Very nice physician!

Very nice physician! I had a skiing injury and it was scary being so far from home (I live in Florida). Dr. Swanson made me feel comfortable and he reassured me that I would recover just fine.

Very kind and caring

Dr. Swanson and his medical assistant are both very kind and caring. They made me feel very comfortable and addressed all of my questions and concerns.
