"On Friday September 23, 2022 I had a procedure done by Dr. Darren C. Schwartz. The procedure was a colonoscopy. The directions from start to finish were clear & easy to follow. They explained everything to me which put me at ease & comfortable. The procedure took exactly the amount of time they said it would take. There were no surprises & I had no problems at all. Everyone that I came into contact with at the Waldron Endoscopy Center did a wonderful job. I felt well taken cared of. I would definitely recommend Dr. Darren C. Schwartz with any procedure similar the one I had. Robert D. Spoon"

5.0 Review from T. Source: Google May 25 2021

"I was very pleased with my visit from check-in by Latoya to my nurse Heather. Heather made me feel like I was talking to an old friend when discussing delicate information. The anesthesiologist, Manny was friendly and made me feel confident with his ability. I don't need to explain how important that is for his responsibilities. Dr. Schwartz was knowledgeable and took time before and after my procedure to give expectations and explain the results, as well as give me advice for what would help in the future. They called for the customary follow-up. But there are some offices that don't, so I was very appreciative of that. My procedure was quick, literally painless and my recovery went as they said it would. Overall I was very pleased."
