Dr Schwartz saved my life in April of 2016. I had a major heart attack and did not have five minutes to spare. I was in the operating room for close to 7 hours. He almost lost me 3 times.If it wasn’t for this wonderful doctor I would not be here today! His after care has been second to none. I truly love this man.

Dr. Schwartz was in Winthrop Hospital on his day off. The attending ER doctor grabbed him and showed him my husband's chart. My husband had just had a heart attack. This amazing man pulled a team together and took care of my husband without a second thought. He was very kind to me afterwards, explaining everything and putting me at ease. Very blessed to have met him!
