Dr. Swicker was referred to me by a friend who is a physician and also goes to Dr. Swicker. Dr. Swicker is a brilliant diagnostician, takes time to explain things, is very caring and supportive. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Swicker without hesitation.

Dr. Rafiq has saved my life. He reduced the number of meds I was on, yet improved my quality of life significantly. He is kind and smart and I cannot say enough things about how he has changed my life!

Review for Dr. Rafiq

Dr. Fisk saw me for a routine colonoscopy. He walked me through the procedure in the initial visit, was very helpful (cheery) the day of the procedure, and followed up quickly when I had a minor concern after the procedure. I would definitely recommend Dr. Fisk to anyone.

Review for Dr. Strickler

Dr. Vakiener is an exceptionally competent practitioner, but more than that, he is an empathetic person who really cares about his patients. He also has a charming sense of humor! I trust him with my life. I am grateful that he is my doctor.

Rosemarie Heinegg Jun 19 2020

Review for Dr. Vakiener

Really friendly, explained things well, gave me lots of options and left the choice up to me which I really appreciated. He's not trigger-happy on surgery and will recommend less invasive therapy first, but will always give pro/cons of each option.

Worse doctor I have ever encountered! It was extremely difficult to get him to answer any questions or explain anything. He just wants to rush you out and have you come back in another week or two. He never spent more than 5 minutes per visit.

DR is amazing! Very caring. Will spend as much time as needed to answer questions. She was amazing for follow-ups for my DVT's and now diabetes. She is stern but I need that. Sometimes the wait time is long but then I remember that she has others patients and the waiting is worth it!

Dr Lam has a very poor bedside manner. I knew right away because I could hear the way he was talking to another patient with the door open. When he came to see me, he did most of the talking, didn't even get my full story. I will not go back.
