Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Don’t waste your time, he wants your money. So many red flags here…. First, his wife is his assistant and said she used to work for Fox News and is only helping out because it is hard to find help. He didn’t introduce himself. Didn’t listen to my questions. He was obviously uncomfortable during the ultrasound of my labial varicose veins (I’m an NP-this is your job, act professional). And the last straw was that his recommendation was for “3-5 $495 sessions a piece, that may not work, and you may need coiling.” After reading his website, which says that coiling is the preferred treatment and is 90% effective… tells me he was trying to get at least $2,500 out of me, knowing I would need another, more EXPENSIVE procedure. Hm. No thanks.

Went to see Dr. Schwartz based on his reputation in the industry for some green veins behind my knees. I was nervous b/c my mom has bad veins, and so did my grandma. After a visual exam and then ultrasound exam, he explained my condition to me and how a laser treatment would help. Subsequent treatment was simple with very minimal recovery time, very happy with how my legs look and feel.

***BAIT & SWITCH*** My wife and I were excited to work with Premier Vein & Body, we were given a firm price quote by the front desk and as I am always skeptical with high margin items, I was sure to reiterate the quoted pricing and what came with it and take notes at the time of booking, the front desk confirmed everything to be true and my wife booked an appointment for the following week. At the end of the same week the person who booked us called my wife and said that she had misquoted us and that the price would be 22% higher than what was originally quoted, upset my wife canceled the appointment and asked the doctor to review the issue and they said they would get back on Monday. At around 1:30 on Monday, we had not heard back from them and my wife was bothered about this (especially since she had made arrangements for work and a sitter already) so I called and got the person who originally booked the appointment (she was very sweet and I believe made an honest mistake) she agreed

I went to his KS location before he lost his license to practice in KS and was forced to move to MO "per another reviewer. The "Dr"?? and his assistant came in, he asked his assistant where SHE felt I needed facial filler injected, I thought to myself "who's the dr here?". Once done the "upselling " began. I was told the Groupon wouldn't supply enough of the filler to do a complete face and needed $200 more filler. My face was swollen for 4 days afterwhich I looked EXACTLY the same as before . WHAT A SHAM!!! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY with this "Dr".

I told Dr. Schwartz I have degerative back disease that blocks my ability to walk. He nevertheless recommended that I walk as much as I can to exercise. This demonstrates lack of common sense and medical incompetence. Further, he gave me the impression he was looking down on me and acted condescending.

Dr. Schwartz is an excellent vein specialist- very professional, very strait forward! I had him perform vein surgery on both legs and I am a very satisfied patient. Do not expect being " cuddled", if you want a lot of small talk and side conversations- this place is t for you. If you want a professional who is focused on his work- you found your perfect doctor! Highly recommend for surgery but NOT for injection for your face. My Botox injections didn't bring any desired change, unusual for me
