The front desk lady not so nice. I called for my test report but she kept asking me make appointment to see doctor. I told her that I just want to get my report, but she handed up my call. I think every patient has right to get their test report without go to see doctor. Why they don't give?

Dr. Alexander Myint Swan is the best healer in this world based on my experience as a patient as well as all experiences of my whole family and my extended families with my coworkers and my friends & neighbors. He is a real healer that I had my best experiences with his healing power curing my diseases and sufferings after my one visit in his office. His compassions & empathetic cares are phenomenal and give me such huge energy and comfort level resulting in my fully satisfactory functionality.

I feel as though Dr. Swan USED to be good and I don't know. He's lost his touch. After having him as our family doctor for many years, we've realized that he likes to experiment on his patients by trying new things that will most likely better his pockets more than it would his patient. He's been making a lot of mistakes lately & when we bring it up, he redirects us to a different topic. We went with one issue & came back w/ several. It's sad he isn't the same doctor we once knew and loved.

Dr. Swan is an outstanding physician. He is very compassionate and cares very much about his patients. He takes his time with his patients and makes them smile with his great sense of humor. He always puts patients at ease. He is always motivated to work even during a busy schedule. He never complains that he's tired or overwhelmed. Dr. Swan volunteers his time in other countries helping those in need with medical care. Has an amazing heart and personality and mirrors this to others. Top doctor!
