I was very pleased with Dr. Swanson. He explained things to me in words I could understand. We discussed options I had and set up a plan to get things figured out. He asked my opinion on what he wanted to do and did not make me feel left out.

I lost my husband just over a month ago. Dr Swanson & nurse Mindy were very kind & supportive to me. Listened to my concerns & made me feel like I was their only patient today! I was certainly their priority & I’ll never forget that feeling.

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.
