The most caring doctor I have ever met. His is truly an expert in the field of spinal surgery yet still treated us like we were family.
Our patient experience is our top priority. Thank you for sharing!

Dr. Schwartz was amazing with our daughter. We had been to another doctor that did not listen and was very dismissive. Dr. Schwartz listened, continued to track our daughter's scoliosis progression, and then recommended surgery when the it became essential. The surgery was easy to schedule, and we had very open communication from his office the whole time. He did a tremendous job with her spine, the incision and post-op care. I would VERY highly recommend Dr. Schwartz!
Thank you for sharing your experience.

Happy with surgical outcome, but it took too long for my surgery to be scheduled/ decided. We attempted non surgical plans first, but it took too long inbeteeen the revaluations which led to 4 more long months of suffering. This led to prolonged weakness and recovery time. I would have rated him higher in the communication area had he spoke to me in the office at my post-op appointment. He did not, he just had his NP talk to me. His NP is great though and I am sure she gave him a report.

I would like to add to my previous review posted on Feb. 28th. -- My husband and I are ballroom dancers. I have not participated in dancing for three years because of severe radicular pain. Now I know I will pick up my passion. Dr. Schwartz has given me my life back!

Very informative, compassionate, patient, and, most of all, a GREAT SURGEON!!! Fixed my back pain and was very personable and kind.
Thank you for the review, Janet!

I offer this review up with heartfelt honesty. I had severe / constant back pain for nearly five months before being referred to Dr. Schwartz. I was promptly scheduled for surgery and was communicated to at the highest level all through the process and after.....Some 6 weeks later I am pain free and walking correctly and am now able to do things that I have not been able to do for some time. THANKS to Dr. Schwartz and his TEAM!

Had a c 5-6 fusion done in 1998 and have NEVER had any pain from it since then. Got the results of my MRI on a Friday and was operated on the next Monday. It was a life changing surgery and I would recommend Dr. Schwartz to anyone with spine problems.
in Frankfort, IN |
He is very kind and easy to talk to. We are fairly new to the diagnosis of Scoliosis. He listens and answers my questions. The wait time is an hour every time. I don't like having to wait an hour, for a 5-10 minute visit. We live an hour away.
