Specialties

Dr. Michael Swinyard has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Endocrinology

    Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
    They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

He missed a big diagnosis with my daughter

Dr Swinyard ran a lengthy series of tests on my daughter-blood work, urine, bone x-ray, pelvic ultrasound, 5 hour growth hormone test and a brain MRI. They were invasive and expensive. She was diagnosed as having growth hormone deficiency. After all of these tests he told us insurance doesn't pay-which he would have known from day one. She has since been diagnosed by another Dr. with Turner Syndrome and hypothyroidism. She will need lifetime care which he completely missed after all those tests.

Type1mom

Dr. Michael Swinyard is the best of the best Pediatric Endocrinologist in the Intermountain West. Our son has been his patient since he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 2yrs. Now 22 years later our son continues to see Dr. Mike. He has shown great interest in every aspect of our son's life. Always encouraging, and educating, making a hard diagnosis seem doable. Dr. Swinyard has a giant heart, you feel like you always have a friend just a phone call away. As parents we would recommend him 110%.

Amazing Doctor!

Dr. Swinyard is an amazing doctor. My daughter saw him for 3 years and his staff and the doctor were absolutely wonderful to work with. I don't understand the bad reviews some of the things said don't even sound like him. We always received best bedside manner, prompt,kind and compassionate care from Dr. Swinyard and his staff.

One Star

Absolutely awful!!!! First visit was ok. I didn't know if Dr. Swinyard was just having a bad day or if he just normally had bad "bedside manners". Had our first follow up and it was the worst experience I've ever had with a doctor. Called my daughter obese to her face. (she's about 5'6" and 230 lbs.....so yes overweight but she knows that!). Also, when so far as to say that I didn't care enough about my daughter and her medical well-being to "allow" her to continue having problems. I will NEVER, ABSOLUTELY NEVER see him again. And after reading some of the review for his PA - might leave this clinic all together. For the well-being of your child, PLEASE do not see Dr. Swinyard. He only cares about himself - not the patient!!

Unpleasant

Dr. Swinyard is temperamental and judgemental. He only listens to what he wants to hear. He had the audacity to make a threat where divorced parents were concerned regarding recommending taking away one parent's rights to visitation with their child! He is very one sided and will not even try to listen to reason or valid concern. Basically what he says goes. I have known two patients who have terminated his care for them, due to some of these reasons. He may present a certain way in the hospital when things are new and he is trying to snag a new patient, but once you get settled in, his true colors shine. This man has no business practicing medicine, especially where children are concerned. He is by far the most insensitive know-it-all in the pediatric medical field. Only a fool would continue to allow his say in the care of their ill child.
