Dr. Sweeney is by far the best Gastro doctor I have ever seen. He has been my doctor a little over 5 years. He takes his time with you. Listens to all your concerns. Just overall the best doctor I have ever seen. Always trying to get to the bottom of the problem!

I would recommend Dr. Sweeny to anyone... He is the kindest, most caring doctor I have ever had the privilege of seeing. He is so compassionate and takes time to listen to all your concerns.. and makes you feel like you are his only patient ..even though he has many. I am so happy that I found him. Anyone would be in good hands with Dr. Sweeny.

I had a colonoscopy on March 18, 2016. It was my first time for this procedure. Doctor Sweeney immediately put me at ease and his demeanor during my visit was exemplary. In fact the whole staff from the receptionist to the nurses, assistants and anesthetist were simply fantastic. I have to go back in five years for another colonoscopy and I will not have a seconds hesitation this time.
