Tampa, FL |
Came to Dr Schwartz for a second opinion on a broken wrist. Another surgeon said that my wife's only option to line her bones back up was surgery, this was not true. Dr. Schwartz was able to do so without surgery!!!! Dr Schwartz is one of the best physicians and surgeons I've ever met!!!! (I've worked with doctors for 13 years)

He is a phenomenal Person and a renowned Hand/Orthopedic Surgeon. His experience and his humility is astonishing as he care about what each and every patient is going through and choose the absolute best option to correct the problem. I could have not made a better informed choice for Distal Radius Fracture.

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.
