I did not see Dr. Swamy as she was out that day. I saw the male doctor. He was excellent. But the nurses, or assistants, were a bit unprofessional. They kept leaving the door open while I was in a gown. No big deal, it was just weird. The doctor was so good though. He took the time to answer all of my questions and explained everything to me. He made me feel so optimistic about my future with allergies.

I had a chronic cough for almost a year. I had seen a regular doctor at least eight times and a pulmonologist five times about it and neither could figure out what was wrong. Dr. Swamy diagnosed me and prescribed medicine that stopped the cough after one appointment. She's also a warm and friendly doctor who made me feel like she really cared about fixing what was wrong with me. Highly recommended.

Great visit with very nice staff. The doctor was a few minutes late, as it was the start of the morning and I had the first appointment, but the staff were very nice. I still had some questions at the end that I should have stuck around to ask, but that's more on me. I found Dr. Swamy very personable and warm.

The office was clean and friendly. The nurses would greet the patients by name as they walked in--it was a very comfortable place to be. Dr. Swamy listens, is articulate and very helpful. Although she said she didn't think my migraines were directly linked to allergies, she went out of her way to find me some headache specialists in the area. Definitely one of the best doctors I have seen.

I loved Dr. Swamy. I made my appointment last minute and the office contacted me right away. I requested allergy testing but didn't realize i had to be off of antihistamines for a few days before. Dr. Swamy still agreed to see me. She listened to symptoms, provided me with information I needed, and sent me to have blood work done. She was able to ease my fears about the issues I was having. Her bedside manner was excellent.

I switched from another allergist in Tysons Corner, due to experiencing three years of very poor service (bad attitudes) and administration. Dr Swamy is knowledgeable, timely, professional, great with kids and really takes her time to explain things. Her staff members are the same.
