Dr. Swenson is a very wonderful, caring doctor who is generally considerate of her patients' entire lifestyle and how it is affected by neuropathy. She takes great care to try to determine the cause of neuropathy. Her exams are extremely thorough. Her bedside manner is exemplary and her true care for her patients is the very first impression you get from meeting with her.

My husband was already diagnosed with PLS at a hospital in another state, but the drive was taxing on him. Dr. Swenson examined him for 10 minutes and told him she didn't see ANYTHING wrong with him! Then my husband saw her again about a month and a half later--not by his choice--she was the one they had him see. She told him to get counseling!!! I've never seen my husband so pissed off in all his life!! HE NOW HAS ALS!!!! She is a clueless idiot.
