Dr.Swanson is very kind and caring. He takes the time to answer my questions and provide me with feedback. I’ve had my share of doctors that rush you through the appointment and brush aside my concerns, but Dr. Swanson is never like that. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients. I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family.
