Patient Comments (2)
Meridian, ID |
Very poor people skills
in Boise, ID |
DR Swanson cancelled an apt 5 minutes before arrival time, then was not a good listener about issues that arose from an unexpected ER visit. Did not give a refill on a blood pressure med prescribed at the hospital. Did not even give dietary suggestions at the apt or want to research why a sharp upturn in high blood pressure occurred. Subpar physician.
