Just awful. Entered bent over, vomiting from pain, with three herniated discs when she was still w/Maroon. Told me & family it was in my head, let me go. That evening entered hospital, morphine drip, taken to Mercy for Bursick and team to do emergency surgery on my back. I should have sued her for...more

Almost 10 yrs ago I started as a patient of Dr. Swan, I have found her to be professional, trustworthy, compassionate and as long as you follow her direction she will never let you down.

Was referred back in 2006 for treatment of debilitating lower back pain coming from a knot in my back. Advised the pain was from me being overweight and nothing more. Suggested doing PT and massage therapy, neither of which alleviated my pain symptoms.
