I have been a patient of Dr. Schwartz about two and a half years and he is the most compassionate doctor I have ever had, which is very important when you're dealing with pain constantly. His office is spotless and runs like a clock. The wait time is 5 to 10 minutes and his staff is very courteous and very articulate and never make mistakes. I have had many procedures done, and his staff always checks on you. I recommend him all the time and everyone I send loves him also.

Kind, empathetic and wise, Dr Schwartz has done more than ease my snapped spinal cord, his epidural with steroids have restored my ability to dance, albeit upside down. His conservative approach uncovered new degradation of my spine and I will always be in his debt. When I needed help to achieve first position again, he ordered his student to twist my leg when I could not- and I have been able to keep the joint flexible. He can also refuse, but always for the right reasons.
