I want to recommend Dr. Schwarcz to anyone who has respiratory problems. He is a fantastic doctor and has vastly changed my life. I was recently diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and diabetes. I am now on oxygen therapy and doing physical exercise thanks to the encouragement and support of Dr. Schwarcz and his team. Thank you!!

After many hospital visits, no doctor had been able to specifically diagnose me until Dr. Schwarcz saw me. I was about to be sent back home while I had a constant cough and chills throughout the day. Dr. Schwarcz saw me that same day and diagnosed me with Tuberculosis; I immediately started treatment. I am very disappointed with the doctors who were about to send me home. Dr. Schwarcz saved my life!

Quiero agradecerle al Dr. Schwarcz y su equipo, por la atención dedicada a mi madre en los cuidados intensivos. Quien ya está en la casa de regreso y muy bien gracias a Dios y a los doctores y enfermeras que la atendieron y cuidaron con tanta dedicación. Gracias y que Dios me los bendiga! Familia De la Rosa.

Dr. Schwarcz saw me at VBHS when I was admitted for possible stroke. He never followed up on negative results from CT scan on lung. After 2 months, his office called to suggest I immediately come in. When I came in, they said I had to get a PCP referral since 2 months had past. After getting referral, I saw Dr. Rodriguez. He requested I get another CT scan immediately. His office said I had to get another referral. He suggested they get this done ASAP. Still waiting!!!
