 |  Knowledgeable, but rude.  |  show details

If you're looking for a very smart and informed doctor about anything dermatology related, then this is a great person to go to as he seems very informed about the dermatology field and will answer any questions you have. I would strongly recommend not going to this doctor, however, if you choose to not vaccinate your child as he will basically call you an idiot and that you are playing with your child's life. I would not recommend him to anybody I know that has children, choose a different doctor if you don't vaccinate.

Very knowledgable about dermatology. Attacked my decision to delay vaccinating my infant although it was completely unrelated to the reason he was being seen. Had difficultly focusing on actual condition due to his insistence that I was setting my child up for death or serious injury by not immediately immunizing him. He had a lot more to say about my vaccination choices than he did about the presented dermotological issue. I found him to be condescending. I felt like he thought I couldn't understand because i look very young. Overall if you are looking for a knowledgable dermatologist he is great. But expect to be belittled, and if you don't vaccinate, choose a different doctor.

Horrible bedside manner. Don't see how this guy is a pediatric Derm. Doesn't seem to like kids much, no patience for my child or myself. Condescending attitude. Insulted my parenting and my gender. Rude.

Of all the doctors I have seen (Have seen too many) can easily say that Dr. Shwayder is simply one of the best. Great attitude, rapport, compassion, and expertise. Highly recommend him. He is simply competent and top-notch.

Our daughter Amy was treated at about 4 weeks of age for a hemangioma. We had been told once it appeared that we would have to just wait and see what happened. As a child I had a VERY large hemangioma that never went away and was very large. Dr. Shwayder treated it by freezing it in sections and we went for about 4 treatments. By the time she was 1 year old it was virtually gone. Many people are disfigured for years with hemangiomas and some suffer for longer - - we are SO THANKFUL that Dr. Shwayder took such good care of our girl and she is a BEAUTIFUL 5 year old now!!! He is VERY FUN, is GREAT with KIDS, has a great sense of humor and great bedside manor - with both KIDS & PARENTS!!!
