"Dr. Schwartzstein was wonderful. I have been to this office before and my son met with 2 of the other physicians here and I left every visit with them wondering how they could be pediatric physicians. My son is special needs and needs a little extra patience and Dr. Schwartzstein was very patient and calm with him. His demeanor even allowed for drops to be put in his eyes where as none of the other physicians even wanted to attempt doing this. He is a welcome addition to this practice."
