Dr. Swift was my mother's pulmonologist at Fauquier Hospital when she passed away. He had the worst bedside manner of any doctor I've ever encountered. He was abrupt and rude and utterly lacking in any compassion toward her or us as her family. My mother was the most gentle soul you've ever met and didn't deserve that kind of treatment in the last days of her life.
