Patient Comments (7)

Dr. Schwartz's bedside manner was incredible. She was very friendly, polite, and professional. She was very easy to communicate with. She listened to what I had to say about my vision problems and her examination was more than thorough as the exam lasted more than a half an hour. When the exam was completed she explained, in detail, all of the results. Her explanation was clear and concise and left nothing lost in translation. I would highly recommend her to anyone in a second. Wait worth it!!!

Dr. Schwartz. Is a very thorough doctor who takes the time to listen to her patients. If it wasn't for her diligence I would not have been diagnosed so quickly with a disease that could have made me blind. Her suspicions were correct when she sent me to a specialist and I was diagnosed with Temporel arthritis or Giant cell disease. I will always be grateful to her. I have always be happy with my visit with her, as has my husband.
