What People Say About Dr. David Swedler, DO

Dr. Swedler and Dr. Eugene Cho from St. Joseph Hospital performed emergency surgeries on me in December 2018. I am convinced the two doctors saved my life. My family had been told there was a significant chance I may not survive, but the doctors did what they do best and I'm alive as a testament of their skill. Upon meeting Dr. Swedler after surgery I found him to be warm and caring. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

All I have to say about this 37yr.old Master Of what he does. Was i wasnt too sure . I was a little scared. About the robotics thing. This is the next day now at home. My pain is not as bad as I experienced from the last dr. That did a hernia for me 2 yrs ago. If you have this guy as your surgeon. Dr. Sweidler is the guy you want. Hands down I recommend him for your surgeon. I can see and feel that he did a great job. And cant wait to tell him personally. I see him in 9 days. Aaron R.

2 stars for the Doctor and how easy it was to get setup online. But once it got to the more important parts I couldn't get the staff that have hands in putting together my packet and submitting it to my insurance to be responsible, reliable and, honest with me. One day I would be told they didn't get my fax, next they have every thing and it will be sent I'd check back and it was still not sent off. I got the run around for 3 weeks and it was finally sent off because I called every day some days

Dr Swedler is a very compassionate doctor who takes the time to listen to his patient's and doesn't leave the room until he is absolutely sure that the patient understands the condition they have and what can be done to aide them. He goes the extra mile with each patient and actually went on a gut instinct and ordered tests that weren't normal for my case and was able to detect some slow growing cancer that normally would have been missed. He is caring and very professional.

My husband had surgery performanced by Dr Swedler. He has amazing bed side manner and truly cares about his patients. In addition, when we did have a concern after hours he called us personally in less than 10 minutes. I am beyond impressed.
