"He goes the extra mile!" After trying to work w/ record heat & ash fall, Pulmonary treated me for upper chest/throat pain. Referral to Dr. Swenson & "normal tests" reassured. Minutes after leaving him I endured a truck/pedestrian (me) accident that impacted my legs/chest/back/neck. Dr. Swenson called to suggest I consider an angiogram. Days later, exhausted w/o cause I collapsed w minimal exertion. Had Emergency Angiogram confirming his instincts. A+++to Dr. Swenson & Staff & referrals !

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Swenson. Not only is he exceptionally competent, his people skills are second to no one's. Dr. Swenson has seen me through more than one serious medical procedure and they've turned out great. I'd have no reservations recommending Dr. Swenson to anyone looking for an exemplary cardiologist.
