He’s the 2nd best doctor I’ve ever seen and the absolute most friendly. Knowledge? He’s got it. Skill? That’s his middle name. Bedside manner? He is gentle and reassuring. Explains everything thoroughly.

Went with my 95 yo father to discuss the results of an in lab sleep study with Dr. Schweip. He didnt introduce himself by name, but did shake my fathers hand. Goes on to explain about apneas and the need for further testing but doesnt reveal ANY specific details regarding my fathers situation. I asked him for a copy of the sleep study report and all of a sudden it's like a switch is flipped. He became the most belligerent individual I have ever had to deal. Most unprofessional doc ever!

Terrible bed side manner and doesn't really explain anything to you. I was having issues with my CPAP and he told me to stop using it for a month. I was then told to try using it again and to schedule a follow up. When I told him that I still had the same problem, he dismissed it and told me he would see me in a year. My sleep apnea has gotten worse and I found another doctor who doesn't just ignore me.
