If you’re a woman with gastrointrstinal issues you should avoid this doctor. He is quick to judge and tell you it’s in your head instead of doing the actual work to listen, test you and find out you actually need antibiotics and a special diet. Lazy and judgeamental. Made me waste months. Avoid!!

Had procedure earlier today with Dr. Schwartz at Endoscopy Center on K Street. Doctor is a pro, anesthesiologist also was great, support staff excellent. In and out in a minimum of time, everything seamless. Very pleased with experience, couldn't ask for any better. No hesitation whatsoever recommending to family and friends.

I have a chronic digestive problem that is, at times, serious enough for hospitalization. Dr. Schwartz is amazing! He is extremely good and patient. He has been my doctor for a number of years and I can always count on his returning calls to discuss various issues I am having and whether it is time for a hospital visit or an office visit.
