Dr Schwarz is a wonderful and caring doctor. He makes you feel so at ease when you go see him and when you have to have a procedure. He has a great bed side manner and he is a doctor that spends a lot of time with you and works hard to find out what is going on. He has been my doctor for several years and has always been there for me when I need him. He has a wonderful caring staff and it is such a pleasure to go to him. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do in caring for me.

The entire experience at RMG Gastroenterology was a pleasant one. Everyone at the office is extremely nice and helpful. You feel like you are at home. My pre-op nurse (Gloria) was a good as you could ask for. She made me feel important and she took extra time to make sure I was comfortable. Dr. Schwarz was very courteous and professional. This was my second trip to the office and I have recommended everyone I know that they should use Dr. Schwarz and his staff. Thanks so much!

He rushes through and doesn't read your chart. I was prescribed a drug, which I knew I couldn't tolerate. I wrote it on the chart. He didn't diagnose but guessed and prescribed an expensive and potentially dangerous drug.

Beware... Dr. Schwarz is a good doctor. However, Raleigh Medical Group does a very poor job of informing the patient of the cost of your procedure. They do not review full cost with you before putting you under. Their only interest is to do your procedure and get you out if there. All other medical businesses feel responsible to completely inform you before the procedure. This group does Not. I hold the doctors responsible for this poor business model. Ask for another provider. Beware.
