Dr. Schwartz's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schwartz "Born and raised in the snowbelt of western New York, Dr. Schwartz has been migrating toward warmer climates since finishing high school. She graduated from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry. Nashville, Tennessee was then home for seven years. After graduation from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in 1987, her interest in gynecologic pathology led her to complete a residency in anatomic pathology at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Dr. Schwartz then returned to clinical practice and completed her Ob/Gyn training in June 1994 at the University of Florida in Gainsville. Dr Schwartz has special interests in high risk obstetrics, laparoscopic surgery and gynecologic pathology. Dr. Schwartz has a son, Sean, and daughters, Ellen and Louise.

Dr Schwartz delivered my first baby and I am seeing her for this pregnancy also. She is incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and attentive to concerns (if I felt something was off, she never dismissed me and always checked thoroughly). Sometimes she can be very direct and blunt, so if you're...more
