Dr. Swendsen did an Upper Endoscopy on me. He was professional and very kind, taking the time to explain the procedure and answer any questions. He did not rush. Afterward, he explained thoroughly the results he'd discovered. The whole team was exceptional, making the experience a positive one of looking for answers together.

I had a GED done by Dr. Swendsen yesterday. He was very nice and professional. He came in to talk to me before the procedure and also afterwards spent time explaining everything. His nurse called me this morning to make sure that I was feeling fine. I would definitely recommend him.
