24/07/14 5 5 5 5 I met with Dr. Schwarcz after experiencing issues following a dermal filler injection by another doctor. While the other doctor did not address my concerns, Dr. Schwarcz did a thorough exam of the problem area, assessed my symptoms, and made a clear diagnosis. I found him to be very professional and friendly. For any other dermal fillers, I would go to Dr. Schwarcz.

27/06/14 2 2 1 1 I had a terrible experience here. He told me that the procedure was non-invasive but I left his office with major bruises on my skin. When I complained, he said it was absolutely normal. I knew right away that I had made a terrible mistake since it was not my first experience with fillers and I had never reacted that way before. It took more than a week for the bruises to heal, even though he assured me that I would be fine in 48 hours. Even after I recovered from the bruises, the skin under my eyes appeared hollow and saggy. I called again and asked for another visit, and his assistant brushed me off. There are many good doctors in New York City's Upper East Side and he is not one of them -- I strongly recommend that you avoid him and do your research.

03/02/14 1 1 1 1 I've had eye surgery and filler treatments with Dr. Schwarcz and have found him repeatedly nice but not such satisfying results. In hindsight after I went for another consultation elsewhere, I realized how hasty and carefree his approach is. He doesn't have the experience that I found elsewhere, nor does he take careful protocol with medical photos or the eye and patience for doing good filler treatments. In NYC especially, a lot of these doctors just want to make $$, but don't put the quality into their work. He was a prime example of that.  Respond

11/07/13 4 5 4 5 Dr. Schwarcz is very good with fillers. Beware of Sculptra though with any doctor. I did not have a good experience with it and still have lumps in my chin over a year later. It is not for everyone.  Respond

08/07/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Schwarcz is the best. He is meticulous, very attentive to detail, does excellent work. He also listens well and takes time to explain procedures. His staff is helpful, and the overall experience is the best you can hope to have.  Respond

28/02/13 5 5 5 5 I don't normally post comments online but i was so impress with my consultation that i was compelled to go online and leave this comment. My mother and I had seen Dr Schwarcz for a consultation regarding bags under the eyes. I am very big on customer service and I must say that I had an awesome experience from the front desk to the actual examining room. I felt at ease with the Dr Schwarcz. He took his time examining my eyes explaining what procedure was necessary. Turns out that he determine that i don't need surgery, that what i was experiencing was natural and told me some natural remedies and elevation should relieve the problem . I was very impress with that prognosis. From that moment I new Dr Schawarcz was not about the money like some practices are, but the well being and safety of his patients. Even though i did not need surgery i believe he provided me with the best outcome for my situation which was not to have surgery.  Respond

04/01/13 5 5 5 5 It has been six months since my facelift with Dr. Schwarcz. Really what an outstanding result!! I don't look pulled or done as I was worried about before. I had a facelift done by someone else 5 years ago and have never been happy with the results and my ears were weird looking after that surgery and my neck looked lumpy. Dr. Schwarcz fixed my ears and now I can wear my hair up. I see no scars, and my neck finally looks great! I am really happy with his results and really liked every interaction with him. He was thorough and very patient with all of my questions. I highly recommend him.  Respond

10/09/11 5 5 5 5 Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have been underneath Dr. Schwarcz’s surgical hands. I was recently riding my bicycle and was forced to stop short, catapulting off my bike & face-first into a bus. I had multiple facial broken bones and lacerations. Even so, I feel like the luckiest person in the world for two reasons. First, I was wearing a helmet (no brain damage). And second, I was referred to Dr. Schwarcz. After consulting family members who are MDs, it was clear he was the right choice. He trained under the tutelage of some the world’s best plastic surgeons and operated in trauma situations on recognizable faces. While many doctors warned of the risks of facial deformity , I could barely now even notice that I had an accident. In addition to his surgical talents, he is a highly caring and personable doctor dedicated to providing holistic care. The helmet saved my brain while Dr. Schwarcz saved my face. Needless to say, I give him my highest recommendation.  Respond

29/08/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Schwarcz is a miracle worker. He was the 8th specialist i went to see, as all the other surgeons did not feel competent enough to perform my type of eye and facial surgery; luckily one of them told me "if anyone can do it, he can"- and he sure did! He is thorough, skilled, and perfectionistic about his work. bedside manner and professionalism. Yet, he is very warm and personable. i was amazed at how he did not try to 'sell me' on procedures and provided multiple options, including the least invasive (least expensive) ones. I'd trust him with my loved ones, and highly recommend him!!! in addition, his staff is friendly and Robin worked diligently with my insurance company to ensure that i was compensated.

