Dr. Sward is both personable and professional. She is thorough and gives you options. The office operates in a safe and timely manner. Jill was especially efficient in all the preliminary testing. There are also very good reminders ahead of each of your visits which come to you via text or email.

I hve had two very positive experiences withDR. Sward for my cataract procedures. Everything was very well explained, and then the surgery itself went very well with all of the nurses concerned, working with Dr. Sward. I am very appreciative for their fine care.

Excellent on all criteria - patient interaction Is easy, relaxed, respectful. Dr. Sward communicates well technical information, explanation; of procedures, options, likely effects of the procedure and possible short and long term treatment outcomes. Most importantly, though, Dr. Sward, inspires confidence and is very nice!

The doctor was thorough and efficient. She answered my questions and gave me information for follow-up treatment that was clear and why it was necessary. She was reassuring in the reason for the follow-up treatment.
