What People Say About Dr. Daniel Swartz, MD
RecentMost Helpful

irst of all, dr Swartz has saved my #%^* twice now. I would not be eating today if it wasn’t for him and he also just helped me through an emergency bowel obstruction. He fixed me after another bariatric surgeon made a mess of my insides and he’s worked with me through complicated issues. His bedside manner is awesome and kind and funny and caring. I have only positive things to say. After my experiences with bariatric surgery, I’m not a huge proponent of the procedure unless under extreme circumstances, but if you are determined to do it, you would be an idiot not to have him as your surgeon. In my opinion he is the best if the best.

I have been a patient of Dr Swartz since 2005, he is excellent. He is attentive, caring and uplifting. I am happy to have had the opportunity to have him as a doctor. I am sad that he is moving on to another adventure. I will not be able to see him anymore. I enjoyed his smiling encouragement. I wish you the best of luck in your new location. I thank you for all that you have walked me through and all the care over the years you provided. Sad, but I wish you well!! Becky Allen
