in Raleigh, NC |
He was rude and uncaring, just one of several patients he was seeing. After the procedure he did not address all my questions, nor informing me of information that I failed to ask. Without blood work he prescribed medicain without any explanation. I was told by my primary doctor that per the report Schwarz sent him, I needed to schedule a two week post visit. When I called his staff was also rude, treating me as if I was dumb. I will not return, seeking new doctor.

First colonoscopy procedure 15 yrs ago with Dr Ronald Schwarz had 2 polyps 1 being precancerous, both removed. Went back for 4th procedure on 10/25/16 with Dr Schwarz, another polyp was found. Thankful that I kept all 4 appointments. Very professional.

This was my 4th colonoscopy procedure by Dr. Ronald P. Schwarz, MD over a 15 year period. He removed 2 polyps 15 years ago, 1 was precancerous and I am thankful that I had excellent treatment then also on 10/25/2016 experienced same care with removal of another polyp. I would highly recommend Dr. Schwarz. Joyce Bass

I was impressed by the amount of time he spent prior to the Colonoscopy and also afterwards in his very busy practice. His calm and friendly demeanor put me very much at easy. I recommend him highly!
in Cary, NC |
Dr Ronald Schwartz is the absolute BEST! He was able to determine what was going on with my gastro issues right away. I had previously been to another physician who was clueless. I HIGHLY recommend Dr R Schwartz!
