I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I took my daughter to see him due to a genetic condition that causes her chronic pain. Dr. Swanson was rude and condescending. We were treated so poorly that I left in tears.

My dad suffers from CHRONIC pain.. Dr.Swanson was rude and did not try to help him at all whatsoever. Wrote him a script for MORPHINE and did not even take the time to explain this drug. Horrible experience. He's awful. Not there to help people at all. Don't recommend to anyone.
