What People Say About Dr. Michael Sweeney, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Sweeney's talent is exceptional. I thank him for saving my life. Sharon, his nurse, lacks compassion, kindness, and follow-up with certain members of society, i.e., the LGBT community, in my opinion. She's intolerant and discourteous and does not tell the truth, and her behavior speaks volumes to this effect.

Dr. Sweeney is the greatest! He explains things very thoroughly in common terms so you know exactly what to expect. He takes his time and answers your questions! He just did quadruple by-pass surgery on me three weeks ago. I am doing great! I feel much better! My incision is healing so quickly. It looks as if there will not be much of a scar. Dr. Sweeney saved my life and made it an easy road for me and my family. I and my family feel so blessed that he was my surgeon!
