What People Say About Dr. John Gschwend, MD

I had all of my 3 boys delivered by Dr. Gschwend. I had an emergency c-section as my son went into distress. He was wonderful. I did not even know he was performing the surgery until he was almost done. He was so kind. He called me at home the day I got home to see how we were doing. I have continued with Dr. Gschwend for 15 more years. Now I am peri-menapausal. I have so many issues that I was not expecting such as migraines, mood swings, and many more. He is so kind to me always.
