Dr Swensson has been treating my son for 15 yrs. my son is now 31 and has severe hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. We have had doctors all over the country From Columbia univ to being followed for 10 yrs at the National institute of Health and Loma Linda who referred us to Dr Swensson. In nearly 32 yrs of seeing Drs I have never come across a more caring and compassionate person. We love Dr Swensson and so grateful to have him. His kindness moves me to tears. He is by far the best.

I am still waiting on Dr. Swensson to call me back with my child's echo results going on 2 months now. It should have been within 7-10 days and I have called and left several messages. We are talking about a small child who has a history of cardiac issues, has already had open heart surgery and has been close to passing several times. Disgusted.
