"Dr. Schwend has become an adopted member of our family. His caring ways exceed beyond any patient exam or surgery room. He cares about the whole patient. I can't count the number of times he's told my daughter she needs to heal so that she can offer this world all she has because she is precious. He goes above and beyond to make sure his patient's needs are met. His knowledge and expertise is more than we ever thought possible. He explains things in a way that makes it easy to understand and never hesitates to answer any question myself, my husband, my daughter, or even any of my other children ask. "

"My son has a rare syndrome and many doctors turned us away, due to the unknown. But not Dr. Schwend! He was amazing during ever visit and surgery. He not only listened to me, but to my son as well. He gave my son his life back. We love him and everyone that works with him."

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
