    He is probably competent but very disrespectful of a patient's concerns, actually insulting. I needed a post operative second opinion. Lack of interest could be because it was not a surgery. After hours of testing and photographing your eye the actual exam is done by a resident doctor. Afterwards "The Great Man" enters and speaks to you for literally 2 minutes. He interrupts you if you attempt to ask a question instead makes his pronouncements and leaves. I would never recommend him to a friend
    Excellent practitioner, pitiful communicator. Doctor deciphers your chart, collaborates with his Residents pertinent patient test results/status just outside of your purview, then enters where you're waiting to be seen. By then, he's already done his due diligence & literally has no time for 'you', even scolding the patient & requesting an Ophthalmic Resident to 'deal' with this difficult patient. He needs to reconsider his mode of operation & include the patient in his comprehensive review!

    Dr. Schwartz is a caring, extraordinarily skilled doctor. He is very thorough, always takes time to answer questions, and one can easily tell that the younger doctors who are part of his team have a deep respect for him. He literally saved my eyesight in a very complicated situation, returning my vision to normal when others doubted that could be done.
