I saw Dr. Swanson today for my annual check. I have gone to Dr. Swanson for over 10 yr.s and have had nothing but the best of care. He truly cares about my health,my concerns and has always discussed options to treatment and then discusses a plan of care. He is so knowledgeable about diseases and current treatments and what one can expect if a procedure is needed as well as pros & cons of a new medication. I am extremely fortunate to have Dr. Swanson as my primary care physician.
