I've been going to Dr. Swinehart for over two years. He's found several cancers and removed them quickly. One was a severe case that could've ended much worse if Dr. Swinehart hadn't caught it and done MOHS surgery on it. He probably saved my life. He is very thorough and cautious. I see him every month to get rechecked.

I've been seeing Dr.Swingheart for 20yrs and have had a very good experience each time I have been to see him.Plan and simple, he is very good at what he does and has a wealth of knowledge. Jim

"State of the Art for 1950". Dr. Swinehart is skin cancer doctor - he has no ability to offer services/treatments for people with cosmetic/aesthetic dermatology problems. I saw him for acne scarring and the best he could offer me was dry ice or surgical grafting! His website says "State of the Art", but he has no lasers (his website states he uses laser - total lie), no DermaPen, no CO2, nothing other than prescriptions and surgical options. Avoid this doctor.

I went to Dr. Swinehart asking for a second opinion. Dr. Swinehart is very knowledgeable, to the point and left me with a minimal scar for a larger biopsy. Dr. Swinehart even said that I should return to my original doctor because he believed that they were on the right path and he did not want to ruin a relationship with another doctor. I found this very respectable but I did decide to have Dr. Swinehart do the procedure and I am happy I did. The office is dated.

i thought Dr. Swinehart was a greedy pig that didn't really care.

I am the mother of a teenage girl who had a pretty severe case of acne in the 8th grade. She had seen a dermatologist who tried 3-4 different meds and things only got worse. Dr Swinehart PROMISED her that he would have it cleared up by the time she started high school. 3 months later... he made good on that promise. Her self esteem was saved by a man who has years of experience and the confidence to promise a teenage girl he can cure acne. I am amazed and impressed. I recommend him 100%!!!!!

The receptionist told my husband they accepted our health plan of course after the procedure we found out he wasn't in network. When we asked to speak to Dr. Swinehart, we were told he would not take our calls and to write him a letter. He responded saying it was our responsibility to make sure that their insurance covers any providers they see. What is your responsibility to make sure your office does not give out FALSE information?

Totally uncaring, totally without anything but greed. He is aptly named and I would never recommend him or his untrained staff to anyone. Stay away if you do not want to be abused into treatment without consultation.
in Stratton, CO |
I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. He DEMANDED that I pay $800.00 up front before he ever met me in case I MIGHT need that amount of Botox. No consultation, no discussion, just GIVE ME THE MONEY. I have never met any doctor who was so greedy that he couldn't even wait to meet a patient before demanding huge sums of money. Stay away from this one!
