      Dr. Swicker was referred to me by a friend who is a physician and also goes to Dr. Swicker. Dr. Swicker is a brilliant diagnostician, takes time to explain things, is very caring and supportive. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Swicker without hesitation.

      I was told I would have to wait over a year before he could see me. In the meantime, I would have to settle for one of his PA-Cs. She looked at my prescription list (which has remained mostly unchanged for 20 years) and said she would not write some of the controlled substances and would refer me to other specialists. She also would force me to change to other types of drugs which have proven ineffective for me in the past. Do not expect to be treated as an individual here.
