Very friendly and helpful.
Dec 3, 2019
The first time we had an appointment we waited 30 minutes before the nurse told us he was running an hour late. We rescheduled and at the second appointment we waited over an hour. Dr. Schwartz was disrespectful to me. He made fun of me for taking notes at my son's appointment! I was shocked. He also said my son has poor posture from me "look at the way you slouch". I have called our pediatrician to warn her from recommending him. I'm very glad that we don't have to go back.
