I appreciate that even when I come into the office unsure of medical issues or next steps, Kiersten will put me at ease and help me know if my body is acting normally or abnormally.

January 09, 2017

she always cares about me and talks to so I understand and then repeats and goes over to make sure. I am confident in my provider!

December 31, 2016

the male nurse was very nice, the female filling nurse and doctor seemed very uncaring and pushy. really, I just needed a new primary care physician, but I don't want to go back to the one that seemed indifferent to everything. I know it was kind of late, but the doctor made me feel like I was just numbers and a waste of time. the femal nurse was the worst I've ever met. She seemed to treat me like I was a waste of her time and just kept repeating things in an annoyed tone. I wasn't asking questions that were stupid, but she shoved a release form in my face and said I needed to sign it and she needed to sign it as if her signing it would be an inconvenience to her. I still don't understand health care that is this uncaring, and honestly, I probably won't be back to this clinic because of how the care providers acted. I'm not asking for over the top care or interest, just be friendly.

December 21, 2016

all good

December 11, 2016

short waiting time

December 02, 2016

Best help I have received at the clinic. I have finally received treatment that is making me feel better after MANY months of trying to get help I finally met someone that was willing to address my issue and listen to me, rather than to leave me without any hope. I am so happy with this provider and her dedication to helping me, even though my case was difficult.

November 27, 2016

Kiersten is great -- I always feel very well taken care of.

November 22, 2016

Dr. Swindle did a great job talking to me about what I needed and spoke in a way that wasn't condescending, but easy for a patient (me) to understand. She took her time and listened and helped create a plan that worked for me.

November 20, 2016

I had a great experience, and the doctor was very nice and pleasant to be around. She did a great job explaining everything to me and answering my questions.

November 16, 2016

I have recommended my provider to others. I feel that she's always been attentive.

November 04, 2016

Dr. Swindle is the best of the best. She is caring, informative and easy going. I would highly recommend her.

October 28, 2016

Kiersten Swindle is an excellent provider! I felt very comfortable talking to her and I felt like she really listened. I am also confident in her abilities and knowledge. I would definitely recommend her!

September 29, 2016

dr swindle was nice and helpful as always but I didn't like the student doctor which did not respect the language I used (English as second language)

September 12, 2016

Kiersten took time and made sure i knew what was going on. she then made sure i understood the plan going forward. she then followed up. she made a bad experience pleasant. would recommend her to any and every one

June 08, 2016

Swindle is my favorite provider.

May 28, 2016

I've always appreciated my experience with physician's assistants.

May 20, 2016

She did a great job. Very happy to work with her!

May 20, 2016

Kirsten is the best doctor I've had since I was a kid!

May 06, 2016

One of the best primary care visits I have had.

May 03, 2016

Kierstein Swindle is always very warm and welcoming. Her friendly and open manner make it very easy to communicate any issues I have. I actually look forward to coming for my appts. because I know she'll listen to what I have to say and be honest in her opinion.

May 01, 2016

I made a follow up appointment for my annual physical with the same provider.

April 30, 2016

She was excellent. very kind and willing to take time with me to address any/all concerns I had.

April 29, 2016

Very pleased with the care I recieved

April 13, 2016

nurse was not very helpful but the doctor was very helpful. She gave me a follow up message. I liked this doctor very much and would like to see her again.

April 05, 2016

Overall a great experience!

April 03, 2016

Kiersten is a very good and well informed PA. She spent more than enough time with me to discuss my symptoms and then explore what could be causing it. She ordered the correct tests to rule out serious conditions. She followed up with me after a few days. A+

March 09, 2016

K. Swindle was the best doctor I've ever visited with. honestly, she has wonderful bedside manor, put me to ease and listened and gave me any information that could help me. I have never had such a positive and all-around great experience with a doctor. Even after I left, she had her assistant follow up with me to make sure I was ok after the visit and felt good about everything we talked about. i can't say enough good things about my visit with her.

March 07, 2016

We love Swindle! She is empathic and listens. She has taken really good care of my daughter and myself over the last year or so.

February 18, 2016

Already have recommended this clinic and my caregiver

February 06, 2016

she was great easy to talk with and understand.

January 25, 2016

She did not knock the door before entering the room. And she did not clean her hands carefully before the exam. Please prompt hygiene habit right before any exam. Thank you.

January 23, 2016

Miss swindle is wonderful im very very happy with her as my provider .

January 15, 2016

Dr. Swindle was great!

January 14, 2016

Kiersten Swindle is fantastic, especially about following up!

