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.

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!

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.

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.
