I had been in pain for years and finally came to see Dr Swaid after a relative shared with me how much better they were doing following their neck surgery. It was the best decision I've made in years. I feel like I'm 20 years younger.
in Birmingham, AL |
He was ready to perform surgery then admitted it wouldn't resolve the problem. Seemed to be offended when questions were asked. He said the nurse should have answered our questions about the surgery. He doesn't like to answer questions. He seems to be the type of Doctor that wants you to do whatever he tells you without questions. When I said we are told to be proactive about our health, his response was that's highly over rated.

Excellent Bedside manners. Genuinely concerned with every person he sees.
in Lake Martin, AL |
Very good. Less than 4 weeks after surgery I have no pain when walking. However the brace is on for 4 more weeks. But that I ok.

Dr. Swaid was extremely knowledgeably and professional. He was able to determine what needed to be done in a timely fashion.
in Birmingham, AL |
When I had a questionable MRI, I called Dr. Swaid for advice. He immediately reviewed the MRI and called me personally to tell me to get to his office. He literally met me at the front door and walked me through what would have otherwise been a scary process. He was great. I would highly Dr. Swaid.
in Birmingham, AL |
I have had two surgeries with Dr.. Swaid, neck and back. Both times have been very successful..I highly recommend him and have done so with several people. They have used him and feel the same way.
