What People Say About Dr. Michael Szwerc, MD
Reply
Dr. Szwerc is an awesome, amazing, and brilliant surgeon. He makes you feel as if you are the only patient he has and really spends time to get to know you as well as your family. He explains everything and is extremely thorough in his diagnosis. I hit the lottery when he was recommended to me for my cancerous lung tumor. His office staff is just like him --- first class!
