Very happy with my visit. Dr Swanson & his PA were very thorough & friendly. Dr Swanson explained things very well & asked if I had any questions he had not covered. He was not dismissive or condescending which was a nice change. I had forgotten that I had seen him years ago or I would have come to him first. Very pleased. You

Dr. Swanson has a wonderful chairside manner. He is very polite, willing to listen to any questions I have and give a thorough answer. At the end of my visit today he thanked me for my patience during healing. As a bonus, he noticed my "Detroit Lions" facemask and informed me the Lions have a new quarterback as of this weekend, which I didn't know! I would definitely recommend Dr. Swanson and NE Orthopedic and Sports!
