Truly abominable woman...cannot believe she is still practicing!
in Charleroi, PA |
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 the negligence and ongoing issues she had caused me due to the delay in treatment. Dr. Swan, I cannot believe you are still practicing medicine.

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.
in Coraopolis, PA |
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.
