What People Say About Dr. Frederic Schwartz, MD
Reply
Dr. Schwartz is one of a kind. He is a gifted and exceptional neurosurgeon. And, just as important is that he is thorough, explains the issues simply and spends a significant amount of time addressing how the procedure -- in this case -- a disc removal with fusion. Soon after the operation I had no pain, dizziness, imbalance and nerve issues. I now have my quality of life back because of Dr. Schwartz!
