Pinellas Park, FL |
My overall impression of Dr Schwartz was that I was wasting his time being there, as if my condition wasn't critical enough for him to review. He was quite abrupt, dismissive of my reports, skimming over disc damage and labeling it all arthritis. After the P/T evaluation I heard nothing for weeks. After calling to check about it, still no word after another 10 days. I gave up.

Very thorough exam. Great "bedside" manner. Takes time to go over all issues. Excellent.
in Largo, fl |
I saw him 3 times for back pain and hip bursitis. On all 3 appointments, he was a full 1 hour late. On the 2nd and 3rd visits, I had to repeat my entire condition as he did not remember, nor did he consult his notes from the previous visit. There was no physical examination - just did xrays, steroid injection, incomprehensible diagnosis, then sent me to PT. After all that I had only marginal relief, I am now seeing a chiropractor and pain is so much better!

I have no idea what this MD actually does----I have low back pain even after a laminectomy and spinal fusion--he hit my knee and ankles with a hammer to check reflexes and sent on my way. I am seeing a pain management specialist for a medial branch block as a pre-cursor to radio frequency ablation.
