What People Say About Dr. Daniel Swistel, MD
Reply
Dr. Swistel saved my husband's life, performing a triple bypass the day after we met him. He is spectacular - knowledgeable, friendly, caring, and gifted. His staff is also exceptional. Cannot recommend him highly enough, although it would be better not to need his services!
