Dr. Schwartz is an outstanding individual, professionally and individually. He is extremely hands on with his patients, very attentive and knowledgeable. He takes his time with his patients and is very detailed when asked any question. My husband and I are very lucky to fortunate to have a person who really puts you at ease and does just exactly what a doctor is meant to do. Anyone who needs a top notch professional in his field would be in the best hands available to be one of Dr. Schwartz patients.
Being a new patient of Dr Schwartz, my mother received a sense of comfort, in being put at ease from the moment she was first attended to by the good doctor. He responded sincerely to our questions and concerns, made easily understood.[ She is 93 yrs old] We felt he went the extra mile for us in stride.
1995 - I was a 42 year old woman and suffering severe pain in my chest. Went to the ER and Dr. Schwartz came into the room as I passed out. Due to his skills, medications, and some fancy paddles I survived. Dr. Schwartz not only had the skills and knowledge to deal with my heart he also found the underlying answers to other symptoms I was plagued with for years (ie, faintness, anixety, etc.) I was told by other doctors, prior to Dr. Schwartz, "to see a shrink"! But Dr. Schwartz did not think I was insane and sent me for the appropriate medical (not mental!)tests to find the answers. He listens carefully and explains things in clear terms. I highly recommend Dr. Ira Schwartz!
