Verified Patient Reviews
Excellent visit everyone was wonderful. The doctor spent a lot of time with me and answered all my questions and started a treatment plan.
First doctor I have seen in a long time that didn't treat me like "fast food" medicine, rushing me in and out. He took the time to get to know you and ask good questions.
Conversational and helpful. Respectful and easy to talk to.
Dr. Swami was fantastic! I was in need of a pulmonary function test for a job and was able to book an appointment right away. Dr. Swami went above and beyond to ensure my needs were met. He was kind, attentive, courteous, and professional throughout the entire appointment. Definitely recommending him for my family and friends!
I am so thankful to have found Dr. Swami! I have suffered multiple lung infections this past year, and he listened intently and asked questions while taking notes to discuss my health history. I never felt rushed at all. He was very supportive in discussing what the options are to look more closely at my lung health. He took me through lung function tests, and has been incredibly supportive of helpful in scheduling other tests including allergy testing, CAT scan, blood work. I feel like I am in excellent hands with Dr. Swami. Plus, the front desk is awesome as well. I'd highly recommend Dr. Swami to anyone looking for a Pulmonologist!
Dr. Swami was fantastic. I have not been in for a regular checkup in probably a decade, and Dr. Swami took the time to really get to know me and dig into my background. I am not sure I was looking to get back into a yearly physical/health routine, but I definitely will be now. Highly recommend Dr. Swami.
