Extremely Happy Client - Barb

Dr. Swainis the best. Very personable, and his team leaves nothing to question. The key eye for detailed understandable information is what sold me to go with Dr. Swain. Even though my insurance did not cover the procedure, it was the best investment I made in myself.

Best Surgeon I've had

I had a difficult revision surgery to remove an eroded mesh. Dr. Swain was able to make a quick and necessary decision after seeing that the surgery was more difficult that it showed in the pre-op tests. He was at the hospital every day after surgery to make sure I was OK, even on weekends. I am doing wonderful thanks to his care and his staff support.

RNY Patient @ Scottsdale Shea

Dr. Swain is the FIRST doctor that I felt like really listened to me, and so much so, I asked him if I could give him a hug. I know it sounds cheesy, but if you knew me, you'd know that giving hugs to random strangers, especially a physician, is definitely outside of the norm for me. I would absolutely recommend him!
