Regarding his practice, Dr. Schwarz says “I deeply believe in the original meaning of doctor – docere – teacher. Our role is to help patients learn how to take good care of themselves”. Also, “Besides seeing people feel better, what I most enjoy about my practice is the connection to my patients. Each patient is a gift, and a teacher to me. It is an honor to hear a person open up and share their story. This is where healing begins”.
