I wish I could still go to Dr Swize. In my whole life she's the only GI doctor to ever do me any good and actually help with my GI symptoms. She's sooo good at what she does and you leave her feeling better. If you're looking for a good GI doctor she's the best I've ever had.

Dr. Swize takes the time to listen to you as well as ask comprehensive questions about your condition and how you're feeling. She also takes the time to give you detailed answers and I never feel rushed. I'm highly satisfied with her care and expertise. I started seeing Dr. Swize after having a horrible experience with another GI doctor and I was so happy to have her treat me. The staff is amazing, they are quick to respond to phone calls and they are very friendly.
