I accompanied my aunt to her appointment recently because she had not been feeling well and she wanted me to translate for her. After we checked her in, we were made aware of there being Spanish speaking staff members more than qualified to do the translating for us. It was really nice to have been able to be with my aunt for moral support and not worry about anything else that wasn't her.

My experience with Dr. Schwarz was fantastic. He took his time with my examination, listened to my concerns, and made sure I understood my medication regimen. He gave me clear and helpful instructions to follow. The office was cleanly kept and managed well by polite staff.

World Class Doctor with A+++ Bedside Manner My father suffers several conditions including heart-failure, Diabetes and initial stages of Alzheimers. After I answered a few questions as care-giver, Dr Schwarz engaged my father as if they had been best of friends for years. I realized he was testing dads cognitive function while genuinely caring for the patient. Dr Schwarz is a World Class Cardiologist with the bedside manner of an old-fashioned Country doctor !!!

Been a patient of Dr Schwarz's for years, he's helped me with various health issues along the way, some serious some not so. He's the best out there in my opinion, a very decent man and one of the most sought after Doctors in LA, even see him on TV these days!

Dr. Schwarz is a very rare physician scientist that is able to relate to and communicate effectively with his patients. As a top cardiologist, he also has a very caring and warm heart. I trust my family and friends to his care. His training as a physician scientist gives him a unique perspective on finding the basic contributors of cardiovascular disease rather than just prescribing a drug to mask the symptoms. We need more physicians like Dr. Schwarz

He found what took other doctors years to diagnose! Amazing physician. Hands down the best cardiologist in this region. Overall, the whole staff made me feel important and safe in their hands! I would most certainly recommend to anyone!

I was recommended to Dr Schwarz from another Physician who spoke very highly of him. I brought my mother to him because none of her doctors for the past 20 years could regulate her blood pressure. She developed 99% of plaque due to this. We could not believe that after only one visit with Dr Schwarz that he would solve this on going problem and normalize her blood pressure. My mother adores him and she never felt better! My family thanks him for helping her live a longer life!

Dr. Schwarz is a wonderful cardiologist who cares about his patients and embodies the compassion and trust we look for in a doctor-patient relationship. My father is a patient of his and the way Dr. Schwarz helped him rehabilitate and improve his cardiac health since the onset of his hypertension and subsequent heart attacks left a lasting impression. I applaud Dr. Schwarz for seeking novel ways to better treat his patients with state of the art technology and cutting-edge research.

I had to get cardiac clearance for a procedure and was recommended Dr Schwarz by a friend who is a patient. I went to his Culver City office. They got me in quick because it was urgent. The practice was busy and very large, the office was modern and ever so clean. Dr Schwarz was incredible, ever so polite and extremely knowledgable. He really took the time to explain everything to me about the test I needed. His office got the results back to my PCP the same day. Excellent Doctor and office

I still can’t believe what an amazing experience I just had with my new doctor. I was referred to come see Dr. Schwarz in Murrieta. He and his team are respectful and show courtesy to all their patients. They take the time to not only explain but to also listen to you. I felt that Dr. Schwarz and his team took the time to study my medical history and examined me thoroughly to meet my medical needs. My pervious doctor visits don’t come close to the excellent service I received with Dr.Schwarz.

My 59 year old mom had not been feeling well for a long period of time. She had uncontrolled blood pressure, high cholesterol, anxiety, and was a diabetic. So you could imagine the state of panic our family was in. She didn’t seem to be getting any better and her PCP wasn’t doing anything different to treat her condition. Someone then recommended us to go visit Dr. Schwarz in his Murrieta office for better treatment. After examining and reviewing my mom’s medication, he said something was very w

I'd been to see various doctors about my heart palpitations, they all just seemed to think I was making it up or that it was anxiety. Dr Schwarz really listened to my concerns, he ordered tests and blood work, turns out it was hormone related (low estrogen) so he treated me for that and told me that my heart is perfectly fit and healthy which was a great relief. I saw him at his office in Murrieta, the staff were lovely, I had a 15 minute wait because he was doing emergency heart surgery on an
