    Dr. Ellis recently performed a robotic assisted hysterectomy on me. He is always courteous and has a wonder bedside manner. From pre-op to post-op, he was very easy to talk to and answered all of my questions thoroughly and made sure I understood everything that was going to happen. He followed up with me after the surgery with phone calls to check on me and my status. Dr. Ellis is the 3rd Schwartzenburg that I've had the privilege of "working" with and I've never been disappointed.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Schwartzenburg for several years and have always received the highest level of care. He is semi-retired now, but I was greatly relieved to find that he still does surgery consults and surgeries. He performed a cystocele/rectocele surgery for me in March 2017. The knowledge, skill, care, and compassion shown to me (and my husband) during the whole process was above and beyond any I have ever experienced. I cannot stress this fact enough! I would highly recommend him.

    Dr. Ellis performed robotic assist hysterectomy on me in January 2017 and everything went great! I had no complications from the surgery and my incisions are healing very nicely. I highly recommend him for surgery, he is very personable and is an expert at what he does. I love how he took the time to discuss the best options for the issues I had and just knowing I was in the best hands for surgery. Thank you Dr. Ellis for helping me to feel great again!

    Dr. Ellis has been my doctor for 30 years and is an incredible doctor with an amazing bedside manner. I was elated to learn that, although he retired from his primary practice, he is continuing to perform certain surgeries. I highly recommend him.

    I have been going to Dr. Schwartzenburg for 20 years and hands down he is the best doctor ever. He treats every patient like family while delivering professional, excellent care. He delivered my son in 2003 and still asks about him 13 years later. I recently had a hysterectomy before the holidays and Dr. Schwartzenburg called himself to check on me himself before Christmas to make sure everything was going well. I trust his judgment as he has never steered me wrong. I recommend him to everyone.

    Dr. Ellis Schwartzenburg is a wonderful doctor, and such a genuine, kind man. He has been my doctor for over 27 years. He delivered my three children as well as performing surgeries that I required. I have never felt like I was just a number. Dr. Ellis has always spent plenty of time with me to explain things or answer questions. He is very easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Ellis. His nursing staff is wonderful as well. I would highly recommend him.

    This is one of the finest physicians I have ever been to. I have been a patient since 2008 and recently had surgery performed by Dr. Schwartzenburg. Knowing of his outstanding reputation I was not very anxious about the surgery. He stayed with me every step of the way. My hospital stay was one of the smoothest I have known. After the surgery I am better than ever. Dr. Schwartzenburg truly practices the art of medicine as it was meant to be. I wish all physicians were like him!

    Dr. Ellis delivered 2 of my children. He was always so attentive and caring. Recently, I needed to undergo a total hysterectomy. Dr. Ellis went above and beyond to take care of me. Due to other health issues, I had a minor post-op complication. My phone calls to his office were returned promptly and his nurses are absolutely amazing! You can tell that he truly cares. I can't say enough positive things about him. I work in the medical field and have never met a more compassionate physician.

    I have 32 years of experience in women's health.  I have seen my specialty advance with new innovations giving women options other than traditional hysterectomy.  I have been amazed with the success of simple outpatient endometrial ablation procedures to minimized a women's heavy periods commonly found in the years following  her pregnancies.   If you feel you need to consider a hysterectomy for your condition,  I will help you decide your best surgical option.  I'm highly experienced in both vaginal or Robotic hysterectomies.
