I found Dr. Schwartz by looking at profiles, seeking someone to handle my new complex medical condition He rapidly understood the risks and the lack of oversight and took everything in hand He worked out a plan, made referrals and rapidly gave me peace of mind Unfortunately, insurance coverage threw a link in his well thought out plan But he took that in stride and soon made alternate plans Not only that, he listens and has a very good bedside manner So rare to find all of those skills in one doctor OUTSTANDING!!!

Leigh Ann in none – Feb 14, 2019
He actively listened and responded to every question and concern. Allowed me to ask questions to get a full understanding. However, it would be helpful to perform a series of tests to rule out possible causes rather than making conclusions based on patients symptoms.

Crystal Ferguson in Southington, CT – Feb 24, 2017
Dr. Schwartz performed laparoscopic surgery on me last week and so far, so good. He has great bedside manner and really eased my anxiety before the surgery. My recovery, though pretty painful in the beginning, has been smooth and he gave me as much time to recover as I felt comfortable before returning to work. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat! And as a side note, his office staff have been incredible.
