Verified Patient Reviews
Great visit, doctor very thorough and detailed. Staff was friendly and warm.
Front office was a little discombobulated. They mixed up my appointment and said it wasn't for 2 weeks, when I had email confirmation saying otherwise. Lady working desk seemed new, plus the office manager wasn't there who I had been corresponding with, and had my completed forms. Anyway, someone with experience took matters over, and it finally got sorted out. The experience with Dr. Sweet was excellent. Friendly, good bedside manner, but also a straight-shooter, which i appreciate.
I went in for intermittent wrist pain and for more preventative purposes. I would have appreciated a more direct conversation about what steps I could take now to prevent it from getting worse. I got a general recommendation to take Advil. The intention was to rely less on google and get a professional opinion for appropriate (or professionally discouraged) courses of action but the conversation was vague at best, so I'm left with Google. Regardless, this experience will not discourage me from going back if the pain increases. He was an attentative doctor.
I like it as long I don't have to deal with pain
The staff and Dr. Sweet are kind, thorough, and friendly.
Caring, good listener, asked pertinent questions, did not rush into surgery
Dr. Sweet and his staff were extremely professional and helpful. I needed to have x-rays in the office and it was done very quickly and efficiently. Dr. Sweet reviewed the MRI results that I brought in. He explained several options and possible procedures to repair my injury. Any questions that either my wife or I asked were answered.
He took his time with the examination and discussing my symptoms. Then made his recommendations very clear and with a return date to review the test results he wanted done.
I really appreciated how well he explained his findings in my X-ray and his initial treatment plan. I like that his plan is conservative treatment without any rush for surgery as a fix. Dr. Sweet was very professional and friendly.
I felt that he really looked at me and my specific issue and had the expertise to render an opinion even if that did not involve his specialty.
I thought Dr. Sweet was great. The wait was way too long. I came in 30 minutes early to finish the paper work and then waited an hour and a half before I was taken back.
Good experience. The front office staff was pleasant. Back office staff were very good. Doctor was very good. Took time to listen to my concerns and provided intial diagnosis that was confrmed with in office x-ray. Discussed options and long term prognosis. I am not happy with my body, but I am happy with the doctor visit.
Highest praise in all areas.
Dr. Sweet saw me right away and he listened to everything I had to say about what was wrong with my knee. He already had looked at all the paperwork I had sent him. It felt like he was up to date on my case. He offered a new idea and gave a new suggestion on what I could do for pain. I saw him yesterday and today I can honestly say that my pain is a little bit better. I feel better knowing that someone took the time to read over my case and then come in and be so amazing and caring when we were face to face. I am truely that I have met Dr. Sweet. !!!!!
