I have taken my daughter to see Dr. Swinyard over a dozen times, he or his PA have made me wait 45+ minutes every single appointment. Morning, right after lunch, late afternoon...it does not matter, you will wait as he has no consideration for your time. His staff is also incredibly rude!

My daughter was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism at birth and we have moved a few times, so I have been to 3 other Endocrinologist over the years. He would not read her blood work and prescribe her medication until I took her in for a hand x-ray and thyroid ultrasound. These both ended up being very expensive. None of the other Endocrinologists even suggested doing this, just blood work. I think it is ridiculous that I felt forced into the other tests so that I could get her medication.

Dr Swinyard ran a lengthy series of tests on my daughter-blood work, urine, bone x-ray, pelvic ultrasound, 5 hour growth hormone test and a brain MRI. They were invasive and expensive. She was diagnosed as having growth hormone deficiency. After all of these tests he told us insurance doesn't pay-which he would have known from day one. She has since been diagnosed by another Dr. with Turner Syndrome and hypothyroidism. She will need lifetime care which he completely missed after all those tests.

I would not be where I am today without Dr. Swinyard. He was the one that was able to find the obscure brain tumor I had. He was the one that guided my family and me all throughout my treatment. He was always so understanding and comforting. During my appointments, he would always talk directly to me (not my parents) and always made sure I understood everything that was happening. He was incredibly patient with my parents as well, who didn't understand english medical terminology very well.

Great doctor with a horrible staff.
New York, NY |
I like Dr. Swinyard, but his staff is the worst I have ever met. It takes at least 10 phone calls to get a refill between my pharmacy and them, the billing staff has billed me instead of my son even when I pointed it out. They did it again while I was on the phone. I am trying to switch Drs, but I can't because the other Dr wants to see medical records. I sent my signed request a month ago and they still haven't sent them over.
