Ms. Lynne C. Mandel

I could not have been happier with the care, surgery and treatment I received from Dr. Swistel. Worst words I ever heard in my life was my breast cancer diagnosis. From moment #1 when I met Dr. Swistel through my surgery and follow-up, he could not have been more patient with my questions, concerns and overreactions and hysteria or more pleasant. Day of surgery he checked on me a few times, was even cordial to my siblings who came with me. Yearly check-ups are just as comforting. I've recommended Dr. Swistel to anyone who has gotten the horrific breast cancer diagnosis.

Dr. Swistel is everything one would want in a doctor....patient listener, extremely knowledgeable, and opts for the most effective but least invasive treatment. I would heartily recommend him to anyone diagnosed with breast cancer.
