Doctor Schwartz saved my life

During January 2012 I received a very serious brain injury, my brain was bleeding very badly causing it to increasingly swell up and put more and more pressure against my skull. Thank God for Doctor Schwartz if he had not operated on me with the great expertise that he has I would not be alive today. Schwartz showed my wife and myself great caring and compassion during this during this extremely difficult time. We ill both never will never forget him. I can never express my most sincere gratitude to him for all that he did for me. He gave me a second chance at life. I will be forever in his debt. I wish Doctor Schwartz and his family all of the peace,love and happiness life has to offer. Sincerely yours with the deepest respect and admiration Paul Haney

thankful to have him as my surgeon

I had a large, rare type of brain tumor embedded in my brain stem. Dr. Schwartz correctly diagnosed it before my surgery and the pathology reports came back. Recovery was challenging to say the least and longer than he had estimated, but almost a year later I can say I am doing great, thanks to Dr. Schwartz's skill and experience. IMO he really cares about his patients and his passion for his work is evident. Also all the staff at the hospital were amazing, caring people.

Amazing and blessed!

October 13th will be one year since Dr. Schwartz performed surgery for the removal of a large pituitary tumor. We came across his name from the NYC top doctors. We decided to call and see if we can get a second opinion. We explained our situation and we were seen within a few days. Upon meeting him, he immediately made us feel comfortable and confident in his ability to remove the tumor and confident of a successful outcome while explaining all possibilities. We are forever grateful and blessed for his expertise as well as Dr. Kacker. The hospital and all of those we met and helped us were amazing! God bless all of you!!

Dr. Schwartz is my hero

My 20 year old son needed an extensive brain surgery on an emergency basis. The procedure was tremendously complicated. While diagnostic tests were being done, we were trying to decide which of the numerous neurosurgeons to trust with this most important surgery. Dr. Schwartz was referred to as the "brain tumor specialist." He was also the only one of the surgeons who had reviewed every one of my son's tests and had a surgical plan BEFORE HE EVEN MET US. Dr. Schwartz is my hero.

Life Saving Super Surgeon

Dr. Schwartz is an excellent physician. He is a compassionate man who took the time to answer every one of my many questions so that I would be as comfortable as possible with my surgery. I have been told by doctors since that I picked the right surgeon. I'm doing so well that no one could tell that I had brain surgery. I travel over 1,200 miles to see Dr. Schwartz and I trust him so much that I brought my mother to see him when she had a problem. His staff is extremely responsive and exactly what you would want when going through such an ordeal. I was incredibly lucky to find such skilled, kind and caring people. I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz, his staff, and WeillCornell Medicine.
