Dr. Behrens was my medical oncologist during my tonsil cancer treatment in 2013. He exceeded my expectations in finding solutions to complications that developed during treatment. He continues his very personal consultation with me six years later. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Review for Dr. Robert Behrens, MD

Unless you are going for the common cold I would find another doctor. She'll treat your symptoms. She just doesn't care enough to find out the why you are having them. My illness may have been caught over a year ago if she care. Now my health is paying for it in a serious way.

I had Dr. Swanson for my 3rd pregnancy very easy to talk to and get along with. I wish he would have been on call when my baby girl was born but I had another very good Dr. at Mary Greeley. Dr Swanson did come in and check on us the next day when he was in!
