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!

Dr. Swain is incredible!

Dr. Swain in the most compassionate and thorough surgeon and doctor that I've ever been to. He is really personable, extremely good at his job, and understands the many facets of obesity. I can honestly say that I know Dr. Swain cares about me as a person, and is vested in my overall health. I am 6 months post op from the VSG, and attribute my successful weight loss to all of the education and tools that were given to me by Dr. Swain and his staff. If you are struggling with obesity, I'd encourage you to go through a consultation with him. From the very first conversation I had with him, I felt completely at ease and knew that I was in good hands. I have been extremely impressed, and have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Swain.

Arrogant and rude

I saw him in the hospital on an emergency basis. Without seeing films he was sure he knew what was wrong with me. After participating in my endoscopy he confirmed his diagnosis an scheduled surgery the next day. However, every in hospital visit after that went like this ,"Good morning Doctor, I have a question." Dr Swain would reply, "Well make it fast. I have patients awaiting surgery." I never got a good morning, how are you feeling, nothing. He would prescribe meds after he left that did not work well the first few dasy
