we saw Dr. Susan for over 17 years and recommend her very highly! she takes her time and welcomes you as she walks into the room with a big smile and hand shake. she saved my husbands life. Very easy to talk with and very personable. We moved out of town and believe me I hated to leave her, it was a very hard decision. She is very knowledgeable and cares for her patients. My husband and I both loved her.

Dr. Susan treated both my husband and I for the past 15 yrs. She is excellent. Always listens to my concerns and has good recommendations. I recommended Dr. Susan to a young friend of mine. She is very happy with her help and will continue .

It seems Dr. Schwerdtfeger cares more about making money with appointments & testing than actually caring for her patients. I was told by a nurse to come in today for a follow up test and that Dr. Schwerdtfeger WOULD be able to quickly TALK TO ME about the test result. After the test I waited two hours and then they told me she would NOT talk to me today. I asked if she could call me and the response was that I needed an appointment. I am so frustrated & have NO GUIDANCE on how to get better

Best doctor ever. Especially for geriatric patients. I originally took my mom to see her back in 2002. After seeing how excellent she was with my mom, I transferred to her. Been with her ever since. God bless you, Dr. Susan!
