very professional, and friendly, conducted the yearly physical with ease and asked many health, medicine that my son takes, school and extracurricular activities questions.

February 21, 2020 7:49 AM

Dr. Swanson has been great since the moment we met her @ the hospital when X was born 1/9/2020. She listens and responds with answers that we understand. She cares for her patients as well as their parents.

February 15, 2020 2:57 PM

Dr. Swanson is responsive and courteous, we are happy with the pediatrician choice for our newborn

February 15, 2020 2:57 PM

Dr. Swanson is responsive and courteous, we are happy with the pediatrician choice for our newborn

February 13, 2020 11:49 AM

It was a wellness check. We didn't have any health issues to talk about. Thank you. Easy to get app., no wait time.

January 18, 2020 8:39 AM

This was a first visit for a newborn. Not much to rate. Dr. Swanson seemed to do a thorough examination.

December 16, 2019 10:55 PM

It's in my son's records that he had a heart murmur. Dr just noticed it for the first time this time even though the heart specialist was in the practice. wish she took the time to read up on that before coming to see us.

December 13, 2019 11:00 PM

Our provider is amazing. She is always very friendly and very helpful. She has returned calls when concerned about something very quickly. Recommend her always!

November 27, 2019 6:58 AM

Dr. Swanson is very attentive and caring. I feel comfortable asking any questions.

November 22, 2019 8:48 AM

Dr. Swanson is a fellow parent, which I appreciate. I also like her no-nonsense approach.

November 19, 2019 11:41 AM

Very pleasant experience, everyone in the office was wonderful.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

my experience with dr swanson went very well just like it did when i met her 6 months ago for my older childs welness check up. obviously i like her because both of my kids see her. the only negative about this visit was all the noise from 2 surrounding rooms and then it took a while for the doctor to see us which was annoying but not her fault cause she was with another patient. so i get it. anyway yes i like her so far i believe she is a good doctor and yes i will recommend her and her office to other people

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

I love my daughter's doctor!

August 16, 2019 7:00 PM

We really like both Doctors. We had left the practice and just recently came back.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

She's a great provider. however she does not measure my baby's head unless I ask. At the last appointment, she did not measure the head. In my opinion, it's important to do that at all the wellness visits.

April 23, 2019 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Swanson! She is very friendly, straight forward & does a great job.

April 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Christina A. Swanson MD relates well to my daughter & myself. She treats us with respect, honesty and kindness. She is responsive to our needs, expresses compassion and care and is a great mentor for my teenager. We are glad she is in our lives.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

overall, it's a great experience. had to wait quite a while for her vaccination though.

March 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr.Swanson is a great doctor and I always enjoy bringing my son to her. I like that she is to the point and does not waste your time.

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Swanson has always been a very attentive and thorough physician. She knows and remembers all of our children and their health histories.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

We normally go with child's primary physician but he was unable that day. I felt completely comfortable wto going with Dr. Swanson. She is always friendly and kind. She does not mind answering all my questions and providing me with all the information I need. She is very knowledgeable and always respectful. I would recommend Dr. Swanson to anybody.

January 23, 2019 6:00 PM

January 29, 2018 6:00 PM

Everything at the doctor's office is always pleasant. My children actually enjoy going because they feel heard and cared for. All the doctor's we have seen at the office have been extremely caring. I understand that they have a certain amount of time with each patient but the doctor's there never make me feel rushed. I am so happy I changed my children's pediatrician to Advocate.

January 21, 2018 6:00 PM
