I have been a patient of Dr. Schwartz's for 6 years. In addition to being knowledgeable on gastrointestinal diseases, he is thoughtful, kind and patient. With a disease like Ulcerative COlitis which may be affected with stress, Dr. Schwartz always takes the time to ask about my life--work, family, etc. In addition, the staff is always courteous and accomodating. I would reccommend Dr. Schwartz to anywone.
