Outside the Practice:
Dr. Schwertfeger is blessed to be married with children and continues to learn the lesson that there is nothing more important in life than loving God and loving others. He thoroughly enjoyed serving as volunteer Scoutmaster for a local Boy Scout Troop. After hours you might find him hiking, camping, adventure motorcycling through national parks, or pedaling a gravel bike on the quiet, beautiful rural roads of the Flint Hills.
