Treated well, Kept in the loop. I have no complaints.

Dr. Schwechter is a great doctor and an excellent surgeon. He explained all the details of my knee replacement beofore surgery, Afterwards, I had some complications, he came right away to check on me and see how I was doing, as well making sure I understood what had happened. I'm so grateful to him because with his level of skills my post op pain was manageable, and my scar is barely visible. He's available for any problem that may arise. I whole-heartedly recommend him!

I chose Dr. Schwechter to be my surgeon because of his attentiveness to my needs, his impartiality, his bedside manner, his advisement, and understanding. I also appreciate his innovative view in this ever changing technological world we live. I felt completely comfortable with him and his staff.

I originally visited Dr. Schwechter in 2014 because of severe pain in my left knee and moderate pain in the right. He began by treating me with cortisone shots, which helped at first, but gradually lost their effectiveness. He later tried Monovisc, an injectable gel. It also worked at first, but wore off after about a month. I finally decided on total left knee replacement surgery. It is now five weeks after the surgery, and the pain is gone. I'm walking without a cane. Great job!

I was somewhat impressed with the repoire of the doctor. Felt comfortable enough to return to see him again. However, I was turned off by the staff. Not so warm and cordial which I've heard otherwise through referral. The wait time was ridiculously long and the lack of consideration when scheduling appointments; no choice in the matter but rather they schedule and you just show up.

Very patient-centered. He explains and talks to you. Gives the best options. Recommend highly.

in Yonkers, NY |
What can I say, but fantastic. From my initial visit, and all during the process.Very attentive, and concerned for your well being. Explained the whole process to my hip replacement from beginning to end. He makes himself available to you, just about all the time. Even on his day off, he makes sure he stays in contact with you during your hospital stay, by the use of facetime. Thank you Dr. Schwechter for all your patience and concern. As a result of this procedure, I am pain free..Go Yankees!!!

I first met Dr. Schwechter several years ago and was seeing him for hip problems.He was actually very comfortable to speak with about my hip pain. Finally it came time to have it replaced and I was very nervous about having the surgery. This past January I finally did it.He was so caring and explained everything to me. Just came from my appointment and he was truly happy that all went well.He makes a patient feel so confident in his exceptional skills.So pleased he was my surgeon.

Very sincere and knowledgeable surgery went well with no complications and I would highly recommend him to others I know if they where experiencing similar issues as myself.

I was recommended to Montefiore Orthopedic Group for my hip condition and was assigned to Dr. Schwechter. He was totally professional and attentive to my condition and explained in great detail the expectations regarding the hip replacement surgery. He explained what to do regarding the physical therapy afterwards and how the prognosis should be if I followed the instructions. Started walking about 5 hours after the surgery with the initial physical therapy. Dr. Schwechter and staff amazing.

I came seeking a solution to my hip and back pain. I was examined, diagnosed and told I was a candidate for a total hip replacement. I attended a breakfast meeting with staff that would be on site the day of my surgery and other supportive staff that would be part of my aftercare. I even saw the actual hip that was going to be measured to fit me!!! I had the surgery performed, walked with assistance within 24hrs, STILL WALKING, NO ASSISTANCE!!! My best friend has already sought his help!!!!

THANK YOU DR.SCHWECHTER
in Bronx, NY |
Dr. Schwechter's level of professionalism and patient care served as a major catalyst in moving me beyond my pre-sugery fear and throughout my successful full hip replacement. His advice was always on point and timely. Other than not having surgery at all, this was the most satisfactory resolution to my condition that I could have hoped for. Dr. Schwechter and his team were an answer to my prayers. Thank you!

Dr. Evan Schwechter was highly recommend (from another specialty surgon) and I'm so very pleased with my results. I found Dr. Schwechter calm, attentive, accurately predicting the course of my Total Hip Replacement, supplementing our discussion with reading material, plus the "team process" of care, put me at total ease. After my two week check-up - X-ray shows perfect placement - having surgical/recovery pain, but no hip pain. Six weeks later, doing light workouts, even running a little. WOW!
in Bronx, NY |
Dr. Schwechter told it just the way it was. I needed a total hip replacement. He put out a strong vibe that I knew I was making the correct decision. He did a great job and had me walking about 5 hours after surgery, without any pain. Everyone on his team was professional. I would recommend Dr. Schwechter to my family & friends. I'm really glad to say that after three years of constant pain that i'm pain free walking.
in Bronx, NY |
Dr. Schwechter saw me on two ocassions to provide his professional advice regarding some chronic knee pain which I was experiencing for several months. At the second and last of two visits with him he referred me to another surgeon in his office who he stated would be able to perform a surgical procedure on my knee. During this exam Dr. S was extremely brief with me quickly dismissing me and leaving the exam room abruptly without explaining my condition, diagnosis or alternative treatments.
