Dr. Swofford and his staff are exceptional at what they do! I have seen him for years and he is always sincere in his concern for my health. His staff is always friendly and helpful. Dr. Swofford has THE BEST bed side manner of any of the 100+ doctors I've seen. I would highly recommend him!

Just keeps pushing the stimulator, high dollar item, doesn't always work and repeat business masking the pain instead of a permanent repair to regain the patient quality of life and not having to keep going back for adjusting and battery replacement. More about money than quality, get a 2nd opinion or better yet get a doctor interested in your long term health.

In no way would I recomend this Doctor..............his office staff is of no use, they do not return calls and complaine even on their recording that they have only one doc and 2 office help. They do not care and have no intentions of helping. My own family doctor called the office and was not able to talk to anyone and no one returned their calls. I believe the lady's name was Tracy and she was not aware of my problems and just keep telling me she was alone and what did I expect. That was after 3 call that was not returned. He needs to do something so no one else has to suffer worry about the situation as I did. Very disappointed. The doctor was great, but his office staff was just nasty. For that reason I would NOT recommend him for any of my friends or family.

Today was my first experience and injection with Dr. Swofford. My husband & I both felt comfortable and liked him as soon as he started his exam. He explains in terms we understand. He sensed I was nervous and done his best to make me laugh. I have had many injections in my spine, by many doctors since 1999. I love my previous pain management doctor. But he is always booked so far out. We have decided to continue my care with Dr. Swofford and feel he will provide me with equal, excellent care.
