    He listens. That is amazing since I find most doctors don't take the time to listen to what you have to say. He cares. Genuinely cares. He also explains the good aspects of surgery outcomes and the negative ones as well. I trust his opinion.

    After suffering with severe pain for approximately 3 years, I was talking with one of my former home health patient, who had just had surgery performed by Dr Schwarz and she was doing beautifully! I decided that day, because I would ask for a referral for him to evaluate my situation. Long story, short, he performed surgery (L-4 & L5 fusion) the end of 2014! Almost 3 years later, I'm pain-free! He sure has my respect and gratitude!!

    Dr. Schwarz perfomed a cervical fusion on me about 8 yrs ago. I was scared, in tremendous pain and clueless. He is younger than my other MD's also but he came HIGHLY referred. I cannot say enough, everything and aspect of this was above excellent. Dr. Schwarz cares about the patient and takes time to explain any concerns. He reviews imaging every office visit. He gave me instantenous relief from nerves wrecking my daily life. He diagnosed a bone condition also and educated me on it.
