New York, NY |
I am so happy to be back with Dr. Schwimmer. Because of an insurance change, I had to unfortunately stop using this excellent doctor--However, I just changed my job and can use him once again. He is thorough, caring, and patient. He listens carefully and remembers what you previously told him. His office is efficient and helps out with the necessary paperwork. I strongly recommend this wonderful doctor.
