“I felt Dr. Schwartz spent an appropriate amount of time with me, did not rush through the appointment, and explained my condition and a medical plan for alleviating my pain.”
– Laurel P.
“5, excellent care, in using new technology to improve the patients life and health. I was up and around in a few weeks and not months after the surgery. Also the pain level with the treatment was minimum, could not have been happier. Do not want to go back, but if I have another warranty issue on a body part, I know where to go for the best treatment.”
– John W.
“Dr. Schwartz did a total hip replacement for me. I was anxious, as I had the other hip replaced seven years earlier by a different orthopedic practice and suffered complications. Dr. Schwartz listened to all of my needs and medical issues carefully. He responded in the most professional and caring manner. It has been 3 week since the surgery and so far, it has been a complete success! If you need a joint replacement, I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz!”
– Cathy G.
“Very friendly and informative. Dr. Schwartz gave me options and sound reasons for different options.”
– Rod P.
“The entire staff at Sports Medicine North made me feel an integral part of the procedure. I have not felt that in the past for other surgeries. They made me feel comfortable and included in decision making throughout the process. On the day of the operation, the smooth transition from one station to the next was impeccable and created a calming effect previously not felt be me in any other surgical situation. My thanks to all involved, especially Dr. Schwartz.”
– Joanne H.
“He made me feel comfortable about my knee concerns and did not rush me into having replacement surgery. After the surgery, he was very informative about what I should expect during my recovery, and he was pretty spot on. Even when I was concerned about the healing of my knee at the six-month point, and I called for an appointment, I received one within four days of my call. I told them I would see a PA, but I got one with Dr. Schwartz. I would recommend him and his office.”
– Nancy R.
“Had knee surgery on March 27th was up and walking on it the same day. PT for four weeks after allowed me to return to walking the golf course on the fifth week after surgery. Life is good again. When the time is right will go back to SMN for the other knee.”

Considerable research led me to Dr. Schwartz and Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport. Dr. Schwartz performed a total right knee replacement surgery previously. Absolute success. I've recently been back on the tennis courts practicing. Even played a few competitive matches. Significant improvement and sure to get even better very soon. Dr. Schwartz is replacing my left knee this week. Wouldn't have it any other way can't say enough good things about this Surgeon, Sports Medicine North staff, and Anna Jaques Hospital.”

“I had fallen on my knee cap and after a week it was still painful, swollen, and lacking full range of motion. I had to hobble going up and down stairs and became concerned it had been cracked or broken. I got an appointment in the Newburyport office within a day or two of my call. At the exam, I was given an initial x-ray, then met with Dr. Schwartz for a review. He indicated that there was no crack, just a bad contusion, to rest and ice it as I'd been doing, and that if it didn't start to improve in another week or two, to give him a call. It took more than a month for full recovery but I'm back to playing tennis 4-6 times a week.”
