Dr. Swerdlow is a fantastic Dr. He is smart, studied and confident and brings his excellent experience, communication and competence to make a difficult and uncertain situation seem routine and well managed. After seeing several cardiologists and feeling abandoned with no crisp answers or follow up, Dr. Swerdlow immediately understood my problem, the solution, and guided me with knowledge, understanding and support. He didn't over doctor me, nor under doctor me, he simply fixed the issue.

Dr Swerdlow saw me on extremely short notice and thoroughly evaluated my case and explained it to me in terms that i understood for the first time. He took the time to get a complete cardiac and medical history, ask many questions to ascertain the impact of my symptoms on my quality of life. He took the time to explain whether an ablation recommended by another physician was necessary and would likely alleviate the symptoms I was experiencing. Total confidence in his skills and judgement.

Excellent! Dr Swerdlow is a brilliant doctor who is obviously at the top of his field. He is patient and caring and answered all my questions completely. I went into surgery feeling completely calm and confident with him in my corner. He is quite simply a pleasure.
