Patient Comments (2)
Warren, RI |
My primary care doctor thought there might be a problem and I had an appointment with Dr. Schwengel within a few days. As it turned out, the condition was not serious. What most impressed me was the fact that he spent time with me, seemed genuinely interested in me, and was answered all of my questions. He spent a few minutes in the beginning of our meeting just getting to know a little bit about me. Had I needed further help, I would have felt in good hands.

Not happy w/him. Ended up with him as a referral for follow up visits after a emergency hospital stay. Spends maybe 20 minutes with me per visit, after the office staff takes my BP, weight and does the EKG. He has never specifically mentioned or discussed the EKG results. He brings up subjects/issues w/o asking if I have any questions. Ends visits abruptly without any opportunity to ask questions or address my concerns in depth. Nothing close to 5-stars here. I will be exploring alternatives
