Dr, Frank Schwab is an excellent surgeon. I consulted Dr. Schwab for a second opinion after becoming uncomfortable with my previous surgeon. I didn't know what to expect..He reviewed my medical record and MRI films prior to meeting with me.I was impressed that he was prepared to discuss my medical situation. He listened to my symptoms and explained in simple terms the options I had so that I can make the best informed medical decision. He made us very comfortable and answered all our questions.Without any hesitation, I knew he was the doctor to perform my surgery.. I am thrilled with my results and would recommend Dr.Schwab without hesitation.
His office staff and his PA Debbie were always available to answer all my questions and assist the endless paperwork needed to be completed. They were all wonderful and professional.
