    Dr Schwartz was very informative and helpful. However the garage could be more accommodating to let you know what floor to get off and once entering the building more signs. It is very confusing.

    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.
