About as good as it could possibly be

I found Dr. Schwartz through referral from my PCP. From the moment I entered his office, everything was cordial and professional. Office staff fabulous. Everything was explained clearly. I had cataract surgery - lens replacement in both eyes. The results are amazing - 20/20 in both eyes now. Surgery was relaxed and easy. I think this doctor is extraordinary. I've been recommending him to everyone.

Professional, excellent care

I have never had a more positive experience with an ophthalmologist. I have had significant issues with vision and Dr. Schwartz and his staff have taken significant amounts of time diagnosing and also fitting contacts and glasses that accomodate my needs. Would highly recommend him.
