Patient Survey ReviewsLearn how patient feedback is cultivated
Dr. Schwartz was knowledgeable, personable, gave me a thorough explanation of the issues concerning my foot, was able to immediately help, discussed how I could follow up on my own, discussed options with me about further care if my condition worsened, and gave me a follow up appointment which was also quite useful. If I have any other foot issues I will certainly return to her. I found her to be an excellent doctor.
Doc is great — superlative care and makes me feel like a familiar friend
My doctor is [Erika Schwartz] and from my first appointment a number of years ago I have always been extremely pleased with my office visits and her responses to any questions I might have.
I liked her a lot and if I need I will comeback.
I had a very safe and free-of-anxiety experience. Thank you Dr. Schwartz and staff!
Dr. Schwartz was right there when I came onto my screen...so no wait for her whatsoever..She checked out my toenails...answered my questions...and suggested I "see" her again in a few weeks when I finish my medication... The whole appointment lasted no more than 20 minutes.
Although there were some technical difficulties, I am extremely satisfied with the solution from Dr. Schwartz, this too, combined with the professionalism shown by the staff, in particular Ms Wanda. Excellent experience, overall. Thank you.
