Que es un excelente Doctor MUY proporcional
May 03, 2017
He is very knowledgeable and easy to understand. He discussed my option clearly and made it clear that I must be comfortable with what I decided.His positive support was very helpful.

Very pleasant and thorough doctor. He was direct and to the point. For areas which I questioned about my pending surgery he laid out very practical responses that increased my knowledge about the procedure and expectations. He encouraged me to write down my questions so I could remember to ask them all. He walked me through the history of the surgery, what product he would use for the implant. He clearly had studied my slides and MRI. Great doctor!

My first impression of Dr. Swanson is that his patients are his highest priority and treats them as such. He listened to all my issues, and dwelt with them in a caring manner.

I have not yet formed an opinion about v. The medical assistant was very kind and helpful. The staff is also very helpful and efficient.
February 01, 2017
A very thorough doctor. He explained the surgery I felt I needed, he has been very proactive to get it done, and showed great concern for my getting the surgery I need. I feel confident with him. I'd add that I have seen several doctors trying to find someone with his above mentioned qualities and they were all lacking. I am very glad I found him and am looking forward to a successful surgery from him.

Excellent. After the first ortho dr Rivas. I was pleased to have someone like Swanson listen to me and explain everything. You should have sent a survey for Rivas that guy deserves all zeros.

Dr. Gerald Swanson is completely competent, knowledgeable, compassionate and thorough. I have severe medical needs and Dr. Swanson's expertise and expressiveness regarding my condition is Professional and he provides the "pro's and con's" of treatment, which I appreciate wholeheartedly. It is an "honor" to be his patient. I hope and pray Sr. Swanson will be in this Specislized Profession of Ortho for many many years to come. I recommend him to anyone with Ortho medical diseases highly. 5 Stars. If I cud give him 10 Stars, I would.
