Patient Comments (4)
in East Lansing, MI |
I have taken my daughter to Dr. Shwayder for over 12 years. I have driven over 1.5 hours from north of Lansing to go and see him. He is a great doctor and very good with his patients. However my daughter turned 18 about 5 months ago and due to lots of stress her psoriasis have flared up. When I called down there to make an appointment just so we can get the last appointment with him and maybe a referral to another doctor, the receptionist flat out refused.

Even thought his wait time might be long, my sons have been seeing him since birth. He truly is the BEST DERMATOLOGIST for PEDS! WELL WORTH THE wait ANYTIME!
in Warren, MI |
Waited over a month for an appointment only to find out a week before my appointment that he had a meeting and had to cancel. Then come to find out I have to wait ANOTHER WHOLE MONTH before my son can be seen. Needless to say I cancelled the appointment and will be finding a new dr. Very unprofessional office.

I waited with my toddler in the lobby for over an hour and were forced to leave. My husband had to leave work to pick up my other son from preschool. This was the biggest waste of time. Who allows children to wait this long? Other disgruntled patients with small children and newborns were leaving after two hours from their appointment time! Beyond unprofessional and unacceptable. He must have a major ego.
