What People Say About Dr. J David Swift, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
The worst medical experience of my life. Dr Swift started out seeming like a good doctor. Though this first meeting was only so in depth because he charged my insurance for an entire physical without my approval. Future appointments were five rushed minutes that Dr swift barely listened during, where he pushed hard narcotics and tranquilizers against my expressed wishes. The office staff are incapable of setting appointments with any other medical services, often I had to make the calls my self.

I've been a patient of Dr. Swift for many years and continue to be impressed by his dedication to staying up to date on the latest information about medicines, health, and nutrition. He assesses the whole person and the whole body, a rare find in the medical profession these days. As an independent physician he can focus on his best judgement rather than being beholden to a corporation. I would recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Swift has been my husband's (Enzo Loop) doctor for several years and has been excellent He never makes you feel rushed and makes sure all your questions are answered. He will check on anything you have a question about and give you a personal phone call to make sure you have an answer. Very personable (and sneaks in a joke every once in awhile). Definitely would recommend him.

Dr Swift has been my primary care family doctor for more than a decade. He is always attentive and tends to focus on long term solutions related to diet, exercise, stress as well as the normal medical methods available. He is caring and interesting and I highly recommend him.
