No problem with the Dr., however wait time of one plus hours is not good and very tiring. Perhaps something can be done to improve upon this.

Dr. Swanson is wonderful! I would highly recommend him to anyone. I was back to normal after my rotator cuff surgery in about 2-3 months. Great care by Dr. Swanson and great care by my physical therapist Adam Endress.

I work in a physical therapy facility and see many of his surgeries. He’s by far one of the best doctors we have encountered and all of his patients have returned to full duty or activities with no issues. Not only do I see his patients in our clinic, but I was one of his patients. Dr. Swanson repaired my labrum and did a bicep tenodesis on my left shoulder. I am an extremely active person who loves to workout 5-6 times a week and run Spartan races. Before surgery my shoulder would hinder my wor

Dr Swanson did a full replacement of my right shoulder joint and removed a significant bone spur. After 88 days I was easing back into tennis. He assessed my problem accurately, used great technology and executed the surgery beautifully. Simply put, he knows what he is doing... and he is a nice guy!
