Dr. Schwartz's Care Philosophy

Having a mother who died of cancer when I was 15 years old, I was exposed to the difficulties cancer places on an individual at a very early age. As my education continued I was drawn to the field of cancer treatment and research early in my training as a surgical resident. When my training was over, I looked for an opportunity to join a growing medical center with a commitment to treating cancer patients.

Dr. Schwartz spends time and explains everything. He is also open to questions and listens to my comments. I would recommend him as a surgeon.
Albuquerque, NM |
Dr. Jess Schwartz is an excellent surgeon and caregiver. I was referred to Dr. Schwartz due to a complicated cancer surgery on my chest. The surgery went well, recovery and follow-up by Dr. Schwartz and his team was thorough and caring. I am very pleased with the outcome.
in Santa Fe, NM |
Dr Schwartz has no bedside manner. He is short and abrupt. However, he was recommended to me by other pulmonary & thoracic professionals and proved to be very capable and concerned with my condition. I was not looking for a friend, I needed a competent surgeon and Dr. Schwartz was excellent. I would not go bar hopping with Dr. Schwartz, but I felt very comfortable and secure in his care. He needs to treat his co-workers more kindly.
