The US healthcare system is deplorable, it has failed most people in chronic pain- we try to do what we can in one site of service realizing that injection therapies are not for everyone, nor are they appropriate for everyone. We emphasize wellness, ...

Dr. Swicegood is the most compassionate doctor I have experienced in my 68 years. If his office were a model for the health care system we would all be in wonderful shape! If you want someone who truly cares about your condition Dr. Swicegood is the one!

Dr. Swicegood has relieved my pain many years. I have always received courteous treatment from him and his staff. He is compassionate and concerned. He makes time for me if I need help in between treatments. If not for his care, I would not be as active as I am. The staff are just as courteous and compassionate. He listens to my concerns and shares information and advice.

If only there were more doctors like him & his staff he is so compassionate and talented with injections he is not a pill pusher he tries to educate patients in alternative measures to regain function and quality of life and on addiction he is amazing he has told me with injections corrective surgery physical therapy and not giving up I can get back to quality of life and how a life of just being on pills would be a trade off I will do all of the work to get there because he showed me I could

The insurance lady, Ricky, is absolutely terrible at her job. Never answers her phone, multiple messages left without returned phone calls. When you finally get ahold of her through the front desk she will say she was "just about to call you". Took over 2 weeks to do her job and now there are no more appointments available this month. She also answers the phone unprofessionally with a "Hey." expecting you to know who is calling you from a random number. Don't waste your time with this place.
