Dr. Sam Schwartz Announces Retirement

Dr. Sam first opened the doors of the Bartlett office back in 1981. After 30 plus years of outstanding service to the community, this wonderful pediatrician has decided to retire.

He was one of the leading advocates of breastfeeding throughout the community and served as a medical associate of La Leche League. He was a pioneer in our area for referring breastfeeding mothers to lactation consultants that ultimately led to hospitals hiring lactation consultants as part of their routine staff.

In addition, Dr. Sam was an early proponent of prenatal classes. He was one of the first pediatricians to attend community childbirth classes and helped develop a curriculum for expectant parents. Over the years, Dr. Sam helped prepare countless families for the upcoming birth of their child and the months to follow.

Dr. Sam always strongly believed in the family connection and worked alone from 1981-1988 waiting for his younger brother Dr. Dave to join the practice. Working side by side with his brother for the next 25 years gave Dr. Sam great pleasure as he first mentored Dr. Dave and later on became his colleague and partner. He definitely knows that he is now leaving the practice in Dr. Dave’s very capable and caring hands. Dr. Sam loves tradition and is thrilled that Schwartz Pediatrics will continue to maintain its strong family bond with the addition of Dr. Dave’s son, Dr. Henry “Elie” Schwartz, to the practice.

Dr. Sam will now be able to spend more time reading, working on crossword puzzles, attending religious classes, listening to classical music, playing piano, walking his dog, doting on his grandson Spencer, and traveling with his wife Sharon.

We want to thank Dr. Sam for all his hard work and dedication. We are all grateful for his tireless devotion to his patients.

Good luck Dr. Sam…you will be missed!
