    How was your appointment with Dr. Swensson?

    Feb 01, 2019
    Dr. Swensson was my daughters doctor when I was 20 weeks pregnant. I was blessed that he moved from San Diego to Orange County when she was two as he saved her life by taking the time and running tests that were necessary, something her other doctor didn't do. My daughter was in the hospital a week later for her first open heart surgery. Without Dr. Swensson she would not be here today. He has provided great care for 18 years, I would recommend him to everyone.
