I have been a patient of Dr. Sward’s for 18 years. He takes time with me at every visit, and I greatly trust his medical opinion. He’s one of the best.

Can't get in when sick. Miss Treatment. Had to go to E.R. because he would not put me on any meds. that I needed, got so sick had to go to E.R. and the E.R. doctors wanted to know why my doctor was not doing anything for me. E.R. doctors were not happy since Dr. Sward is in the same hospital. The last time I went in to his office ,I was told that I only get 10 min. with Sward. He did not listen to what was wrong, wrote thing down wrong. The ins. co. still pay him the same amount/10 min as 30min.
