Patient Survey Reviews

Learn how patient feedback is cultivated
  1. 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.

  2. Trustworthy!

  3. 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.

  4. All good so far. [...] Everyone at the office was lovely and helpful. Except no magic wand. Thanks.

  5. I have recommended you to friends.

  6. Would recommend Dr. [Schwartz] to family members or friends for treatment.

  7. 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.

  8. I waited 25 minutes before being taken to the examining room. Too long and a waste of my time. Dr Schwartz, on the other hand, was worth the wait [...]

  10. doctor is through and has a patient rapport.

  11. The Chevy Chase and K street office are by far the most amazing staff and doctors. Very attentive to my care and have helped me tremendously in recovering! All options given and i couldnt any happier going to doctors visits with these offices! Last visits were with Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Robles! Amazing women!

  12. We arrived on time for our 7:30 am appt and were not seen until 7:55 am. The wait time for the first appt of the morning was unacceptable.

  19. I just had my second surgery in five years with Dr. Schwartz. She is amazing. So attentive and she obviously cares about her patients. I also have had a great experience with every aspect of the practice...everything from booking appointments to working with Cheryl to coordinate the surgery to the nurses and all of my follow up. Really great.

  20. Regardless of my specific problem (i.e. toe nail biting into skin), Dr. Schwartz always spends the time to [examine] all of both feet and ankles to make sure there is no additional problem.
