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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
