March 7, 2020 1:32 AM

Due to an unexpected office emergency, wait time was extremely long and I was getting anxious since this was the 1st visit to this office and the unknown was scary but everyone was very nice, helpful, and apologetic over the wait time.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

It was excellent.

October 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Everyone was very nice attentive, the doctor was super thorough & actually listened to our concerns. He didn't pressure us into surgery, he discussed our options & was very professional. So much better than our previous vascular surgeon.

September 13, 2019 7:00 PM

I met Dr. Schwartz in the emergency rm. at Luth. Genl. Hospital at approx. 9: p.m. 8-29-19. He had been called in by his staff to check their findings - he agreed with their findings & just before midnight I was in emergency sugery performed by Dr. Schwartz. He saved my life.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

In Jan. of 2014, I had a had a near fatal health scare an attack by an ank. staph infection. Due to other complications, I was under the care of multiple teams of doctors for the next 6 months. During that time, up until the date of this visit, I've seen approx. 40-50 different doctors, out of all I have see, this doctor is in the top 5 of all! I can not say enough how much respect I have for this man!

February 6, 2019 6:00 PM

Good experience.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

I did like Dr. doctor.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Very professional and very concerned regarding my needs.

December 5, 2018 6:00 PM

Took me two months to get the appointment.

November 27, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Schwartz has been and continues to be, kind, thoughtful, courteous and patient. He shows respect to all of my concerns. He explains thoroughly and I do recommend him to my family and friends when necessary.

November 25, 2018 6:00 PM

Very professional and caring.

November 8, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Schwartz was kind and professional. I believe I spent more time with nurse than actual visit with doctor. He seemed rushed to get to next patient. Because it was my first visit, I think more one on one personal attention was needed. My opinion.

November 5, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Schwartz was very kind & explained everything very well. X is excellent!! Very helpful, very professional!!

October 18, 2018 7:00 PM

This was my the first visit to Dr. Schwartz. Like him very much he ordered for me one test more. I will see him on 10-23-2018, and he will tell my about results.

September 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Schwartz was courteous kind and caring . I would recommend him to any and all of my family and friends

August 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Schwartz is the BEST vascular out there. He always answers my questions so I can understand, his prompt and personable.

August 3, 2018 7:00 PM


June 27, 2018 7:00 PM

My original reason for seeing him has improved as we discussed. He told me if I had any reoccurrence, to notify him immediately. He's great!

May 19, 2018 7:00 PM

This was my first visit and interaction with Dr. Schwartz. I found him to be very considerate of my time, apologizing for running late and very focused on strategies to improve my healthcare needs. He began treatment immediately and referred me to a hematologist for additional evaluation. His office staff gave me information about the new doctors and made the appointment for me. I was very pleased with my visit.

May 7, 2018 7:00 PM

The doctor is the best, the staff is the most caring!

April 16, 2018 7:00 PM

I look forward to feeling better and hopefully the upcoming procedure will do this for me. The MD seems confident that it will help, put me on the road to that.
