Dr. Christine L Swensen has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

this is an amends for an incident in the mid-90s

i have bi-polar disorder, and Dr.Swensen had to do an exam on me. i remember how frightened i was, and that i was confused and not sure of who she was. i reacted, and i think i may have been verbally abusive. there were triggers of past hurts that had NOTHING to do with her. I remember (last year, only) her respectfulness, her understandable confusion, and her compassion. i am so sorry for my actions/attitudes, and i hope it'll re-inforce to you that we interact on a heart level in ways we don't remember, and may not even be aware of. i hope you can forgive the effects of my disease, and that you will be able to remain open-minded and open-hearted to those with wounded hearts. mother teresa said, 'we cannot do great things, but we can do small things with great love.' i worked with your dad (who came to my wedding in 1976), and i'm sure he is proud of you.
