    in Seattle, WA |
    Dr. Schwartz is a gifted surgeon with a kind soul. He truly cares for his patients with a great sense of humor along with clear explanations of procedures. My husband and I were even showed pictures of what was going on during my surgery. Post-Op he is even more impressive with true concerns with healing and fully explains the amount of time and work (PT) it takes for healing. Dr. Schwartz's evasive techniques in surgery are incredible and well deserving for an award for medical excellence.
