Dr Swanson has always treated me with respect. He is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. He does not sugar coat anything and may tell you things you don't want to hear but you should believe him. I've heard some say he doesn't have a friendly disposition. I thought he was fine but then again I was seeking a professional, not a new buddy.

Dr. Swanson is the 4th neurologist my daughter has seen since being diagnosed 3 years ago with Pachygyria. Dr. Swanson is the first neurologist that made me feel like my Presley who is minimally effected also needs to be given thorough and thoughtful care! He also made me feel very confident that he wasn't going to "medicate" her problem away which is something we have struggled with in the past. I would highly recommend Dr Swanson who was highly recommended to me.

One of the most compassionate, straightforward , aggressive eplitologist we have had the privets care for our son. Boise community lost a well needed expert in epilepsy. Thomas was well versed in new medications and pushed for alternative products . We miss his humor, honesty, availability , explaining epilepsy and contributing factors. We love and miss Thomas Swanson MD Sincerely Kelly Anne and Zachary Winkler

Dr Swanson helped me to control my partial seizures. After more than a decade of treatment under a handful of neurologists my seizures were increasing in frequency. A single drug had left me with side effects and seizures. A friend knew Dr Swanson and his work in the neurological field helped me decide to seek a 2nd opinion. After 4 months and the most attention I have ever recieved from a single Dr my health is back. I switched drugs with confidence and the care needed to find a solution
