, so caring and he assured me 3 times that from now he will take care of it and I don't need to worry anymore. And really, first timein my life ( and I have seen a lot of doctors so far) I believe him. I really believe he will be able to find what triggers my cholesterol and how to deal with everything it's affecting. Thank you Zocdoc for this Doctor. I literally fell in love with entire office. From first second everything seemed right and easy. Thank you Highly recommend.

I did not get to see Dr. Schwartz. My appointment was scheduled for 4:45pm. I got a call and was told he was free at 3:45pm. I told work that I would be moving my appointment and got to Dr. Schwartz'soffice by 3:45. I waited until 4:30pm and was told it would be another 5-10 minutes at least so I left. I've seen Dr. Schwartz once before (hence the 5 stars for bedside manner) and he was great. But I waited over an hour to see him then as well. Not worth the wait, there are plenty of other great cardiologists in the city.

Visited Dr. Schwartz after I had pain in my chest while I am training for a marathon. The attention he dedicated toward me as a patient was great and I really appreciated it. We did all the necessary tests in orderto determine the cause of my pain. Can't thank him and his team enough. Highly recommended!

I'm in LOVE with this Dr! He has the best and friendliest personality. Unfortunately my heart isn't an issue right now so it kinda sucks not being able to see him like every week. I feel like hanging out with himall day long just to pick his brain etc. I can bet he's the life of the party everywhere he goes, that's how interesting my visit with him was. I don't mind the wait time, for him, I'd wait an extra hour to see him.

Great cardiologist setting. Had my echo same day. I will be honest and say that there was some waiting involved but I do not mind it as much as long as I know I am getting a good care which wasthe case here. And I must also add that assistant doctor was also super nice and helpful. Happy to have found the place.

Dr. Schwartz's approachable demeanor and ability to put you at ease with a quick joke underlines the great quality of his care. This wasn't a "let me ask you three questions and take your blood pressure" visit - Dr. Schwartz reallyseemed to care about hearing from me. He was kind enough to then explain the reason for his many questions, which in turn made me feel like he actually cared and wanted to help. What started as a nervous visit to check on a vital area (the heart's pretty important to living, I hear) ended with me feeling a world better. I thank him and his friendly team for their time and help.
