Talk to me(not computer) about my health. Very negative bedside manner. No verbal explanation to me about my health.

Dr.Swanson is on the quiet side but has taken good care of my general needs. I'm almost 2 yrs new as Dr. Swanson's patient.

Staff & dr. spent a fair amount of time covering old details of care & explained this way my 1st visit under a new computer system. They handled it well.

*Dr. Swanson seems highly competent, but does not engage easily w/patients. Upon entering the exam room, he barely muttered hello then stared/worked on his computer for 7+ minutes, apparently updating my health record on a new system. I have come to expect the lack of engagement as it is his personality and I can deal with it, but many patients would be put off.

Dr. Swanson is quite knowledgeable and explains options for my care very clearly. I trust him and the advice that he gives me.

The provider didn't seem interested in any of my symptoms. His recommended that I work out 30 min a day despite me telling him that I work out 2 hours a day every day. He also ordered labs and never called me to explain my abnormal results. He sent a prescription in to the pharmacy for my high cholesterol without informing me. I only found out because the pharmacy called me to tell me my Rx was ready.
