    I had been travelling into the city to one of the top hospitals for over 8 years. I thought I was getting the best care I could get up until I experienced two separate situations where I needed additional care and could not get it. Dr. Sweeney was recommended to me and I decided it was time to make a change. Dr. Sweeney spent an hour with me, she's smart, she knows her stuff. It was definitely a 5 star visit!

    Today was my first visit. She took her time with me and my husband. She is very patient. I love my first visit. TWO THUMBS UP!

    It took a while to get in to see her for our initial appointment, but she was worth the wait! Dr. Sweeney is kind, listens, coordinated "team" of doctors to get to the bottom of a difficult diagnosis, follows-up on your care in every way. Ordered all tests needed to find out what was wrong and the staff at St. Luke's Neurology was super helpful in coordinating these tests, and other specialist appointments that Dr. Sweeney wanted to consult with. She's a fantastic doctor.

    Dr Sweeney treats me for MS. She's very high energy and after my first appointment, I was overwhelmed. But I've since come to respect her. She really does listen and is interested in digging deeper to identify root causes.

    Where do I begin to tell you about this AMAZING women.. Dr. Sweeney is one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever met. She is not only a Neurologist but one of the most up to date and knowledgeable ones. When she joined St. Luke's hospital I had to follow her, I drive almost 2 hours for my appointments. Dr. Sweeney has never sat behind a computer during a visit with me. She makes visits feel comfortable. She really listens and puts you first. Her office staff have been great as well.
