      can not talk directly to anyone at your office. I just want to speak to someone to answer some of my questions. Very poor communications.
      in Christiansburg |
      I have been treated by Dr. Swanson for over 8 years. He listens carefully to what I have to say and seem genuinely interested in what I have to say and how I am feeling. This is a very rare trait in doctors these days.
