Fantastic! Shows concern
Merrillville, IN |
Absolutely great experience.
Crown Point, IN |
I would like Dr. Schwartz to administer the shots like he did my first visit. My last visit I had an assistant administer the shots and it was very different from when Dr. Schwartz did it and had difficulty with pain and bruising afterwards. I do have confidence in Dr. Schwartz as my doctor however.

Very passionate about his specialty. Best in lake county but not cheap.

Dr. Schwartz and his team took excellent care of me. I injured myself on Sunday, saw him Monday, and had the surgery on Tuesday. This type of injury was time sensitive to ensure a full recovery. Due to his prompt attention and his excellent surgical expertise, I feel that I recovered much quicker. In addition, I was pleased with a different surgery that he performed on me prior to this injury. Post op visits were above expectations. I would recommend Dr. Swartz and his staff to anyone in need.

Went to see him for help with pain from a previous surgery. He told me to find a new job there's not much he could do for me. Sent me away with a noncontolled pain medication I asked for since I can't take narcotics like noro for the work I'm in and to call when I need refills. 1 month later I needed a refill and he declined it saying I needed an appointment. After he told me the first time there's nothing he could do

Dr. Schwartz did a total shoulder replacement on me and it turned out beautifully. Absolutely no postoperative problems. It was almost pain free. He took the time to align the implant perfectly.
in Lake Station, IN |
Dr. Schwartz has performed five different surgeries on my wrists and hands over the past 15 years and I have not regretted a single one. All surgeries have been very successful and have made my quality of life sooooo much better. I had very little use of my hands before my surgeries and I am so happy I found him to help me out so much. Thank you and I would highly recommend him.
in Chicago, IL |
My experience with Dr. Schwartz was EXCELLENT!!! He was my second opinion and thoroughly happy that I switched Dr.'s when I did. Not sure where I would be if I did not change. He was thorough and straight to the point in what needed to be done. Thank you Dr. Schwartz!!
in Schererville, IN |
Dr Schwartz performed rotator cuff repair surgery on my right shoulder 3 years ago, then the same surgery on my left shoulder just recently. Both surgeries went well, both times i went back to work ahead of schedule. Also he performed carpel tunnel surgery on both of my hands, once again excellent work! I would recommend this man to everyone needing like surgeries, i could not have been more fortunate to find this wonderful Dr!
in Saint John, IN |
