Excellent

He is nice but we always have very long wait times. Usually taken back long after appointment time then have to sit in a room for up to an hour

Dr Schwayder was great with my daughter and addressed all my questions. He was easy to understand and gave off a positive spirit.

09/13/2021

Waited 5 months for the appointment; then 1.5hours delay at the appointment. Doc kept mentioned that he is behind schedule and showed impatience to explain medical exam result treatment options. Showing lack of respect to my concerns or eagerness to learn about the treatment options. When he presented concern of NF-1 of my son and asked me to visit genetics and eye doctor for exams. I asked what does it mean if he has NF-1? Doc said it is a long conversation. I am out of time. I am extremely upset about the lack of information, respect and patience of this visit from this doctor!
