Dr. Swann has performed 2 operations on me - lumbar fusion in 2003 and cervical fusion in 2013. Both were extremely successful. He is the only doctor I would trust my spine to! My only complaint is the level of difficulty I've been experiencing trying to get an MRI scheduled or an appointment to see if I need one. I've called 3 times and no response. I know everyone is busy but really? No response even if only to say get the MRI first then we'll talk??

After recent spinal surgery I have had to communicate many times with the office. They returned my calls promptly and worked diligently to get procedures and medical equipment covered by insurance. Dr Swann, his nurse, Martha and his receptionist, Nancy have been helpful with every step of the way.

Absolutely recommend him!!!
Dr. Swann is a great doctor but his staff needs to change their attitude a lot. They lie in regards to never receiving referrals, calls, and receiving voicemails. If he had better staff it would definitely be 5 star review. They're rude, and really don't care. However, Dr Swann is a great doctor and its worth dealing with his staff. So sad.
