Patient Comments (1)
in Overland Park KS |
I have seen more than 24 physicians/specialists over an 8 year period of time; all of which could not diagnose me. I have spent thousands of dollars in repeated diagnostic procedures and was left feeling like I was crazy (all MD's giving me the same diagnoses yet remained ill 24/7 x 8 years). Within 5 minutes Dr. Schwartz listened to me, diagnosed me and began treating me. I do have some permanent damage due to being left improperly diagnosed but I am 80% improved & living again. Thank you!!
