Dr Sweetenham is an amazing physician-not only is he knowledgeable in his field but he is caring and compassionate. He is respectful to the patient and to family members and is forthright in answering questions and concerns. He spends time listening and never makes me feel rushed during the appointment. He is also concerned about my total care-referring me to a dermatologist and to Dr Marshall Smith for my severed laryngeal nerve and voice problems. In addition, he went above and beyond when our daughter (who is not a patient of his) required knee surgery by giving her a referral to an orthopedic surgeon. My wife and I are confident that I am receiving the best possible care from Dr Sweetenham and the Huntsman Cancer Institute for my leukemia and we give him our highest recommendation.UofU Patient June 12, 2016
