Dr. SWAID N. Swaid's Ratings
I agree with one of the patients comments below. It didn't seem like he cared enough after waiting almost a hour he came in with his physician assistant spoke with me a minute sent me to Vestavia MRI Which there findings didn't come close to the other two MRI that Brookwood hospital had administered. Got a call to do physical therapy. I am now in more pain than ever thank God I found another doctor that is about to do the nessary surgery.
Dr. said removed disc in neck back in 1998, disc above the fusion now was bad.Saw him on a Tue he had me in a surgery done on neck the following Tue. To give me time to come off meds. That would cause bleeding. Ellcellent Dr/ surgeon. Recovering now.Got me out of hospital next day before I could catch hospital infections.fantastic.
Dr Swaid performed surgery 5 years ago and since that time I have continued to have problems. I recently went to him because the pain in my leg was unbearable. After waiting for almost 2 hours, he spent less than 5 minutes with me. He ordered EMG and nerve velocity studies which were abnormal, yet his office called and said a further appointment was not necessary. I feel like I wasn't my time with two trips to Birmingham to see him and have testing done. He doesn't seem to care about his patients at all. He offered 2 weeks of physical therapy, nothing else....
Dr swaid removed 4 diisc from my neck in july 05 and it was the best thing i have had done. I have had lower back problems however he said lets wait until you can not stand the pain any more that time has came and I cant wait to see him and rid my pains he is the best and would recommend him to anyone
i remember when i was a nurse and this doctor came in a nd sat with a patient with a closed head trauma.dr swaid sat at the patient's bedside and checked neuro checks every 10 minutes himself. now ,mind you,this was in the middle of the night.i have never seen another doctor do that before or since.and this was many years ago.he is brilliant and devoted to his patients.
I was plesantly surprised to find Dr. Swaid a very attentive and caring physician. He took time to answer my questions and address my concerns. His assistant is also very nice and always returns my calls right away. I think it helped that I researched my condition and had questions prepared for him to answer.
dr swaid did an excellent job doing my surgery on my neck a year ago. His staff is very friendly and his office has a very pleasant attitude. i recommend him to any that ask about a neurosurgeon! He's the BEST in Birmingham, AL!!
Dr. Swaid performed my discectomy back surgery after making sure all other treatments were exhausted. He recommended a myleogram to pinpoint exactly where the problem was. I received the results the next morning and was scheduled for surgery the next week, as they were concerned about the nerves being possibly damaged due to the impinging disc. I can't fault the man for not really having a great personal bedside manner as he is extremely busy, he did what he does best. You just have to be ready with your questions when he walks in! I highly recommend him to anyone who has to have anything done that deals with nerves.
Waited 2 weeks for an appointment. Ok! He's good so I'll wait. Saw me for 5 minutes and left room while I was still talking to him. Wanted me to have a myleogram and I waited for 5 days to hear when. Called office and was told they had all informations and approval from insurance and they would secdeule it the next day and call me. Four days later I called back and was told I had to be patient. Next day recieved call to schedule the myleogram. I already called another nuerosurgeon who saw me the next day, evaluated me, told me he did not need a myloegram. I called a cancel the test and six weeks later I still have not recieved a follow up call from Swaid's office to even inquire why I canceled the test. He may be good but for he or his office dropped the ball. I had to have emergency surgery the week after seeing my new doctor. Now recovering. It is simple- I was not important enough for Dr. Swaid. Thank God for Drs. O'Malley and Francavilla in Alabaster. They thought I was.
