Dr. Schwarz has performed all my spine procedures and I would not go to anyone else. I trust him completely.

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.
