What can I say, he has helped me, my wife, and some of my close friends. He does excellent work, and really does care. He does look a little over-worked at times, but I almost think he likes it. Either way, definitely 2 thumbs up!

Operated on me, and has become a fast friend. I love him, he tells it like it is, and is very frank. Try him out and see for yourself.

Plain spoken, explained my problem like a great mechanic would, and didn't seem like he was full of BS. Appreciated his frankness. He did great with the work that he did when he had to operate. Again with recovery, I always knew what was going on because he hid nothing and explained everything. Good communicator.

He called me the night after my procedure, and this was much appreciated. He has a level of caring, and follow up (he actually left his cell phone number with me to call for any issues). It also helps that the surgery went great and the recovery was easier than he made it sound like it. Great experience, the kind of doctor I think more should be like.

Dr. Dan was awesome to work with, very personable, explained well the problems, encouraged other opinions, and didn't really pressure me for surgery. His staff was great as well. Thanks Doc!

He repaired and completely got rid of my shoulder that would pop out of the joint basically if I sneezed! I love him, did great work, and very easy to talk with!

I injured my shoulder in a car accident, and had a hard time getting someone to take me and my injury seriously. Dr. Schwartz listened incredibly well and ordered an MRI. Sure enough he found the reason for my pain! He was so confident that he could relieve it, and sure enough he did! Now that nearly 6 months have passed I can tell you I really don't think about my shoulder at all! I owe so much to him, and cannot recommend him enough!!!

Dr. Schwartz took excellent care of my son, when he dislocated his shoulder playing ball. He has been doing great for the last few years. I honestly forgot about him until I fell off my mountain bike and separated my shoulder. While I didn't require a surgery, Dr. Schwartz took great care of me and did a great job explaining what was wrong, and why these things are treated certain ways. I really do think he is the best in Seattle!

I love Dr. Dan! He made my left shoulder so much better, and it has stayed that way for the last 5 years! I recently saw him for my right shoulder, and we dealt with it without an operation. He just reminded me about how rare he is in the medical field that you find a normal person that just goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. He is so great, you must meet him!

We drove from Boise, Idaho to see Dr Schwartz about a shoulder surgery because one of our friends said he was the best around. They did not lie! We are sending our friends in Idaho now to see him for anything! totally worth the trip!

THis is way overdue, but had Dr. Schwartz fix my rotator cup after someone else did not do the right job. He did a great job, and since I have fully recovered my shoulder. Dr. Dan and Melissa were able to fix me with a camera inside my shoulder instead of with a large incision - like the first time - and I felt like my recovery was quicker, and better yet, it actually healed this time! I strongly recommend Dr. Schwartz!

Dr. Schwartz and his team did a great job repairing my shoulder after a climbing accident. He's got a great personality and isn't shy being a normal person around his patients - even though he clearly is an expert craftsman. Love this guy, because he gave me back my arm! Cannot say enough great things!

Dr. Schwartz was kind to my mother when she broke her arm, fixed it, and restored her ability to raise her arm. He was been nothing but professional and gentle with my mom. We speak dearly of him prior to each visit, and really enjoy his demeanor.

I had my rotator cuff fixed by Dr. Dan and he not only got my shoulder back to splitting wood, and shooting a bow and arch for hunting, but also was good to deal with. He treated me like a normal person, did not talk down, and made a point to communicate well. He even called me in the night after the surgery on the shoulder which I appreciated. I highly recommend.
