A doctor's Doctor.

My wife and I are both physicians. We were referred to Dr. Sivaswamy by a physician-friend who works with Dr. S. I cannot say enough about a physician who has passion and knowledge. Dr. S evaluated my son, who was noted to have an incidental finding on imaging. These are some of the most challenging scenarios because the balance of intervention depends on a physician's knowledge base. Dr. Sivaswamy has that. She explained the pathophysiology of the lesion from its embryological state to the natural course of development. Not many physicians can do that! Thank you Dr. Sivaswamy.

Excellent neurologist

We have seen Dr. S since my daughter's first seizure in 2015. We see many other drs in her practice, but Dr. S is our main physician. She's personable, very smart and experienced. She's open to our input in our daughter's care as well. I have referred many people to her because I fully trust her.

Excellent Doctor

Our 17 year daughter recently suffered two grand mal seizures with no past history or apparent reason. Dr. Sivaswamy was wonderful. She was very kind and compassionate to me as a mother and to our daughter as a patience. I would highly recommend her,
