I had an appointment with Dr. Schwartz a few months ago. His staff were friendly and professional, but Dr. Schwartz was condescending. I felt like I was not listened to and the appointment felt very rushed. I canceled my follow-up appointment with him to find someone else.

Dr. Schwartz was rude and impatient with my 95 year old father. His PA Karen misdiagnosed a simple athletes rash as something much more serious. I would never send anyone to this practice.

Dr. Schwartz is exceptional as a dermatologist: knowledgeable, capable and considerate. I had a cyst removed today and he was kind, considerate and very professional. I recommend him highly as he has treated my problems effectively. You can't lose making him your dermatologist!

Horrible experience. Everyone was very rude. Didn't even make it to see Dr. Schwartz because they wouldn't bill me my copay. Bad practice not putting patients first. Not going back.
