Although I have only been a patient for a short time, I trust Dr. Swanson completely. When I was in an emergency situation with preeclampsia, Dr. Swanson calmly and clearly explained our options and her recommendations. She did not sugarcoat or try to minimize the severity of the situation. She listened closely to my unique concerns and did not mind talking through my questions but maintained her efficiency. She was precise and inspired confidence during and extremely stressful time. During follow-up appointments, when the concern shifted to monitoring for postpartum depression, Dr. Swanson went out of her way to be less clinical and more emotionally encouraging and supportive. She is a detail-oriented, no-nonsense personality who really cares for her patients. I appreciate her balanced approach and her calm demeanor.
