Patient Comments (1)
Parrish, FL |
Had to see Dr. McSwain for an eye mini-emergency, because my regular ophthalmologist at the practice was not available. Was pleasantly surprised by this new doctor, whom I had avoided when I started going to this office as he was just beginning his professional life.. However, he was quietly confident, attentive, responsive to queries and concerns, and inspired confidence. Time will tell if he is able to sustain his affable chair-side manner; here's hoping.
