It been many years but Dr. Peng delivered my first baby. He really went above and beyond especially when my baby fell ill. He checked on her daily and brought me all her test results before the pediatrician even did, he got me a longer hospital stay so I can be with my baby. He is amazing.

Please please don’t get involved with this office if you suffer from joint pain. No call back, cannot make an appointment (you leave a message). No call backs. Dr Swan should be ashamed and deeply embarrassed that his patient care is ruined by his staff. Truly reprehensible
