I would Highly recommend Dr. Swan II to anyone with major eye disorders. I have or had Salzmann's Nodular Corneal Degeneration. Dr. Swan performed surgery on both eyes, March 7, and May 2, 2016. The left eye is GREAT and the right eye is almost Great. The surgery was traumatic, but I would certainly use Dr. Swan if I needed the surgery again at a later date.
in Montgomery, AL |
Very thorough. Lots of experience. Very satisfied. Staff is top-notch.
in Montgomery, AL |
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
