Awful. Denied care due to outstanding balance from previous hospitalization.
Not happy with Doctor Schwartz at all. He never calls you back. Called his office 6 times for my results and most of the time you get a answering machine. Finally when they got back to me it was his assistant you gave me wrong information. Then I'm told I have to go for a special MRI in 3 months. Been trying to set that appointment up for two weeks but same as before you call and just get a answering machine and when I got threw they told me the Doctor not available for a week. just great.
Awesome doctor!!!! Very caring and knows what he is doing!
