    Unfortunately, my child did not have the same wonderful experience with this Dr. He was a little too quick to prescribe certain medications to a very young patient that should NEVER have been prescribed to him. This changed his life FOREVER in the worst way.

    Sadly Dr Schwartz passed away in April, 2020. He was a kind, gentle man who really knew his psychopharmacology. Always ready to listen, he would explain the meds he put me on. Blessings to his family.
