Sorry for your experience. I have always found him very professional and caring. I came to him because another Dr. treated me just as you voiced in your comments. However, Dr. Schwarz has been excellent.

Does not listen to patients' feedback, requests, or problems. (after all, we are "just patients") I believe he downgrades women's report of pain. Does not follow through in a timely manner.

I can’t compliment this medical group and Dr. Scwarz highly enough. I met with a PA for a few visits to try to determine what was wrong with me but she recommended a colonoscopy since my symptoms were not being relieved by what was being prescribed. Dr schwarz performed my colonoscopy and determined immediately that it was colorectal cancer. He was so kind and compassionate when he had to tell me this bad news. And all of the nurses and techs were so kind and compassionate too. Highly recommend!

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.
