Huge fan of Dr. Schwartz!
Dr. SCHWARTZ and staff are one of my favorite drs to recommend.
The attitude of staff makes a visit pleasant or awful. I commented at the time that the staff niceness, friendliness and willingness to help made me so happy. You don’t,know how nasty some doctor’s offices can be—I do. Your staff is superior and the friendliness seemed genuine. I saw it with each patient who came in. The staff and doctors seemed to really like working there and working together. Thank,you so much. The doctor was efficient and helpful,in every respect.
Dr. Schwartz offers practical, direct, specific, comprehensible assessments and potential solutions, all with enthusiasm and energy. She inspires confidence that I'm placing my feet -- literally and figuratively -- in good hands.
Dr. Schwartz is the best. I wish all doctors were like her.
Dr. Schwartz [is] fabulous. I recommend her all the time.
Dr Schwartz was very thorough, patient and competent and provided complete information and answers to all my questions. The pre-surgery diagnosis and interim treatment, surgery and post operative visits and care were excellent. The doctor was conservative and proposed alternatives to surgery to alleviate the discomfort prior to making the decision to go ahead with the surgery. I appreciated that step-wise approach. I will return to her for any foot related medical problems in the future. I feel confident in her skill and in her hands.
The office staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. [Erika] Schwartz explained the problem with my toe and the various possible treatments. She also was reassuring and made me feel comfortable. I will not feel apprehensive about my next appointment.
All good so far. [...] Everyone at the office was lovely and helpful. Except no magic wand. Thanks.
I have recommended you to friends.
Would recommend Dr. [Schwartz] to family members or friends for treatment.
I am not new to the practice but new to the Chevy Chase location. I loved working with Dr. Schwartz. She was professional with just the right level of empathy and superb skill.
