Dr. Swain is an incredible surgeon. I had gastric bypass 10/2012. In his hands, I've never felt safer.

Dr. Swain, a caring, well-trained, highly skilled gastroenterologist & surgeon, is the first doctor in 10 years that fully explored and addressed the medical issues that I was having due to a previous Gastric Bypass . He found ulcers in my esophagus due to a silastic ring that was placed on my anastomosis in 2004 & several hernias. He removed the ring and repaired the hernias, made sure I was fully ready to discharge from the hospital and provided excellent follow-up. I highly recommend him!

I was Doc Swain's patient at the Mayo Clinic in Minn. He literally saved my life! He was kind, informative and never made me feel unimportant! It's been 3 years since my surgery and I am going to try and see if I can fly to Arizona and have a evaluation with my progress and some issues not answered here in my area. Thank Doctor Swain, for being in the right hospital and the right time!

Dr. Swain was incredible! So kind and down to earth. Listens and discusses options in understandable terms. He personally called me to discuss the results of my UGI. I highly recommend him!

I had revision surgery resulting from an eroded mesh. I am glad Dr. Swain was the surgeon. After going in, he realized the problem was worse that it looked in all the tests and he was able to make the right decision to fix what needed to be fixed. He is very knowledgeable, caring, and was there every day after surgery, including the weekend, to make sure I was OK. I would recommend Dr. Swain to everyone. His staff is also very caring.
