Patient Testimonials

Patient 1 – Pituitary Tumor

I had a pituitary tumor and I was losing sight in my left eye.  It was a very large tumor that needed to be taken out quite urgently.  Dr. Schwartz performed the surgery through the nasal cavity with an ENT specialist, Dr. Anand.

“The most amazing thing was that the degredation of my vision was pretty bad.  When I first woke up, Dr. Schwartz was there, and my vision was perfect immediately.” 

“There were no side effects and I feel great.  It’s amazing to think about what they did and how easy it was. I had almost no pain and minimal discomfort.”


Patient 2 - Chordoma

“In  February 2003 I had a breathing problem.  My regular HMO doctor referred me to an ENT doctor.  She felt it was my adenoids and wanted to remove them.  The second opinion agreed.”

“One look with the endoscope and Dr. Anand said, “I think you have a chordoma”.

“My ENT disagreed with his diagnosis.  She said he was an alarmist and it was most likely nothing. Dr. Anand sent me immediately to Dr. Schwartz.   The night before the surgery she called me and said I think you should go ahead with the doctor’s plan for endoscopic surgery”

“I”ve been with him ever since.”

“I was scheduled to stay 4 days in the hospital, I only stayed 2. 

“I feel that I am in the best hands.”

“In my career, my job has made offers for me to relocate, but my family says you can’t relocate.”  “It’s that important.”
