Patient Comments (4)

Is she Dr. King or is she Dr. Schwarzschild? Whichever one she is ----- she deserves a less than favorable review. I would not recommend her.

Very brief appointment, less than 5 minutes. She didn't have the time to look at the problem. Came in, glanced, and headed for the door... I will find a different doctor. Gave me a prescription that the pharmacist questioned. Don't make an appointment with Dr. Melissa King.

Dr. Schwarzchild is attentive and very knowledgeable. She was able to recommend the appropriate treatment plan for me and my husband and we see her several times a year.

Curt, condescending. Full freckle check took no time at all, I did not have to fully disrobe. I've had something removed every year for years so no confidence in this exam.
