Horrible physician. He missed a fracture of my heel bone for over a month and had me walking/limping on it. He thought I was "overreacting" until I had an MRI ordered. He needs to go back to medical school and learn a few things, including listening to his patients. I would never recommend him.

Don't let his youthful appearance fool you. Dr. Schweizer is as knowledgeable and caring as they come. I had to lose my leg and he took the time to discuss my options and the possible outcomes, not just post-surgery but lifetime. He made sure I was ready and prepared and sure I was making the right decision. I'm sure my excellent recovery is due to his skill in the operating room as well as bedside. Mike Gurkin
