Nothing Special

I'm not impressed with Dr, Schwartz. He's quick to toss out diagnoses that aren't always what the actual problem is. A mother knows best - so don't be afraid to disagree with any doctor you or your child sees. I had to bring my child back twice in order for him to diagnose an ear infection, needless to say, I wasn't the happiest of parents. I'm on the hunt for a more qualified pediatrician in the area.

Dr. James Schwartz review

Dr. Schwartz is an ok doctor. His bedside manner leaves a lot of room for growth. He needs to work on patience and being less dismissive. It appears he really dislikes giving specialist recommendations and will spend and exceeding amount of time attempting to diagnose an issue. It appears that frequent repeat appointments are the income of the practice. If an appointment runs long I have been told to schedule for another date.When calling the office he doesn't speak to patients, neither does his PA so you must leave a message. She tends to take 3-7 days to return calls IF she returns them.The receptionist isn't unfriendly, nor a bowl of sunshine, however she is efficient.
