Amazing doctor. She will keep digging and chipping away, until she figures out what is going on. Super smart! Wow!
Central Oregon |
Dr. Swartztrauber is amazingly brilliant, compassionate, and not afraid to go after the root of what's causing a body trouble! If it hadn't bern for her attentive and knowledgeable care,where other practioners were stumped or too busy to dig deeper or order necessary diagnostics, I may not have made it through to the healthy, living side of life. - AJ Buerger

Great in the beginning. Care changed as time progressed. After tests were completed a separate appointment (month/s out) would have to be made just for results. When I would inquier about my health/ diagnosis she would often become impatient and very unprofessional stating she didn't have time for my questions and that I was part of an epidemic that she didn't feel like she could keep up with. Nurses began apologizing for HER behavior. I felt like a # not a patient.Disappointed.Finding new Dr.
