Impossible to get an appointment in a reasonable time BUT The visiting room and office is always empty and yet it takes forever to be seen. Once inside you’re rushed and he’s out the door before the visit is even finished. The nurses and desk staff are rude , useless and can’t deliver a simple message. They never return calls even for serious issues. Has his nurses deliver the results of serious negative test results. I guess he’s to busy. Maybe a good doc at one time but now just a small player in the Nuvance medical bureaucracy

If you are looking for a caring, sensitive and extremely smart doctor, this is your physician. My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Schwartz for over a decade and he has always treated us with great care and he takes the extra time to spend and explain our concerns. We have recommended Dr. Schwartz to our family and friends and wholeheartedly do so here.

Dr. Schwartz not only is a wonderful physician but a wonderful person. He takes the time to make sure all my issues are met and that I am doing everything I need to do to keep myself healthy. He cares so deeply about his patients and medicine in general. He is a great guy and anyone would be lucky to have him as their doctor!

Bad overall experience making appointments and with the doctor. Staff is not helpful, always rush you off the phone. Same treatment from the doctor. Speaks very fast and loud, practices no discretion and appears annoyed with questions. Office visits last less than 5 minutes.

Please use caution when choosing Dr. Schwartz. He was my Doctor for 15 years- and up until a year ago, I was satisfied. I have low platelets- a condition I've always had. The blood draws were done at my physicals- then the samples sat on a truck to Massachusetts- according to my results. I spent $1400 on a hematologist who told me my platelets were normal. We moved to California- I had my blood work done today at my physical & the results in hour- my blood work is completely normal. Be warned.
