Hadley, MA |
I absolutely love Dr. Schweitzer! He is the most caring, compassionate doctor I have worked with other than my PCP at Mass General Hospital. They are equally wonderful! I wish that I could see Dr. Schweitzer as my primary care physician. He's certainly been like one in the 2 years I have seen him for fibromyalgia. He's helped me with problems unrelated to fibromyalgia when he could refer me to another specialist or to my PCP. My only frustration is getting to see him for an urgent matters.

Dr. Schweitzer is a skilled and caring Dr. He takes the time he needs to problem solve with you and find the best direction toward improving your situation
Dr. Schweitzer is kind, compassionate and takes the time to listen to your concerns. He is very knowledgeable and shares his knowledge without being condescending. Having an illness like rheumatoid arthritis is a constant roller coaster and having such a great doctor keeps me calm.

Dr Schwitzer is competent caring and extremely attentive. I would praise his ability and manner as excellent. He has been my physician for several years and I have complete confidence in him. Jack Millman Worthington, MA

Dr. Schweitzer is one of the worst physicians I have ever encountered. He is uncommunicative and does not follow up on treatment or patient results. I would not recommend him to anyone!
in Granby, MA |
If I could chose to have 1 Doctor who would take care of all my conditions, it would be Dr. Schweitzer. He listens, and he is compassionate about his patients overall wellness in every aspect. Very thorough with care plans and willingness to explain treatment/diagnoses for complete understanding. Office is friendly and Nurse is prompt with returning calls & messages. He is the Doctor that you say to yourself, He doesn't get paid enough to do his job for only the money, he genuinely cares.
Holyoke, MA |
Over the past decade, I've found Dr. Schweitzer to be a caring, supportive, & proactive physician. He is thorough & cautious in his care, & he answers all questions patiently and in an easy-to-understand manner. On several occasions when I've had particular difficulty in dealing with my auto-immune disorder, he (or his nurse) has followed up by phone a few days after my office visit to check on my progress. I've never known another physician to take this extra step. I strongly recommend him.
