One of the finest human beings and physicians I've ever met and I've spent a lifetime dealing with fellow physicians. His impact on me personally was overwhelming positive in dealing with my kidney failure, my need for a successful kidney transplant, and my subsequent care over a half dozen years. I routinely refer similarly situated patients to him and routinely see the same level of care and outcomes. Thank heavens for physicians of this calibre. This is the very top of the pyramid.

Dr. Schwab is the most Competent, Dedicated and Caring Physician. I'm a doctor myself and I travel from California almost 2000 miles to Rochester to see Dr. Schwab. I am honored to be under his care. Dr. Schwab LITERALLY SAVED MY LIFE. He is the BEST Physician at the best hospital in the World. Dr. Schwab is the doctor that other doctors go to for their own care. Dr. Schwab is the BEST of the best.

I think he didn't believe I had the symptoms I described, and his bedside manner was poor. He did run tests for me.
