My visit with Dr Swanson was ok. He listened to my concerns. I have been thru 4 months of different Rx's from my primary Dr that offered no relief. Dr Swanson gave me a nasal spray the cleared the congestion, stoppedthe coughing and 20 gallons of PND. CT Scan and allergy tests are next. The wait seemed to take forever.

After checking my files to see if any thing had changed, I sat down to read before I was called. I didn't sit long. Dr. Swanson was great. He took time to tell me about my situation (which ended not beinga physical problem itself, but one related to some drugs I take), to suggest ways to cope, to find out what I was doing with my other specialists, and to recommend a therapist should I feel that I need it. He used good examples and is always very pleasant. Like him a lot.

Dr. Swanson was knowledgeable, reassuring, professional, quick and efficient with his exam. He gave be no false hopes that my titinitis could be resolved. He shared his opinion that patients that use Google to diagnose medical conditionsidentified with symptoms should be careful, but that exploring Google post diagnosis was very helpful for patients.

The wait time was LONG - 30 min in the waiting room and another 25+ min in the actually exam room. He examined me and diagnosed what was wrong quickly, bedside manner wasn't super friendly, but wasn't a huge deal. Saidhe sent in the prescriptions electronically to the pharmacy and they'd be ready when I got there. When I got to the pharmacy they hadn't even received them (this was 45 minutes later) and had to call the dr and have them resend. Ended up in the pharmacy for an hour, so overall wasn't thrilled.
