in Kalamazoo, MI |
Wonderful! Smart, attentive, a great listener, and highly empathetic. A real professional in the best way.
in Mattawan, MI |
Dr. Swartz unexpectedly and without notice, left his office at Borgess Rheumatology. He left hundreds of patients. Many were dealing with severe chronic pain. I, myself, after seeing this doctor for a long time, had to scramble. While his office tried to deal with the flack, there was a complete lack of organization. An informed letter of his departure came out at least two months afterwards. Records were terrible.
