I visited Dr. Shwayder on urgency of care and was willing on faith, research and online positive reviews to take a chance and I scheduled an appointment. During my first and only visit I communicated to Dr. Shwayder my concerns and urgency and his response lacked empathy and I felt he was talking down to me. During the visit he made off color jokes and his style of communication appeared odd and unprofessional. We all deserve the best care possible!
