Nice personable doctor and staff. He is very direct and has always had a good plan for me. I get treated fairly and have had no issues. I’ve been going here for 5 years now and am happy I have finally found a practice that works for me! A few of my friends now go to this practice since I’ve told them about the care I’ve received! I will be recommending more of my friends to go there!

Saw the NP today, and both of the NPs I have seen today and in the past have been wonderful and personable by the way. However, the NP this morning left the room to ask the Dr to come look at me and he told her that what she was looking at was probably what she thought, and he didn't come in to see me. Now I heard him talking and he wasn't with another patient. She just wanted a second set of eyes, and he didn't support her. I'm disappointed in the Dr.

After being a patient of Dr. Swisher for several years, I refuse to remain under his care. His staff especially the secretaries are very rude and that is the last thing you need when hurting. His referral process is outdated in which there were several times my family could not get the care needed because of his outdated methods. Lastly, his billing process is a joke. I received bills for care a year after the event and they were wrong every time. This practice is a joke!

Dr. Swisher is a great doctor and really friendly. I liked him a lot! Seemed like he truly cared and personable. His staff is horrible though and very rude and unprofessional. Kind of like the type that just got by school with a "passing grade" and grew up in bad neighborhood. They didn't care for anyone but themselves and didn't care how they treated you.

I left this practice well over a year ago because of unwillingness of Dr Swisher to take the time to answer questions. His office staff is very discourteous as well. I agree with the others who say that it appears that you have to be chosen to be a patient there. Apparently, you are not allowed to question anything. They will also charge you an arm and a leg to transfer your records to another doctor. Sadly, it did not used to be this way years ago.

Been with him over 10 years when all of a sudden his office manager and himself decides that my wife and I are no longer allowed to be his patients. I believe his office manager is his wife. Because of a interaction between my wife acting on behalf of her employer questioning a patient's bill they decide that we are aggressive and threatening. We have never been late on a bill and have never given them cause for such actions. I tried talking to dr. Swisher about it and he refused.

I would never recommend this doctor! His nurse Rachel is the most unprofessional person I've ever experience in a healthcare office. The office is a joke and the professionalism of his Nurse is nonexistent.

When I first started coming here I really liked Dr. Swisher. He was thorough and had an excellent bedside manner. It has changed so much now that I will have to find a different practice. The nurse practitioners are hit or miss. The staff is just not great on average which is a shame because I like the Dr.

Dr. Swisher does take time to listen, is kind and personable. The NPs in his practice are terrible. I will not see either one of them. His staff does not seem to be on top of patient referrals. I've waited a week after being referred only to call the office and have them say, "we just sent that yesterday".

I would never recommend visiting DR Swisher again. I understand medical practices MUST make money to stay in business, but I have been making payments to DR. Swisher's office for long as I can remember; I called to request medication refills and was told I would need to pay a minimum of $225 in order to receive them. I have been on these medications for 2 years; they are not controlled substances. I was in disbelief when I was denied my medications. Medical necessity takes precedent over money.

His staff have very poor bedside manners. I literally sat there while the nurse practitioner who saw me inquire with the internet to see what could have caused my rash. You would think that she would recommend an allergy test to see what caused the reaction so I can know to stay away from that thing but no she said " yea, I don't really know what is causing your rash. Take Benedryl." SERIOUSLY! 35 dollar copay gone down the drain. I now see why I can so easily get an appointment!

My son went to Dr swisher office with sore throat, white spots on his throat, fatigue and abdominal pain. Was told it was just a virus and was sent home with antibiotics "just in case". The next day he woke up with severe jaundice, went to the ER to be diagnosed with mono and liver complications . He received fluids for dehydration. Called the office to ask how they could have missed this, noone would talk to me. We got a letter the next week to drop us as patients. I do not recommend.

I have been seeing Dr. Swisher for quite awhile and have always been ok...but it seems like things are changing there. I started our there seeing him..that is who I ask for and make my appointments with. Yet when I arrive thete is someone else who comes in..does not introduce himself, and Dr. Swisher is just out in the office talking and laughing with other staff when i come out. Not at all happy....

The staff makes mistakes quite often by not calling in referrals, prescriptions, or following up on time sensitive matters. I brought this matter to the doctor's attention and his response was that he hoped someone was not trying to sabotage is practice; yet the issues continually persisted. The doctor, himself, can appear disheveled at times and the turnover rate of staff and nurse practitioners at this practice is alarming. I would recommend trying to seek out another practice first.

I'm a newer patient of Dr. Swisher. He took the time to ask questions and listen in my initial appointment. He's easy to talk to and his approach made sense to me. I will say I prefer seeing Dr. Swisher vs. a member of his team.

I feel that Dr Swisher is a very good doctor but he has a lot of problems with his office staff. They are rude and the billing department is inept. Bills are not submitted to the insurance on a timely manner and when the insurance denies payment for lack of compliance, they harass the patient to pay for their mistake. I go there for health care and leave frustrated and with raised blood pressure.