January 08, 2016

Very professional...excellent provider...efficient...diagnosed well...helped me by getting me into pulmonary through emergency since the clinic were turned out to be very necessary since I had aspirated a pill that had to be removed through bronchoscopy

December 29, 2015

With all the tests and different doctors I still haven't got a clear answer on why my legs have swollen up and why my weight keeps climbing. A ton of money spent and no answers.

December 18, 2015

I LOVED the PA that worked with me. She was well informed, kind and made me feel good about my condition. Would definitely recommend her.

December 13, 2015

Kirsten Swindle is very good with my anxious teenager.

December 08, 2015

Quick diagnosis and treatment of a skin rash on my child, and Ms. Swindle followed up to make sure it cleared up. She is lovely!

December 02, 2015

I was pleasantly surprised. This provider did an excellent job explaining the issue, having empathy, and giving me treatment options.

November 18, 2015

Great and very reassuring.

November 06, 2015

I have lots of confidence in PA Swindle and would recommend her, but this visit was primarily conducted with a student, who was great, but not as confidence-inspiring as the PA.

November 05, 2015

Swindle was also kind enough to send me a message through MyChart to check on my condition.

October 29, 2015

Miss swindle was just grand all the way around.

October 26, 2015

I was examined by a student for much of the exam. The PA did come in and do a quick exam, but seemed rushed and it seemed like she wanted to just unload me onto the ER even though I didn't want to go to the ER.

October 13, 2015

My PA (Swindle) was really kind, asked good questions, answered all of my questions, took her time getting to know me as a patient.

October 05, 2015

Kiersten was wonderful in treating my infection while also referring me for further tests to resolve an ongoing issue. She validated my concerns and was thorough in her examination and questions.

October 01, 2015

Kiersten M Swindle was awesome as well as her student PA. They listened, they were thoughtful and were spot on!

September 09, 2015

Ms Swindle was kind and thorough, I would recommend her to others

September 01, 2015

My only 2 piece of feedback is that I had mentioned that I drink a lot of fruit juice, and I learned later that some medications for my condition can interact negatively with Grapefruit juice, this wasn't mentioned to me during my visit. The second was just that Kiersten seemed a little busy, so I didn't have a lot of time to discuss other things with her.

August 31, 2015

There wasn't any tests run, I would prefer if some tests are run when I go to the doctor.

August 29, 2015

I really like Kiersten. She also had a medical student with her. I can't remember her name, but she was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful as well.

August 08, 2015

This may have been explained to me, but I was unclear about why I was taking the medication for multiple days. The dye affects the urine almost immediately, so one day seemed adequate unless there was a secondary objective. My issue escalated quickly, so the one week followup was not appropriate. However, Dr Swindle was very responsive to my emails.

July 14, 2015

Kiersten Swindle was wonderful. Her care and concern were obvious, she didn't seem rushed and I felt she definitely took a personal interest in getting to know me and my situation. I have already recommended her to a few of my friends. She has a very warm, knowledgeable approach.

June 21, 2015

Kiersten was very thorough in explainations and diagnoses. She offered a variety of options for treatment. Took time and answered all my questions.

May 20, 2015

Unfortunately this visit was just disappointing over all, the provider appeared to have already diagnosed me before seeing me, and didn't seem to have the time to even do a through exam, it was just a rush rush visit,

May 19, 2015

she took the time needed with me to address all my concerns

May 19, 2015

Have already recommended just today! and even recommended the clinic to a neighbor!

May 15, 2015

Kiersten is very professional and informative. she listens to me and responds well.

May 15, 2015

I wasn't sure if I was prescribed something and needed to pick it up at a pharmacy or if it was OTC.

May 11, 2015

Dr. Swindle was very good. High quality care!

May 05, 2015

Kirsten Swindle, PA was an excellent provider. She listened, cared and treated me with great respect. Excellent diagnosis and treatments.

April 26, 2015

Both the PA and her student were great.

April 20, 2015

Excellent health care provider. We appreciated her kind, compassionate nature as well as her excellent clinical skills and knowledge.

April 13, 2015

Dr. Swindle is terrific! She was competent and caring and decided to treat my sore throat even though the rapid strep test came back negative. I'm so glad she did because I started feeling better even before the culture came back showing a positive for strep. I really appreciated her competence and care!

March 25, 2015

She's wonderful.

March 20, 2015

Excellent. Kiersten was very on top of my situation.

February 27, 2015

Kierstin Swindle was awesome. Answered all my questions and I felt I could be very honest with her and she was honestly answering my questions without judgement.

February 17, 2015

I am so happy that Kristen has come back from her maternity leave. I have 100% confidence that she is doing the best treatments for my overall healthcare. She is kind and listens to have the patient has to say and providing the best treatment plans.

