    Dr. Schwartzman was so personable and informative from the time we met him in the E.R. when he came to introduce himself to me and mother who was suffering from bowel obstruction. He gave us his word and he stood by it. He's kind and consistent with his care and has a great team beside him. A surgery that could have taken hours took the one hour and 25 minutes. Thank you Dr. Schwartzman from the Davis family.
