I don't like the timed clip boards I feel like we are cows being herded through. it's like your on production of how many people you can pass through each day
Patient | May 20, 2017

Dr. Schwarz made my appointment worthwhile by addressing all concerns and made me very comfortable.
Patient | April 28, 2017

My main issue is that I had just had surgery the prior week and was on heavy medication,therefore did not ask many of the questions that I needed to ask.
Patient | April 26, 2017

One of the best doctors I've ever seen.
Patient | April 13, 2017

I feel he - does not know really what to do about my condition.
Patient | March 30, 2017

He is very nice and respectful. Explained everything that's going on.
Patient | March 15, 2017

To get the bad news I did of the recommended complicated surgery not likely helping me, my many questions were not answered based on the prior info I'd been given.
Patient | March 1, 2017

This doctor did not inquire about the problems I was having; he assumed everything did not listen when I told him I had Physical Therapy previously.
Patient | March 1, 2017

Many questions do not apply because with was for a second opinion consult for surgery. Dr. Schwarz answered all of our questions and gave good reason for his opinion. He also suggested treatment which I am scheduled for at the Osher clinic. This was my first encounter with Vanderbilt clinics.
Patient | February 28, 2017

THE DOC HAS NOT TOTALLY DECIDED WHAT TO DO WITH ME YET. I APPRECIATE THAT HE IS NOT AS THEY SAY knife happy. I hate that term. He is very careful. Having me cleared first. So I don't know what he is deciding to do yet. Had another MRI to make that decision. Had he not made these decisions I would of questioned him. But he has done what is right in my care.
Patient | February 27, 2017

When we arrived everyone was wonderful. When the doctor came in he was nice and introduced himself. Then when I started sking questions about having my. neck fixed that is when the doctor became rude and didn't want to listen to anything I or my family was trying to explain. Me and my family drove over 5 hours to go to this appointment and for the doctor to walk in and not even spend 5 minutes with us. Plus to be told there no way he could help.
Patient | December 19, 2016

Dr. Schwarz is one of the best physicians I have ever seen, he has a great personality, very knowledgeable. Just a great "bedside manner."
Patient | December 12, 2016

I think Dr. Schwarz is the best ever. one of the best doctors I have ever been too.
Patient | November 21, 2016

Dr. Schwarz is absolutely SUPER - total confidence in him & his decisions!!!
Patient | October 28, 2016

Dr. Schwarz is an excellent caregiver.
Patient | October 25, 2016

I only say dr. 1 time so don't really feel I could give an honest opinion or recommendation without further experience with him but he is highly recommended by my family dr. who I trust without questions.
Patient | October 6, 2016

waited 80 mins for dr & got ~ 5 mins of his time; I deserve my time even if a prior pt. took extra time
Patient | September 26, 2016

I am very impressed & confident with Dr. Jacob Schwarz! He is very caring & is not in a hurry to do surgery if there is any hope that other treatments will prolong having surgery.
