Review of Lisa Swords

- |

Wow, I'm surprised to read so many bad reviews about Dr. Swords. Both of my daughters as well as myself see her. I really like her! I think she gathers all necessary information before prescribing and explains the reasoning for her medication decisions. Yes, she can be a bit abrupt at times, but that is just her personality. She has our best interest at heart. She has a late policy to keep her schedule timely, which I appreciate, as my typical wait is only ever 5-10 minutes if that.

Review of Lisa Swords

I had a terrible time with Lisa- most appointments lasted about 5-7 minutes, and a good chunk of that then was spent on her talking about her upcoming vacations or new car, etc. She just prescribed medication without really talking about side effects, progress, etc.

Lisa Swords is money hungry. She charges an $85 fee for being 5 minutes late and forces you to reschedule even if you arrive within your 15 minute appointment time. Heaven forbid you get caught in traffic or have a family emergency to attend to. She's kept me waiting for over half an hour at times, but isn't understanding about you needing her to wait 5 minutes. Please seek help from a psychiatrist who cares more about your mental health then their paycheck.

Lisa is competent, compassionate, and caring. I referred a family member, and her experience is a positive one as well.

Review of Lisa Swords

I’ve been seeing Lisa now for four years after losing my 16-year old niece to suicide. Depression and anxiety overwhelmed me making every day challenging. She listens to me. She doesn’t just talk “at” me like many providers. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Lisa swords is a terrible practitioner, her main focus is making money. She over prescribed medication that often clash and are counter productive, after seeing her for six months we left and began reducing and eliminating all the crap she had me on, the medications I was prescribed initiated more problems than I started with, she spends no time to get to know you and the maximum in time I spent in her office was 10 mins. I would say more but I am out of room!

Review of Lisa Swords

My son saw Lisa Swords for a medication evaluation and I was shocked at how rude and judgmental she was. She demonstrated no compassion and made no effort to establish rapport or put him at ease. She did just the opposite! Within minutes of being in the room with her, he was turned off and shut down. I don't know how this woman thinks she can effectively work with adolescents. Within the last two minutes of the session she threw two prescriptions at us without hardly assessing his symptoms.

When I began seeing Lisa, I was able to come every 4 weeks but now I’m lucky if I can get in once every 8 weeks. If you have to reschedule, good luck to you. She also goes on vacation frequently so whole weeks get blocked out. Appointments are 5 min. It’s too hard to get an appointment so I am now driving twice as far to see someone else but at least I can get in the door. Pretty sure she just wants your money. Would not recommend.

Review of Lisa Swords

-Baltimore, MD |

Part 1: My daughter was being treated by Lisa Swords for depression and anxiety for approximately 18 months. Lisa is a very close-minded health care provider. She has no problem prescribing multiple psychiatric drugs without investigating the root cause of the symptoms. My daughter would convey to Lisa that she no longer feels depressed, but Lisa would insist that she was and would try to prescribe higher doses of medications and introduce new medications. (See part 2 for more)

Review of Lisa Swords

Part 2 - She was highly offended and became belligerent when I tried to challenge her assessment. Even my daughter's pediatrician was suspicious of Lisa's approach. The final straw was when she implied that I did not have my daughter's best interest in mind. Nobody cares for my daughter more than me and nobody is an advocate for her health and well-being more than me, period! I am happy to report that my daughter is medication free and doing quite well.
