I look forward to my quarterly visits with Dr. Schwartz where we not only discuss my health but also how are families are doing. These conversations are my true reasons for my visits. But don’t tell the doctor that.

Dr. Schwartz is a sustainer of my husband’s and my longevity. He has been alert to the shots and tests that I have needed and elicited the feedback data that interprets my blood work! He has asked questions that alert my focus on safety and exercise and listened to my thoughts on seeking a local cardiologist after my going to Boston for many years and initiated a referral! He is professional, personal and precise in his conversation and always wise counsel. We are grateful for such a beloved and highly proficient professional to imprint and secure our journey at the age now of myself at 82! Mary Robbins
