21/10/13 4 3 3 4 Good doctor.. But, horrible bedside matter.... I was in the hospital for 6 days.. Found out the reason for the stay.. but, he was very rude and at one point left the room without a goodbye, or I will be back.. Seemed very irate.. I was a patient in a hospital bed not really knowing what to do. And he left me hanging. Will not recommend him to anyone.. By the way. I have waited for him to call me to say sorry. And still nothing.

28/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Swerdlow is fantastic! I was treated by local cardiologists for almost 2 years before entering Cedar-Sinai and finding Dr. Swerdlow. Dr. Swerdlow gave me every imaginable test to determine my problem before recommending a pacemaker. He was able to go back and complete the procedure by implanting a pacemaker. Everyone in the hospital that day, from nurses to the Medtronics Rep, commented to me that they observed his work how lucky I was to have had him for the implant. I cannot say enough about Dr. Charles Swerdlow, his staff of nurses and technicians. Since I do not live close to Beverly Hills I have tried other cardiologists closer to home over the past 6 years and none come close to the care and support I received from Dr. Swerdlow and his staff. I would go back to him in a heartbeat even if it meant traveling 2,000 or 3,000 miles for his services. I would definitely recommend anyone with a heart problem to make the effort to seek him out and have him be your doctor.
