Dr. Ben has operated on me. He is a character and very rough with patients. His bedside manners are very poor. The post-op care is worst too. His office staff is not nice at all. They are short-tempered and very rude. I will never recommend my family members and friends to this doctor.

I had my surgery with Dr. Schwartz. I had several complications and needed two more surgeries including surgery to repair my ureter and bladder. His office never returned my calls and I felt that he left me high and dry. I will never ever send anyone to him.

He operated on my wife to preform a hysterectomy. Surgery didn't go well as planed, was going to do it laparoscopy but switched to a open surgery. her recovery wasn't going well. Dr. Schwartz never came out the night of the surgery to speak to the me or the family instead called on the hospital phone to explain the operation. Never saw him that night. Although the recovery wasn't going well Dr. Schwartz never came to see her and after 8 days final showed up for a exploratory surgery.

Meeting him for the first time he seemed like a nice guy willing and determined to help me. And to find out why I live day to day in horrific pain...after going through multiple tests in one weeks time and going back for test results, he was rude,did not answer my questions, and insulted me. Did not go over my records prior to the visit, and talked over me when I tried to explain my symptoms. Trying to give me medication without a diagnosis but did not try to help stop my pain...dont recommend

I found the whole experience with both Dr. Schwartz and his staff to be HORRIFIC! Dr. Schwartz was incredibly egotistical, demeaning and dismissive. He might be a good choice for patients who fit right in with his usual scope of practice, but for me, who had something rare and a little complicated, what he suggested, as it turns out, would have caused me further problems. I would NEVER RECOMMEND Dr. Schwartz to any of my friends or family!

With all the negative he sees daily he always has a smile and kind word but more importantly he gets straight to the point and goes out of his way to ensure you will be healthy and cancer free. He will take all the time you need when you visit the first time and have to absorb the "C" news and will go through all the procedures but be aware he doesn't sugar coat it or spend an enormous amount of time with you during the routine follow up visits when you are doing well. This is okay with me

Dr. Schwartz and his PA's are wonderful. I trust all of them completely even though I have only just met them. If you call the office after hours, a PA calls back right away to discuss your symptoms. In my case, she then called Dr.Schwartz who returned my phone call within 20 minutes with instructions. I wouldn't want any other team helping me through my case.
