What People Say About Dr. Ronald Schwartz, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My husband has Crohn's disease, and had seen multiple doctors before we found Dr. Schwartz, who we like very much. Each time we see him, he truly takes the time to listen to my husband. He has made every effort to help him through trials of various medications and non-surgical interventions. I am surprised by the other reviews; the lack of administrative follow-through on the forms should not reflect on Dr. Schwartz's quality of patient care. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Awful. It's as if he stole someone's coat, badge and shaved his head and is pretending to be a doctor. I'm not convinced he is a real doctor. He doesn't know the first thing about gi problems.

He seemed to doubt everything I said to him. I had results faxed over on a Monday, and by Wed. he still did not have the results from the network of people it had to go though to be digitized and put in his box. I dropped off a physical copy Wed. and MN Gastro still has not acknowledged receipt of the forms by Friday.
