What People Say About Dr. Kathleen Schwartz, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I work with doctors all the time. Dr. Schwartz is the most patient doctor I have encountered in Labor and Delivery. She is very involved with her patients during the labor process, unlike some doctors that don't care until it's time for delivery. There are times where the wait to see her is a little long, but it is understandable because she takes care of her own patients and doesn't rely on the other doctors in her practice to do so. I wish I could take her with me for all of my deliveries.

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 looking for an impeccable bedside manner, you may be disappointed. However, for her expertise and experience, that didn't phase me too much. HIGHLY recommended.

Dr. Schwartz is fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and knows her stuff. She acts fast when needed and is very patient. I went through a miscarriage and full term delivery with her. For my miscarriage, Dr Schwartz was able to see me immediately when heavy bleeding and abdominal pain started. After examining me she found that I had passed the fetus on my own at home. Dr Schwartz delivered the placenta right in her office. I was taken care of very well be her and her staff. For the delivery, I

I'm surprised to see some of the negative reviews above. Dr. Schwartz delivered both of my babies and in my opinion she is the best there is. If you are looking for a long drawn out appointment and lots of warm and fuzzies she may not be for you however when it comes to knowledge and expertise which in my opinion is incredibly important she's it. She also performed my hysterectomy flawlessly. I would recommend her to anyone and will never trust another as much as her. She's simply the best.

Had a few snags with scheduling and billing but all were corrected. She is an amazing Doctor and helped me have a successful Vbac. I will be seeing her again hopefully she won't be so overbooked next time we have a baby. Other than being too popular I had a great experience with Dr. Schwartz and recommend her to anyone facing a high risk birth.

Horrid. Her nurse, Kristen, was incapable of filling out insurance forms to be submitted. I had to send it to her 3 times as she didn't complete. Dr. Schwartz confused me with other patient. Did not spend the appropriate time with me and always felt like she was rushing out the door. Scheduled one time and then was called twice to change the appointment to another day. Don't they know people work and have to get off work. I have been there for five years and will be changing doctors.

seen dr. Schwartz for 2 of my pregnancies during my first pregnancy I wasn't very impressed. Give her a second chance considering all the good reviews, it was worse the second time around.she once confused me for a different patient throughout the appointment on a different appointment suggested i get a shot we had discuss in the previous appointment which I already had. At 36 wk i said iwas having contrations she said it was nothing , ended up having good baby next day. She didnt make the birt

I had my baby delivered by Dr. Schwartz at Scottsdale Shea medical center. We value her experience and her expertise. It was such a smooth experience for me and my wife. She is a fantastic Doctor and possess tremendous knowledge. Her expertise and skills were at display during the birth of my son.

Dr Schwartz has been my doctor for over 8 years now. She is amazing very caring and takes her time with you every appointment every time. I recommend her to any one who is in need of an OB/GYN. She delivered my second child and that was nothing less than perfect, it's a shame her front office is the worst. If it was not for her care I would have already transfered care for the reason alone. She is absolutely amazing!!!!!
