Almost solely changing dermatologists because of the office staff, particularly Z, an RN. Not one of the girls who answer the phones can give you any info about insurance questions or anything else... Only Z can & she's not here today but she'll be in tomorrow. She claims she returned my messages but never did, then was rude when she finally did! Kim is not the greatest either, she spends less than 2 minutes with you after you've driven 25 minutes to the office & waited 30 minutes to see her!

I had a rash on the front of my lower legs for 3 years. My previous GP had given me an ointment for it which made it a little better sometimes. Finally I made an appt for Dr Schwartz. He was abrupt and arogant.. When I asked what he thought it was he said you mean what do I know it is? Edema in your legs. Next week I went to my new GP who said no way, she thought it was my BP drug which I started about 3 yrs ago. She switched it and it went away. So much for his knowing!

1) The office staff is reason enough not to see this dr. If an emergency at your work requires you to miss an apt (and call to let them know beforehand), they will still charge you a $25 no-show fee because it wasn't 24 hours notice. HOWEVER, it is okay for them to make you wait up to an hour for your apt w/out recourse. 2) If you call to speak to the dr., the nurse will call you back. 3) The dr. prescribed a med w/ harmful potential. If not for other dr visiting in, I would not have known.

I requested a prescription refill more that two weeks before I would have run out my current supply. They told me I'd have to make another appointment before they would approve a refill. The earliest appointment I could get was a month past the time my current supply would run out. They could not care less about that and did nothing to accommodate my situation. This was a drug this exact office had been prescribing me for at least 10 years.
