I had my first hip done about five years ago by Dr. Schwappach and I knew who I wanted to do my second hip and now I am very pleased again with the results. I would recommend Dr. Schwappach and crew with the highest regard. Thank you all for everything you did for me.

Dr. Schwappach was a wonderful doctor. When I broke my wrist and first saw him he was great at comforting me and giving me immediate confidence in his ability to make me better. His staff was always caring and made me feel comfortable. When I called for questions they were wonderful in assuring me it was okay and getting answers

Knee replacement performed with excellent results. More range of motion than I've had for many years and can stand without pain indefinitely. Dr Schwappach sought best options for my case and was candid when options became limited. Took time to address questions and concerns. His office staff demonstrates same concern for patient success and Dr Schwappach. Top notch. Thanks!!

I was sent to this dr by the hospital, i can honestly say i am very distraught over the care i received or shall i say non care. I sat in his office from 1:30- 4 pm saw him a whole five minutes if that for him to say because of him knowing my previous doctor who no longer takes my insurance he was not able to help and was out of his expertise!! well excuse you me hence the word orthopedic!! then hands me a piece of paper with the diagnosis of cancer, nice way to find out im sick... Heartless!!

He was rude, condescending. Every thing I asked about was met with a snotty comment. He actually told me I AM THE SURGEON. At end of appointment when I expressed frustration as to how long it was taking for Doctors to decide what I needed done he said I have patients that have lost limbs, you aren't so you need to get over it Totally disregarding how I felt.

Very poor experience. Long waits, incomplete exam. Provided with Patient Information and Patient Instructions that were not only erroneous but fabricated as well. Follow-up visit was worthless. Worst MD experience in quite some time, possibly ever!
