I just found out today that Dr. Schwartz passed away when I called his office to schedule an appointment. I am 47 years old and he was my life long eye doctor . He was my favorite Doctor of any kind, he will be forever missed by me.

I worked for dr Schwartz while still in high school, at what was supposed to be a fill in position for another employee but what I didn't know at the time is working for dr Schwartz would change my life. He taught me so many things, but most importantly giving the gift of sight. He was kind, patient and treated his staff and patients as his own family. He is the reason for my success, and career in ophthalmology. I will keep his entire family in my thoughts and prayers, as there will be many difficult days ahead. May Dr Schwartz Rest In Peace.
I will also never forget all the times he trusted a young high school girl to drive his corvette for many dunkin coffee runs for him.
