Dr. Schwartz is by far the best doctor I have ever had. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable. I have been under his care for over a year and recently had surgery. He took the time to explain everything to me and his bedside manner is amazing. He held my hand and calmed me down in the operating room and was there every morning to check on me during my hospital stay. I am now recovering and he did a remarkable job. I wish he was a general practitioner so I can use him for everything. I trusted him so much I did not even get a second opinion. If you use Dr. Schwartz you are in the best care possible. Thank you Dr. Schwartz for everything!!!!

I had surgery with Dr. Schwartz last month to remove my kidney cancer. He and the hospital staff at north shore were compassionate and caring. I feel great and am already back to the gym.
