I came to Dr. Swelstad after my bilateral mastectomy. I have seen his partner in the past for some sinus issues. I immediately felt comfortable knowing he was in the same office. Dr. Swelstad and his PA, Tammy, were absolutely great! He did a great job making sure all my questions were answered, and all my concerns we addressed. Prior to surgery, Dr. Swelstad thoroughly explained what I can expect during and after surgery which elevated all my fears, and eased my nerves. He is just overall fantastic! I have already and will continue to send people his way!

I love Dr Swelstad and his staff! He worked wonders on my train wreck of a chest! I was a little hesitant at first because he suggested doing a lift and three months later implants, the man KNOWS what he is doing and I am so pleased!

I can not put into words how much I love Dr. Swelstad! I went to him in a tragic state after a double mastectomy and asked that he work wonders in order to repair my chest. He went above and beyond. He was compassionate, friendly, informative. If I ever had a problem or concern his staff was always quick to answer any questions. Dr. Swelstad is one of the best doctors I have ever encountered and will continue to recommend him to anyone who asks!

Dr. Swelstad was able to get me in for surgery within a week of having a breast implant rupture to have them replaced. I was incredibly nervous as my previous experience years ago with the surgery was painful and had no follow-up care. Dr. Swelstad spent time with me to be sure I was making the right decision and calmed my nerves. The results are great, I am very pleased and would recommend him to anyone having any type of plastic surgery. He is great!

I've never had any sort of surgery before, so I was really nerve racked, but Dr. Swelstad took good care of me. Not that surgery is a fun experience, but he had it as enjoyable as possible and helped calm down my nerves and anxieties. I'm very happy with the outcome and results I have had and have to come.

I was referred to Swelstad by an Orthopedic surgeon for cranial painful cranial deformities. I am on Medicaid and of course cannot compete with cash paying cosmetic surgery patients. I was made to jump through so many hoops before the doc would see me I.e. See other dr.s get more tests and on and on. Only to be told Swelstad said he was not the right dr for me after all and he didn't want me to waste a trip to GJ. So he gives me the # of the exact same kind of dr DENVER. Also they are rude.

I am so pleased with the results of my breast reduction! My back pain is almost completely gone now. I'm able to excecise comfortably, they're symetrical and look great. I'm so grateful to Dr. Swelstad, his PA, and all the nurses and aides that cared for me. I couldn't have asked for better results!

My experience with Dr. Swelstad was exceptional. Upon initial consultation I had many questions in regards to size, and symetry. Dr. Swelstad answered all my questions, gave clear explanations and took the time I needed to feel comfortable with decision on size and procedure. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Prior to the procedure Dr. Swelstad met with me again to make sure the size selected was what I wanted, and explained how the procedure would go. Outcome was excellent!

Never dreamed of having this done, breast reduction. But, at 64 yrs. young, I felt it time to at least find out more about it. Seeing Dr. Swelstad and having him explain what he could do in ways I could totally understand and feel so comfortable with, it was a go. I'm EXTREMELY glad I chose to have this done, after 6 mos. since the surgery I am even more thrilled with the results. His staff is sweet and caring, as is he from the start. I highly recommend Dr. Swelstad!

I am currently at 6 months post-op and have to admit that I am feeling pretty confident in my results already. Dr. Swelstad was thorough with his suggestions and honest about his opinions concerning projected results. He has great bedside manner and seems to care about his patients concerns. His staff is friendly, attentive, and helpful. I will always recommend him to anyone who has need of his services. I truly felt like I was in good hands and so will you be. Thank you Dr. Swelstad.

My case was complicated and uncomfortable. Dr. Swelstad listened, cared, and fixed my injury. I had been living and compensating for an unfortunate childhood accident for years. Now I have the freedom to live my life without my previous restrictions and insecurities. I could not have asked for better results; in fact, I was shocked at how perfectly I healed after my surgery. Thank you, Dr. Swelstad, for giving me a new start and the confidence to pursue my dreams.
