Ratings for Dr. Ida E. Schwab
I have seen Dr. Schwab for a number of years and will be switching. Very bad bed side manner. While very thorough, you feel silly when asking questions and that they just want to treat the problem and get you out. Some of the nurses you call to speak to problems about also have been abrupt. Overall lack of compassion at this office.
I had the most AWFUL experience with Dr. Schwab. I am over 40 and was so happy to learn I was pregnant with my first child. She was rude to me and my husband and actually told me she was surprised I was able to get pregnant. Unfortunately, after 13 weeks I miscarried. When i went in for the exam she had the nerve to ask me if I was surprised. She told me it was healthier for me to miscarriage naturally and gave me absolutely NO advice on what I was about to experience. She said the main would be mild and that I could take aleve for the pain - what a crock of BS! I have never been in so much pain. I find her to be the WORST doctor I have ever seen and would NEVER recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Schwab was very disappointing. She was rude and obnoxious. She did not make me feel comfortable, was very brusque during the examination and inconsiderate when I asked a few questions. I will definitely not be going back and hope she reads this and learns to be a bit nicer to her patients during an exam. Checkout girls at the supermarket have been more helpful.
Dr. Schwab has been my doctor for over 5 years. She has always treated me with both respect and dignity and I would highly recommend her. She was a little quiet upon my first few visits but always competent and helpful. She has since completely warmed up and continues to be a valued resource in my life. The office staff is great too!
Dr Schwab treated me with a complete lack of courtesy and when I used the phrase "crippling pain" to describe my cramps she told me to take motrin. She did not seem to believe me when I said an unrelated medication had helped them and was dismissive in general. I won't be returning to her and would recommend to everyone that they avoid her as well.
Dr. Schwab is knowledgeable but has a terrible bed side manner. She is rude and very short with patients. She made me feel silly for coming in to have something I was worried about checked out. After about three years of her poor attitude, I plan to switch doctors. If you don't care about bed side manner, she is totally fine. If you do, don't go to this doctor.
