My son broke his wrist in 2014 and when I called to make initial appointment they got us in quick. Dr. Schwartz-Fernandes was absolutely awesome. He was great with my son. Dr. Schwartz-Fernandes explained everything to where we could understand. I recommend everyone to Dr. Schwartz-Fernandes. My son had to have surgery due to a cyst found at the break site. Fortunately it was cancerous. Dr. Schwartz-Fernandes was very sensitive with our needs.
