Dr. Swinnen explained my condition to me in a way that was easily understood and very thorough and also went over any and all possibilities that exist with my type of malignancy and organ transplant. I walked out very satisfied and felt like for the first time I was explained exactly what I have and how it a treatment should be approached.

Dr. Swinnen is fabulous. I have been at Hopkins for Liver transplant, colectomy and recently Lymphoma. He saved my life. Has to be one of the top Lymphoma Doctors in the world.
