We saw Dr. Schwartz for consultation regarding a type of gastrointestinal cancer. He came with rave reviews for his knowledge & familiarity with recent clinical trials/medications. I would give him high reviews on intelligence. However, his bedside manner was horrible. Very blunt, cold, all business. In dealing with patients facing a terminal cancer diagnosis, although the outlook may be grim, there is a better way to deliver that news than what we experienced. He didn't seem to show any compassion for the situation. Granted, he may deliver bad news on a daily basis, but we would've hoped to have had him show an ounce of caring. Delivered the bad news, told us there was really no hope and told us to schedule a follow-up appointment. Needless to say, we didn't. Didn't like the 3 nurses at the nurses' station complaining about their patients in the open either. Could've done without that. Our family has many physicians in it, so we have high standards for how medicine should be practiced. Sorry to DMC, but can't say we were impressed with the oncology clinic.
