Gig Harbor, WA |
Dr. Shvidler provides excellent care and I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
in Tacoma, WA |
I had a great experience with Dr. Shvidler. I take some medications that I find most physicians aren't familiar with. Dr. Shvidler was very informed and helped me navigate my recovery and my medications. He is extremely knowledgeable and is willing to go the extra mile to ensure your well being. He left a clinic and came to a different clinic just to do a quick check to alleviate my concerns. I highly recommend him.

I have had Upper eyelid Blepharoplasty, as well as under-eye laser resurfacing with Dr. Shvidler. He is very courteous and confident. I am more than pleased with my results. He explained the proceedure and discussed the results I should expect, and answered any questions I had. I would highly recommend anyone considering eyelid surgery to consult with Dr. Shivdler. The office staff is kind and helpful and the facilities are Beautiful and inviting.

I had a septoplasty, could not breathe for 30 years. Military did not do so well on the first one. Dr Shvidler, saw the problem and made recommendations. He has a higher than superb bedside manner,with care and concern for your health above and beyond. After the surgery I was happy enough to cry. (And I did in private.) his professionalism is far above and beyond in the medical areas of expertise. Before you seek out another Dr. have a consult with Dr. Shvidler. One cannot say enough for him !
