Very thorough and quick; very knowledgeable and friendly; sits and talks to patients; very good bedside manner plus looks much younger than age!!!!
Birmingham, AL |
Dr. Swillie is amazing! I am very pleased with my visit with him yesterday. He was very personable and made me feel like a patient instead of just a number. I will definitely refer him to others who have migraine issues just like me.
Chicago, IL |
Dr Swillie is great. Office staff are not great.
Florence, SC |
Dr Swillie is fantastic! I would give him 5 out of 5 starts if it was not for his staff. Making an appointment is a pain, you can call and leave a message and never receive a call back. You must pester them to even get a date set.
