“Dr. Swartz was great! I went in for a sore throat I had for over 3 weeks. He gave me a thorough evaluation and prescribed some medicine. My sore throat was gone in 2 days!”

“I had an in person visit, adhering to all COVID restrictions and was never so impressed with what a fantastic doctor Keith A. Swartz is.  I have seen 3 other doctors for sleep apnea over the past 12 years.  One a needed change, one retired and one due to insurance.  I thought I had good doctors before, but none were as thorough or took the time to really investigate what was causing my apnea and the options to treat it.  I am so impressed with his approach to this, how kind he an his staff are and wish I’d found in year ago.  Very excited about the help I need!”
