Our office prides itself on providing our patients with personalized, outstanding care. We understand that all of our patients are individuals, each with their own set of problems, questions and concerns. So we don't use a 'cookie cutter' approach, the services and recommendations we give are based on each individual's medical findings. We will never 'sell' you services that are not right for you, nor recommend any procedure or service which is not in your best interest. We want you to leave our office well informed of your situation and understanding the realistic options you have.

Stellar, look forward to visits. First class, treated with respect and the finest care and advise. God Bless You

I have seen Dr. Schwartz 4 times over a period of 8 years. (all for routine examinations), I usually wait an over an hr. to be seen by Dr. Schwartz. His staff does a preliminary evaluation, prior to seeing the Dr. Those staff are very good. My major objection is that after I have been evaluated by his staff, my experience has been that it takes me another hour before I am seen by the Dr. My time with him has not exceeded 10 minutes. I don't understand how he gets consistently so far behind

rarely do you find a dr. who shows exceptional care and follow-up with his patients..in my case i had a situation occur outside of the eye scenario and dr. schwartz was there to help me and assist me with my issues..he is kind, genuine, and very caring...my eyes are much better and my spirits are high because of his coaching and treatment approach...i would not hesitate recommending him to anyone needing his expertise..and the staff..they are just plain wonderful and caring as well...

He is a rarity in todays Medical Profession! He really cares about treating the eye(s) problems his patients bring to him, not selling lens, etc.