February 13, 2015

I didn't feel like she really understood that I was concerned with the recurrence of my illness, though this particular incident wasn't that serious. Then again, I was just seeing her as a one-off, get in as soon as possible kind of situation. Maybe she is different with her regular patients. She was nice and respectful, but didn't seem particularly thorough.

January 19, 2015

My Dr,Dr Swindle Is The Best!!!

October 16, 2014

She is new and it shows. She likes to refer to other disciplines instead of dealing with stuff herself.

October 13, 2014

I have already recommended this PA to several people. She sat down and listened to every concern I had and didn't make me feel rushed. She went over each problem in detail and suggested treatment options for each condition. She was very thorough and it seemed that she really cared. She provided me with lots of information on my diagnosies and was very willing to answer any more questions I had.

October 03, 2014

Ignored my problem and mis-diagnosed it. I ended up in the emergency room 3 days later for the same problem I was trying to address with this visit.

October 02, 2014

Took my concerns seriously and did not make me feel foolish about expressing them. Got extra info from pharmacy and Moran before prescribing meds. Quiet reassuring presence.

September 18, 2014

She didnt even address 3 of the things I mentioned about myself. for example rigorous stomach aches, etc.

September 11, 2014

I really liked Dr. Swindle. I had one concern about my daughter. She assessed the area of concern. She was honest enough with me to say she hadn't seen enough babies before or at least this problem on enough babies to know if it should be concerning to us. She politely asked if I wouldn't mind if she brought in another provider to look at it. I appreciated her honesty. Thank you.

September 04, 2014

Dr. Swindle will always be my first choice. She is fantastic! Its nice to have a PA with clear, concise information and friendliness. Thanks!

September 02, 2014

Kirsten was great but I only had a few minutes with her. The nurse asked me a ton of questions and then a student came in and asked me a ton of the same questions. I hardly saw the PA

September 02, 2014

Everyone involved with my appointment was professional and helpful. It was a very positive experience.

August 24, 2014

I saw both a PA student and then follow up with the physician. It was a good experience.

August 18, 2014


August 09, 2014

PA did not provide appropriate counseling for my prescription pills.

August 05, 2014

I already recommend her to my daughter

July 24, 2014

She was great. Keep her!

July 20, 2014

Good job. Provider was knowledgeable about issues addressed

July 07, 2014

The PA was very good at her job. The medical student who was shadowing her was also very good and made an excellent suggestion about the plan of treatment.

June 30, 2014

Kirsten Swindle was great would definetley see her again

June 25, 2014

Both the PA and Doctor were very nice and professional.

June 24, 2014

Dr. Swindle was recommended by a very good friend. I came in with high expectations and was not disappointed.

June 09, 2014

Kiersten Swindle is most excellent :)

June 07, 2014

I thought that the doctor was amazing. Super friendly and cared a lot about what was going on with me. Doctor let me make the decision about what course of action I'd like to take and how to go about treating me.

May 30, 2014

Kiersten Swindle was very caring, had a good memory of my patient history, and gave me good medical advice.

May 29, 2014

Kiersten, is amazing!! she is sincere, genuine and over all very concerned about her patients. She is very knowledgeable and resourceful too. Willing to go the extra mile to make sure we are taken care of. such a God send. She is a keeper!! Couldn't ask for anyone better to help us!!

May 16, 2014

this has really ruined my outlook of continuing at this office

May 11, 2014

I really liked my care provider and would like to continue having her as my care provider.

May 06, 2014

I wish that I was informed that when I was asked if I had any other concerns, I was forgoing the free physical exam and was going to be charged a copay.

February 12, 2014

She is very new and I had multiple staff ask me how she was and if she was nice. My first visit she was a bit distant and felt she was maybe not the provider for me, but this time she was very good about talking and made me feel much more comfortable. She also apologized for any problems with the first visit.

February 05, 2014

This was a follow up appointment, and was completely useless, spent 5 minutes not addressing the actual issue, I felt like asking to have my co-pay refunded.

January 24, 2014

Would probably still recommend this clinic just would empasize talking more about prescriptions

January 21, 2014

I am going through a difficult personal issue in my life, Dr. Swindle and staff has gone above and beyond to ensure my care and needs are met. I have never been more impressed by the entire process. I thank you all so much.

January 12, 2014

Kiersten Swindle is a great PA.

December 27, 2013

It was a good experience all around.

December 03, 2013

She was very knowledgeable and helpful.

November 18, 2013

She was very well prepared, thoughtful and thorough.
