Dr. Jay Schwartz attended Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, where he graduated in the top 25 percent of his class. Dr. Jay Schwartz treats and diagnosis both behavioral and health issues at Collin County Pediatrics.

Because young children often have some difficulty paying attention, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be difficult to diagnose. Regardless, ADHD is more than just normal childhood behavior. A number of specific signs indicate that the disorder may be present in a child.

A child who is showing signs of an inability to focus is a key sign that ADHD may be present. Being fidgety and impulsive is also a major indicator. A child may shout out comments during an inappropriate time, become highly impatient with others, and become prone to having outbursts. Ultimately, a pediatrician is the one who can accurately diagnose and treat a child accordingly.

As the owner and founder of Collin County Pediatrics in Frisco, Texas, Dr. Jay Schwartz is responsible for the care of hundreds of young people each year. Dr. Jay Schwartz has been repeatedly recognized as a local favorite, and is a recipient of the Vitals.com On-Time Doctor Award several times over.

Vitals recognizes physicians who earn top patient satisfaction scores in a variety of categories. In addition to honoring those who excel in a specific specialty or are particularly compassionate, the company identifies doctors who keep their appointments and maintain short wait times with the On-Time Doctor Award.

Recent research has provided some insight into the importance of short waiting times for patients. Though wait time does not seem to be as important to patients as one-on-one face time with their physicians, it does play a large role in patient satisfaction and willingness to return.

While a very good experience in the exam room can offset a long wait, the patients who are least satisfied with a physician tend to experience a very long wait coupled with a very short visit with the doctor.
