in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Schwaegler is a rock star spine surgeon! Dr. Schwaegler has operated on my lumbar spine 5 times--I had a series of spinal injuries over 25 years--and he completely relieved me of excruciating leg and back pain after conservative treatment failed. My back feels as good as it did when I was 18. On top of his surgical skills, he is incredibly compassionate and caring and he works crazy hours to help his patients. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

My husband and I were amazed at how attentive the entire staff was! From Nichole at the front desk to both Dr. Hernandez and Dr. Schwaegler. Listening and really spending a great deal of time going over everything from the start to where we were at that time. Extremely caring! They (both doctors) even called on Christmas Day to check in on my husbands condition after surgery a few days prior. Highly recommend them!
