Doctor operated on my torn meniscus February 2016 and I have not had one problem since. The aftercare was fantastic. He is no longer coming to Rockdale clinic-so my husband and I are going to see him at the Georgetown clinic

Dr. Schwertner was excellent with my 83 year old mother. He was informative and took care of her knee pain. His office staff were all very nice. His nurse too was very helpful and patient with mom. I would recommend Dr. Schwertner to anyone wanting to receive great care.
