I have had two surgeries from Dr. Swaringen. She is the best!! She asks the right questions to get the right answers to solve the problem!!! What more could you ask for. O Yes and she does it with personality and she cares. I will go to nor recommend no other orthopedic doctor.

She might be a good surgeon, but that's where it ends. The office staff is totally inept and under trained. Good luck getting a call back. She won't prescribe an adaquate amount of pain medication for the amount of pain you will be in after having surgery. After care is basically non existent and she doesn't seem to care. If you want good follow up care, go somewhere else.

Had knee replacement surgery and it was the best. She's a very good doctor.
Palm Harbor, FL |
Went to her for Visco supplementation shots in my knees. There was no follow-up to my phone calls concerning pain and scheduling future shots. I spoke to her surgery coordinator, Dee Ann about the problems. She said she would discuss it with the doctor and get back to me which she never ever did. Since I wasn't having surgery of any kind I figured they weren't interested in responding to me.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Swaringen! Her bedside manner is the best I have EVER seen! She listens and is very thorough. She is also very upbeat and feels like your talking to a friend! Her staff is very kind and also feels like family! I wish I could go here for everything. Can't wait for my next appointment. Many thanks!!

I walked into Dr. Swaringen's office, told her about the pain which was disabling and that other doctors were not able to fix the problem. She said it looks like a labral tear. She scheduled surgery, outpatient, I was in and out with the pain gone. She did take a CT Scan to verify her call but she is great.
in Trinity, FL |
Great, on time, and caring. Took time to listen to me and explain all my options. Consistently a great experience and I owe my tennis game (good and bad) to Dr. Sawringen keeping me on the court!
in New Port Richey, FL |
I have had several conditions treated by Dr. Swaringen. I broke my ankle in two places 8/2011 Her care was excellent, compassionate, attentive and on target. She took the time to answer all of my questions. Despite the severity of the breaks, with her care, my ankle healed w/o surgery. In 2/2013, I broke my wrist. Again, I received excellent, compassionate care and my wrist healed w/o surgery. I developed carpal tunnel syndrome and had surgery 6/15, I am 100% better thanks to Dr. Swaringen!
Trinity, FL |
Went to dr. Swaringen twice. Brought X-rays. She wanted me to take more X-ray in her office,and sent me for Mri . After second visit she said I had a tear and bulging disk that was causing my pain. Sent me for physical therapy. She makes you feel very rushed and she doesn't seem like a compassionate dr. As for her diagnosis, the physical therapist and the second opinion I received from another orthopedic surgeon was totally inconsistent with her evaluation. I am now treated for hip problems.
I saw her awhile back for a tear to my right shoulder (based on radiology report) after reading the report herself she informed me that the tear was insignificant and basically nonexistent & treated me like I was wasting her time. I literally broke down in tears because I felt hopeless at that point w no answers & still in severe pain, & she looked at me very frustrated & said well, there's nothing I can do for you and walked out of her office. I will never forget that experience. Disgusting!
in Tarpon Springs, FL |
Because of Dr. Swaringen's medical negligence, I was hospitalized with life threatening blood clots in both of my lungs. After knee surgery at my follow up appointment, I told her my symptoms - which were tell tale signs of blood clot development post surgery - and she completely dismissed my symptoms saying they had nothing to do with the surgery.
