My visit was fantastic and Dr. Swain is very professional and knowledgeable. He explained and answered all my questions accordingly.
Dr. Swain is very attentive and intelligent. Very impressed with him and the whole staff.
Initially i thought he was ok and was going to get a double surgery. Things went downhill from there. The secretary for the 2nd doctor was disrespectful, the visit was odd. After i called Dr. Swain and he seemed receptive but after and never got a follow up and when I recvd a CT scan report i called numerous times about it since there was more in store then the initial visit. The only communication I recvd was from the billing agent about what the plastic surgery portion was gonna cost. But even then i told her that I didnt know how to communicate since no one had even been in contact with me. She even agreed. I cannot do business with people that have such disregard for me.
Dr. Swain is a professional in every sense of the word. He answered all of my questions and concerns. He is mild mannered and very polite. I highly recommend him.
