I saw Dr. Schwartz to rule out PVD. He was professional and personable. He had me do a test that was performed right there in his office. The technician was knowledgeable and friendly. He explained the results in great detail and relieved our minds with his kindness and knowledge. I highly recommend him. I just recommended him to my brother. Steve K.

My recent experience with Dr. Schwartz who helped me through a very difficult time in my life has been nothing short of spectacular. Not only is he in my opinion one of the best Drs. I've come across he also a wonderful human being who always took the time to make sure I was comfortable and informed every step of the way throughout my treatment. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend a friend or family member to him he is without question one of the very best at what he does.

Dr. Schwartz is treating my Mom who has a AAA. We looked far and wide to find a Dr. in our area. First seeing his associate Dr. Gorti, who by the way is great as well, referred us to Dr. Schwartz as he does not treat this type of aneurysm. Dr. Schwartz put us immediately at easy, explaining the location and how he would operate. Dr. Schwartz is compassionate, entertaining and funny, a great combination for a doctor who treats such pressing diseases. Highly recommend him......

I have seen Dr. Schwartz for an AAA repair a year ago. The care and professionalism was outstanding. I had seen multiple dr's to get second opinions, and decided to go with Dr. Schwartz as he made me feel the most comfortable with his bedside manner while explaining in detail about the surgery. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Schwartz to everyone and was glad that my surgery was a success! Thank You!

My mother saw Dr. Michael Schwartz after being newly diagnose with stage 4 endometrial cancer. She developed a blood clot in her leg and knowing Dr. Schwartz's excellent reputation, we knew that there was no one else we wanted to manage her care. He sat down with her and held her hand while he talked to her about her options. He is an excellent surgeon, but what sets him apart from others is his caring and compassionate nature. I would recommend him to anyone, as our experience was outstanding.

Dr Schwartz took a triple A procedure that would take 2+ hours into a surgery lasting 8 & 1/2 hours and saved my life. He is the best.

As a patient of Dr. Schwartz, I have always found him to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring. As an African American, currently under the expert care of Dr. Schwartz, having referred my father as well for treatment. Having read a negative review in reference to his character and as an African American, I felt compelled to write this review to highlight the fact that he treats everyone, irregardless of race in a fair and dignified manner.
