Comments from Students: 

“Dr. Schwager's office sees a great variety of patients- both from a disease aspect and a demographic aspect.”

“Dr. Schwager always presented challenges to me without ever putting me in situation in which I felt uncomfortable. He included me in all office activities.”

“I was able to set my own pace in clinic and never felt rushed. I received excellent feedback and instruction. All of the individual styles of my preceptors were helpful and I would adopt elements of each. This was a great site to work at.”

Comments from Faculty: 

“We see a great variety of patients -one minute evaluating a multi-problem geriatric individual, and the next an infant with a respiratory problem, perhaps followed by some office surgery. In the midst of it all, many patients have been under my care for several years. The continuity is terrific.”
