Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Schwartz kept me from being paralyzed. I owe him every walking step I make, and every road race I can jog in for the rest of my life. And yes, I still lift at the gym.

I was referred to Dr. Schwartz by another neurosurgeon who said "he is the absolute best" and the doctor he would use if he ever needed brain surgery. That was all I needed to hear. Dr. Schwartz is kind, compassionate, funny, and conservative in his approach. He explains all of the pros and cons and directs his plan of action to the patient's best options. I am so grateful that he is providing my care.

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.
