Dr. Swamy is a wonderful person and surgeon. I was nervous for my septoplasty and rhinoplasty, but he spent time talking with me and answered all my questions. Straightening my septum helped my sinuses and breathing, and now I have a pretty nose. :-) I've recommended him to several co-workers and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT doctor/surgeon.

Dr. Swamy is amazing. I was really afraid to have my surgery. He really cared, he alleviated my fears, by holding my hand. He told me he would make certain all went well and I would be alright. He did amazing surgery and I can breath for the first time in years. He is a WONDEFUL Doctor and person. He really cares!! Thank you Dr. Swamy !!!!
