Dr. Swenson is an excellent physician and surgeon. He is very gentle and a great doctor. He has done several surgeries for me and has always done a great job. He knows his stuff. His staff is fantastic too.

Our son broke his nose in collision with a knee at a trampoline park. It was bad. Dr. Swenson did a great job of fixing it. After the surgery Dr. Swenson wrote prescriptions for his pain. But, he had us switch him off of heavy pain killers to Tylenol and Advil as soon as possible.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
He ordered a CT scan without explaining why. He recommended a heavy medication regime, for my post nasal drip. He gave a very a complicated explanation as to why each medication was necessary, but wouldn't give me a typed copy to take home to study. He was not very approachable and rather firm that he was the expert. I followed all his instructions for a full month with no relief. I am getting a second opinion. While I was checking in, there was one staff who loudly butted in.
