Dr. Swenson's inability to tailor her practices to people' s individual needs can be very detrimental to her patient's life. When I was pregnant, my Dr was Dr. Swenson. She was very abusive during my appointments and not compassionate about my single umbulical cord baby. When I was 35 weeks she said to call If I notice if the baby decreases movements instead of creating some preventive way to save my child such as to be checked the flow going toward the baby. On 40 weeks the baby came out dead.
Dr Swenson was quite abrupt. Called me an incorrect name. Not at all attentive to my problem. Said she would phone with test results. She did NOT phone. I had to text and then only received test results from staff not Dr Swenson. Dr Swenson did not pursue further testing to alleviate the problem. Dr Swenson not prepared for senior citizen issues. I switched to another gynecologist who is dealing with my issues.
Dr. Swenson is simply the best Dr. in the world! I've been going to her for 9 years and she always takes her time and answers all my questions. She's so attentive and remembers everything we ever talk about. Very professional and knowledgeable. Schedule fast bc this woman is always busy! Also, she always returns phone calls in a timely manner.
She ordered several tests. The tests results were sent to me via email without her review of tests. I called and emailed questions that I had with no response. Eventually, (weeks later) I did receive an email that said, "everything looks fine". She never did respond to the questions I asked. I feel if you are going to order several tests and tell the patient you are going to try and figure out what is going on, make suggestions that things could be wrong,, than you should respond to the patients questions that were sent. I never initiated the need for any of the tests. She suggested all of them. My appointment was made for an annual appointment and I left with a follow up appointment and several tests being done.
