Patient Comments (5)
Plano, TX |
I waited more than 1 hour to see the doctor and he spent less than 2 minutes with me. He wanted to charge me $370 for a brace/boot that I can buy on Amazon for less than $50. I don't know if there are still any ethical doctors out there but I still highly recommend against this one.

Very knowledgeable.
in Frisco, TX |
Dr. Schwartz inaccurately diagnosed my on-going knee problem. I needed to have a partial knee replacement and was told not to and to try an osteotomy on my knee instead. I had over 3 opinions on my knee before finding a doctor who correctly diagnosed and fixed my knee with the partial replacement I so desperately needed. I am a younger patient 37 and was told by Dr. Schwartz that a replacement would not help me. Here I am 4 years later in the best shape ever! No thanks to him!
Plano, TX |
I am extremely dissatisfied with the care I received from Dr. Schwartz. He spent a very short time with me and gave me no solution or care for my pain. He charges exorbitant prices and is more about turnover of patients than compassionate care. I would never recommend this doctor.
in Allen, Tx |
This skilled doctor has patched me up on more than one occasion, helped me regain my active lifestyle after injuries through the years, and is a credit to his craft. He explains things well, takes the time to answer my questions, and knows that I like to know the mechanics involved in my surgery and post op expectations. I'm an involved and informed patient and this is a good surgeon. My opinion is also based on other care that I received prior to coming under the care of Dr. Schwartz.
