He never check me out physically never checked my strength the way i walk but his report was totally wrong. I cudnt get a copy of chart note but his repirt was so wrong in his dictation he lied about SAID HE DID preform physucal test in me but yet said i have many physical problems. I had a witness w me and he very said it was c5 c6 disk. I was there 10 min. But his report saud he preforned type of tests aND saud my neck was ok. Just to protect thw dr who dud my sx thats not a 2nd opionI would not recommend anyone goin to a dr.that us only gonna tell u one thing but in his notes lie thus is legal doc

I was given complete confidence when meeting with Dr. Schwartz for my initial consult. This confidence made me feel that I had no need to fear the procedure that I was about to embark on. It was the best decision I made and I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz to any person seeking same.

A caring and highly competent neurosurgeon. Dr. Schwartz operated on my cervical spine, and the results were terrific. I think recommend him without reservation.

4 months after craniotomy I cannot say enough about Dr. Schwartz. Though formerly an LPN I was apprehensive when I learned I had 2 brain tumors. Dr. Schwartz is highly skilled and decisive, but easy to talk to, patient and kind. He helped me realize surgery was necessary on the growing meningioma, the sooner the better. Surgery went extremely well and I was home in 2 days. Now I understand that if the acoustic neuroma grows, I will be safe and in good hands. I trust him with my life.
