Dr. Swelstad is a compassionate, skilled surgeon. He performed major reconstructive surgery on our son who suffered severe facial trauma as the result of an ATV accident. Dr. Swelstad spent significant time with us explaining what was done, what to expect, and responding to our many questions. He has remained in touch with us since we've returned home to the East Coast and is continuing to monitor our son's progress even a month after surgery. We highly recommend Dr. Swelstad!
Dr. Swelstad is one of the most caring, compassionate, doctors I have ever met. He made sure I was well informed about my options and ultimately my procedure beforehand, he has exceptional bedside manner and is excellent about following up afterwards. He truly cares about his patients and I would highly recommend him and his staff.
