What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Schwartz, MD
Reply
Though he clearly has a know-it-all attitude and plenty of qualifications, sadly he was flat out WRONG in a way that was dangerous to the patient, as proven by subsequent proper thorough medical testing and evaluation by a real, dedicated doctor. The patient was ultimately right and Dr. Schwartz was dead wrong. He refuses to listen to the patient and coldly dismisses anything that he doesn't want to hear. He's from that horrible breed of doctors who are very smart but WILLFULLY IGNORANT.

Dr. Schwartz is one of kind. As an infant until the age 27 I was tossed around to doctors who looked at me and had no idea what to do ...some didn't even try to help. He diagnosed my rare genetic mutation disorder after 27 years. He may be a bit quiet because he's listening to you He is very interesting and wise. Dr. Schwartz diagnosed me with a rare genetic mutation and immediately placed orders for treatment that gave me a life I've never had before. Highly recommended!
