He doesnt care about his patients. Its so hard to get ahold of him. He then criticizes his patient if they are inquisitive. We transferred to another doc. He said the steroids were too strong that I was taking and that Dr Shwarz was suppose to do some followup tests that he never did. How do doctors get away with such recklessness??

I highly recommend Dr Schwarz.. His office personnel is very helpful and he is a personable and knowledgeable doctor. I had a procedure yesterday at the Texas Endoscopy and everyone there couldn't have been more helpful and reassuring that I was in good hands. I now have a gastroenterologist that I have the utmost confidence in.

He performed standard tests and interpreted them. He performed a standard examination. He drew standard conclusions. My main problem with him is that he referred me to Methodist Hospital for a gall bladder scan which in turn charged me three times what other centers are charging. They billed me $1300 for a simple gall bladder scan! Other clinics charge about $400. So I called Dr. Schwarz's office and the secretary pretended she didn't know this was going on. That was a lie.
