In March, I took a tumble when I tripped over a gopher hole, and fractured my Right Humerus (upper arm bone). I feel absolutely blessed to been referred to Dr. Schwartz. This woman is a gift to the medical profession and humanity in general. I am familiar with the medical profession and a little particular about who treats me and how. From the minute I met Dr. Schwartz I knew that I was in good hands and could trust her - she is professional, she is personable, she is one brilliant surgeon. The Advanced Practice RN, Maureen Benetti who works with Dr. Schwartz adds to the superior quality of care this practice provides every day. THANK YOU
