Dr. Swillie is awesome but his staff not so much. I’m considering leaving his office solely on the fact that his office staff are terrible. I have left messages and have never been called back or I received a call back several days later. My favorite thing about the office is when I’ve left...more

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.

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.
