Dr. Richard B Schwarz has the following 3 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Don't know who wrote the previous review - my family and I found Dr. Schwarz to be highly professional, courteous, compassionate and skillful. When he was in practice in Huntington, he was very busy, and thus often delayed. But he was always worth waiting for. He also frequently had medical students with him, and seemed to be doing his best to infuse knowledge and passion for patient care into them. I am confident that he will be a great asset to LIJ.

the WORST doctor on the planet and a very poor excuse for a human being

He is beyond arrogant, lacks knowledge, and has no interest in prolonging human life. Stay far away from him and now that he is working for LIJ you should stay far away from any hospital affiliated with the North Shore LIJ health system. It was a terrible decision for them to employ such an animal. He has nothing positive to offer!
