What People Say About Dr. Barbara Schwartzberg, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
We named her "Barb the Butcher". She worked on my wife on a simple breast surgery and basically created a hematoma and massive scars. More to the point, she is intransigent, old, set in her ways and behind standard of care. We would NEVER recommend her to anyone. Go to the University, find out what is relevant before going under her knife.

Dr. Schwartzberg is my guardian angel, because she is guiding me through this labyrinth since my breast cancer diagnosis on January 6, 2016. Although I am over the hump with the mastectomy, and the first chemo treatment (with mediport), I know that Dr. S. and Desiree will continue to be my angels of deliverance.