15/08/11 5 5 5 5 I have just had the last of a series of Sculptra injections to fill out significant hollowing in my face. Dr. Schwarcz is a wonderful physician. At the initial consultation he gave me his complete attention, explained to me his recommended treatment plan and fully answered all my questions. He is very friendly and considerate--he truly cares about the well-being, physical and psychological, of his patients and is an extraordinarily patient doctor. I have grown to have great affection for him and I am deeply grateful for the way that he has helped me to feel better about myself. His staff is quite wonderful and easy to deal with and they do not over-schedule him. I recommend him without reservation.  Respond

07/08/11 5 5 5 5 Amazing doctor! I really researched someone to do my eyelids. I read about all these horrible complications that can occur and wanted to do my best to find the right doctor. Dr. Schwarcz was extremely approachable, he spent a long time with me and explained many different options out there and why the one he was recommending for my eyelids were most suited for me. I did both upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. He did an amazing job! I look natural, just as he explained before surgery my eyelids dont have that hollow look like I was frightened about. He did a fat transposition method for my lower eyelids and they look smooth and natural. If anyone is looking for a great eyelid specialist in NYC, I'd urge you to see Dr. Robert Schwarcz.  Respond

27/02/11 3 4 5 5 I went to Dr. Schwarcz for Restylane injections to my lower eyelids. I had some hollowness in my left eye and the doctor and I agreed that Restylane would be the best option. Overall, I thought Dr. Schwarcz was very friendly and professional and I was satisfied with the results of the Restylane injections. He is very knowledgeable about beauty treatments for the lower eyelids. He spent 15 minutes advising me on how to treat the skin on my lower eyelids. If you are thinking about blepharoplasty or restylane for the lower eyelids, then I think Dr. Schwarcz is a very good choice. He has very good bedside manner. My only critique is with his nursing staff, they were not very attentive to my needs during and after the Restylane injections.  Respond

04/11/10 5 5 5 5 What an amazing doctor! I felt very comfortable with him, and he did not make me feel bad for asking a thousand questions. He is very calm, friendly and inviting. I went to him after my son (who is very picky) got his nosejob done by Dr. Schwarcz and we were both very pleased. I did my upper and lower eyelids and a face and necklift. I love it look like I did 20 years ago! Very natural no ugly scars and not a as long of a recovery as I thought. Dr. Schwarcz is a very caring and talented cosmetic surgeon. I very highly recommend him. He did a great job!  Respond

07/06/09 5 5 5 5 My friend recommended this doctor after she had her eyes done by him 5 months ago. I really liked him, he explained everything to me and allowed me time to make sure I understood everything. He did a wonderful job on my facelift. My neck looks tighter and younger and I am not self conscious in photos anymore. I highly recommend his work and enjoyed every interaction with him. He called me at home on multiple occaisions to check up on me.  Respond

16/09/08 4 5 5 5 This doctor was my third opinion for eyelid revision after having a botched eyelid job. He was sensitive, kind, professional and caring. He explained everything perfectly so I understood my problems and options. I wish I went to him for my surgery to begin with. It is obvious he has significant experience in the field due to his knowledge on everything discussed. The doctor had a great way of making me feel comfortable immediately. I found my surgeon. He does beautiful face work. There was a lady in his waiting room who had face work done, and she looked very natural and was very happy. He moved from Los Angeles, and I know it is a matter of time before he will be the next NY gem.  Respond
