Patient Comments (2)
in Maple Shade, NJ |
Dr. Sweitzer spent over two hours with me during my initial consult and over an hour during my pre operative appointment. He is not only the most thorough Physician I have ever met, but one of the most thorough people I have met. His attention to detail is outstanding. In addition, he is very personable. If you are having shoulder problems, I would highly recommend that you see Dr. Sweitzer. He worked in concert with my pain management Physician and my General Medicine/PCP Physician.
