What People Say About Dr. James Swain, MD

Dr. Swain was recommended to me by my GI doctor who told my that Dr. Swain is an excellent surgeon and has excellent judgement. After 10 years of issues caused by my first gastric bypass (from another surgeon who is no loner in practice) and years of trying to get help with it, Dr. Swain knew immediately what the issues were and fixed them once and for all. I have recovered so quickly with minimal pain. He has a very competent and caring surgical team and his office practice is outstanding. Dr. Swain made me feel that I am the most important patient he has, from the very first time I met him, to the day of surgery, to subsequent visits while I was in hospital and then to my post operative visit. He is truly an awesome surgeon and an awesome human being. A rare combination! Thank you Dr. Swain!

Dr Swain is very caring. Love everything about his office. Only issue was the lady to fill out leave paperwork. I had to push her to do it. The PA kelly is great as well. The psych dr is really nice. The current nutritionist is not very friendly and not much personality, her seminars were the worst. But Dr Swain is great! As was the rest of the staff

eek Dr Swain did my surgery in September 2017, i would like to thank him and his entire staff. They all are very professional but most of all caring people, his MA Desiree is awesome. Whenever I reached out to her she always responded and was very helpful and gave me a sense of comfort through my process. I’m still in the whole weight transition thing but he has given me my health back. Dr Swain is a hell of a surgeon, he’s got skills. I highly recommend him if you need weight loss surgery

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

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.
