I don’t even call him a doctor, he was my mother doctor since she had Pulomanry problems. it was not a choice to select him but they were the only practice accepting Medicare, when my mother got sick in 2018 and end up going to the hospital, Swift came to her hospital room and with a really dancing mood told us that you guys have to let her go she is too old, I was very calm but my sister went off on him, from that day I fired him and I bet he doesn’t know his own mother or his mother just spit him out. He should be working as trash collector. Run away from this heartless person.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Richard Swift, MD?
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.
