The doctor has good listening skills and has a kind and thoughtful bedside manner.
she was very patient, kind, and thorough with my sad, scared kiddo. thank you!
I was breast feeding my child when Dr. Swanson walked in the room and not only was she respectful but she commented on how breast milk was the best fluid for a child that is sick and or throwing up which made me feel good. Also, while checking my son in for a walk in sick visit he threw up and the receptionist was extremely helpful hurrying to grab me a full pack of wipes, a bag, and also a throw up bag. This particular receptionist (I cannot remember her name) is always very kind and friendly.
Dr. Swanson answers all the questions my daughter had in a very courteous manner.
dr. Swanson is excellent and has been supportive, educational and a wonderful resource for our family. bad: the staff that are responsible for prescriptions!!!! I was told erroneous information about my daughters prescription and was told she would need to go without her medication while we were on vacation due to a "state law" that doesn't exist. my daughter takes a stimulant and has never had an issue with this. I work in the healthcare field and was able to ask to speak with a supervisor to get this resolved.
I am so glad I took my daughter to the Dr office that day. Dr. Swanson will be my official Doctor for my daughter. She had a calm to her and really got my daughter to talk to her.
Dr. Swanson and the team do a great job with our kids. They are greatly appreciated!
Dr. Swanson spent a ton of time with us, and listened intently, without making us feel rushed. She has valuable insight to our specific issues, and I couldn't be happier with the way the visit went.
All of the doctors and nurses at CCP Gibsonia are very nice and considerate!
Dr. Swanson is very informative and helpful.
very knowledgable and friendly
We've had Dr. Swansen for walk-ins in the past and she is an excellent physician. She's able to calm my daughter's nerves.
Dr. Hedi Swanson is the best doctor in the entire world. please promptly give her a raise!
so impressed with dr Swanson and the time she spent with us. we see dr lagnese in the harmar office for well visits and go to gibsonia for urgent care and always have such a great experience
We drive a far distance just to see Heidi Swanson. She is the absolute best.
we were very pleased with her knowledge and kind presentation towards our child.
Dr. Swanson was absolutely wonderful! we are first time parents and our son was only a few days old and not thriving and Dr. Swanson spent a lot of time with us answering our questions and helping us make a plan. She was very patient and kind and made us feel very calm and comfortable.
love all the doctors we have ever seen here
Dr. Swanson is very sweet and puts children at ease with her pleasant personality.
more than pleased with dr Swanson. she is our top choice in providers. dr Swanson is very informative and knowledgeable and explains things very clearly and calmly. we highly recommend her to family and friends. she is the BEST!
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Swanson and her staff. From our first visit she was kind, patient, helpful, and encouraging. We had several difficulties which she did everything in her power to help us with.
She did not instill a lot of confidence when asking me how she should proceed. "Would you like me to do a throat culture?" "Would you like me to do the rapid test?" "Would you like me to send away the swab for the regular test?"
