FYI: As a provider within the network he agreed to join, Dr. Swanson denies acceptance of a patient's copay and requires the patient to pay for the examination. The network copay is less than the fee for the examination. A patient must pay the additional fee. Staff said insurance companies will not reimburse the doctor for the examination. After inquiring with the insurance carrier, the carrier stated they will pay. The insurance company allows this to happen. All parties say legal. I say beware

Worst experience I have have ever had with an office. Melanie Martin the so-called billing department manager doesn't know a thing about insurance, I had to tell her how to a CORRECT my claim. I finally threatened to talk to call the doctor about the problem when she FINALLY was able to get it through her thick head how to correct my bill! She is the RUDEST AND MOST FAKE PERSON I HAVE EVER MET! ! Great Doctor, HORRIBLE STAFF!!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
