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.

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.

It was a great experience. Friendly, personable, really put all my worries at ease. He was up front about the risks of the procedure. He explained it all in detail before hand. Scheduling was easy for the appointment and super quick for the procedure.

Dr. Schwartz is an incredible Doctor with an excellent bedside manner. He performed an umbilical hernia repair on me just last month. the pain after the surgery was considerable, but my comfort was his utmost concern. he visited me a couple of times in the hospital, and truly put my mind at ease with his professionalism, and truly caring attitude.
