Dr. Charles D. Swerdlow's Ratings
Dr. Swerdlow is a brilliant and compassionate physician and surgeon. He saved my husband's life when he was in ICU going into shock at a hospital across town 11 years ago. His subsequent surgeries and compassionate care changed the course of my husband's disease and his quality of life. We moved to another state last year, and with Dr. Swerdlow's gentle assistance, we are slowly transitioning our care to a doctor he knows and respects. We have tremendous faith in Dr. Swerdlow and his excellent team of professionals. His entire team over the years has been and continues to be top notch. I would refer anyone in need of excellent professional care to him.
I had a consultation with this Dr. today. He kept me waiting for 90 minutes. His nurse and staff repeatedly made excuses for him. There is no excuse to keep someone waiting for 90 minutes without explanation. I had to leave before seeing the Dr. His staff was very "apologetic". Unfortunately, apologies are useless when you spend 4 1/2 hours total with drive time waiting for a Dr. and never actually get to see him. There is no excuse for this.
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.
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.
Dr. Swerdlow is the best. The Medrontics cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implanted by Dr. Swerdlow three years ago saved my husband's life. We are so very grateful that he is Dr. Swerdlow's patient.
