Patient Comments (2)
Ipswich, MA |
I wish they had a 'no star' option for the survey, I would have selected that for level of trust, explanation of medical conditions and how well provider listens and answers questions. Dr. Swanson barely examined our children and was writing prescriptions before even hearing and considering the symptoms and cycles of the issues we're trying to solve. Also, he looked at one child and when we asked about our other just said 'give them the same medicine' and walked out. We had two separate appts.
Examining room disorganized. Older man, took a chunk out of my toe. When I commented u got an I'm sorry, I didn't mean to go that deep or I would have given Novocain'. Let's hope the knife was sterile; guys fingernails were long/dirty, no social skills. I won't be back.!
