Have you seen Dr. Melissa Swenson?
August 2nd, 2013
Seemed distracted, would half-explain things. Would not consider treatment alternatives. Treated for bladder infection, which I did not have. Referred me to a urologist in Gig Harbor when I live in north Tacoma (and did not need a urologist). Clearly lacks real life experience and applies only book knowledge. Followed up the following day with urgent care and had a completely different experience. Dr. Swenson wanted me to have a catheter for a week when I was suffering from numbness due to general anesthesia, a common complication which resolves in a day or so. Had (leaking and improperly placed) catheter removed the following morning and had no issues voiding. I have a small child and no support system. Wearing a catheter for a week straight and being referred to a urologist in Gig Harbor should've been a last resort and other options should've been explored, but she refused to consider this. Terrible experience with terrible doctor.
