I have seen Dr. Swanson for several different health issues over the years and he has always taken great care of me. His staff is very kind and has always made me feel comfortable in very uncomfortable situations. Dr. Swanson genuinely cares about his patients.

He is very good and profesional at what he does. I was very lucky ( blessed) to get him. Ì had to have emergency gall-bladder surgery, it was a complicated surgery. He did ìt without any problems. Very satisfied!
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!!
