      Definitely took the time to explain all parts of the procedure and did not rush me out of any of my appointments with him.
      in Montgomery, AL |
      Would recommend because of results. Also appreciated his willingness to answer questions, something not all docs will do.
      in AL |
      Dr. Swan and his entire staff are top notch. I am so pleased with the outcome of my Lasik surgery. I just wish I would have done it sooner.
      in Troy, AL |
      In past, have really appreciated Dr. Swan. But just received notice time to schedule husband's yearly exam. Called to make appointment, but next available was almost a year in the future. Something not right there. My husband is diabetic and needs YEARLY exams. If no cancellations occur so he can get in earlier, I may find another doctor for him. Very discouraging!
      in McKenzie AL |
      Dr Swan is a great doctor. The good Lord guided him through my surgery

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
