There are no words to convey the skill and integrity of Dr. Schwartz. My spinal tumor was expertly removed and the care post surgery was excellent. Dr Schwartz gave me back my ability to enjoy and appreciate all that's good. He's amazing

Not a very caring doctor. Pushes surgery at any possible point even when other options are available. Rude

My mother had two failed surgeries 15 yrs ago by Dr. Schwartz. I discouraged her from his recommendation for a third. I have found 2 other doctors recently that hold him in very low esteem. After our experiences, we cannot recommend him.
