Ratings for Dr. Paul Swingle
This is my second round with Dr. Swingle’s office. I am so excited to see the results this time as the first round cured my daughters ADD/ Aspbergers, and my social anxiety. My stress level dropoed considerably and brought me and my daughter out of isolation. I went from fear of everything to leadership positions. I can’t say enough about this office and the workbthey do there. I would never go anywhere else. I trust them with my brain and this therapy. As far as the negative comments here , it’s just like everything else in life you can stay stuck and refuse to be healed, you are the master over your body and mind. You have to be willing for it to work. Some people are just ao attached to being right about their victimhood. If you really want to be healed you have to complete the process, it does not happen over night. Thank You for giving me my life back! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Swingle twice, not as in two visits - two rounds of treatment. I can't recall how many times I came in nor how many times I had treatments, however, the result has been nothing short of a miracle in my life. I am sure Dr. Swingle is unaware of how I feel, but I continue to talk about him and the effect he and his treatment has had on my life and my family. I can not say enough about him. I do recall wondering what all the treatments were for and how this could possibly help me - but I continued and I have to tell you that the effects have been long lasting and amazing.
I note a pattern to the reviews. I've only begun seeing Dr Swingle so I am not going to comment on my treatment. But I note that everyone who had their child treated gave very positive rating, most of those who had kept up their treatments to the end gave positive reviews, while most of those who quit after a few treatments gave poor reviews. Overall this indicates Swingle's treatments are robust. So it makes sense that children's growing brain will be much more responsive to treatment. Older patients should lesson their expectation in proportion to their ages and expect longer treatment periods, Negative reviews may be more reflective of the mindset of patients who have not been patient enough to persist. Then again, people differ and some may not respond to the treatments.
Avoid wasting your time and money going to this clinic, after 5 treatments, they were not able to answer my simple question from day one. Just pushing to continue and doing the nonsense treatments. The Technicians have unprofessional and have no idea what is going on and just recording same data over and over.
I went to the clinic because l've been experiencing multiple symptoms, e.g. constant fatigue, lack of sleep and focus, muscles strain...etc. The initial consultation costs $200. After I finished the brain wave scan, l met with a doctor (not Swingle). She explained the report very carefully and in great details. What she failed (or had no idea how) to do was confirming or eliminating any diagnosis! At one point I shared what l believe might be the problem. She kinda agreed with whatever l said, but again, without any confirmation. Finally, she recommended 20 sessions minimum, because "biofeedback could be good for anybody"! I was amazed that l need that many sessions even though my brain is way above "very good" in terms of functionality according to the report. It seems they want to get the money whether or not it's needed and in absence of any diagnosis. Not going back there. I wasn't impressed of how old the equipment are!
I believe neurotherapy overall has fantastic potential, and the Swingle Clinic has something to offer some people. As well, I believe that they are doing valuable research in this field. I wish I could say I found the Swingle Clinic helped me or was truly worth the fees they are charging. It wasn’t, but I’m glad to read that that their therapy seems to help some others. I had spent 100s of dollars and many hours (and being told I needed to come in for another round of approx. 12 sessions, even though the original quote was for approx. only 8-10 sessions), until I finally ‘got it’ that there were no significant measurable results and I didn’t have the money to waste on this experiment. Also, I did not like how there was no professional follow-up by email or phone to see how I—as a client—was doing after nearly a year of not returning to continue the treatments. While I’ve no doubt the clinicians are very busy, that personal touch (if it’s genuinely caring) does make a difference.

We are so grateful for Dr. Swingle and his staff! Our experience has been nothing but positive. The front desk staff is very friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. The technicians are efficient and make you feel at ease. Dr. Swingle and Dr. Doleschneider show great compassion while offering concise information and thought out direction.
I would like to invite Dr. Swingle's staff to list the places that show Dr. Swingle and his methods to be scientifically proven to be effective. None of the articles written by him are published. Thank you.

Hello and thank you for your valid comment. To access the scientific information on the field of Neurotherapy we suggest that you go to the ISNR website (www.isnr.org) and access the bibliography prepared by Dr. Hammond. This is a very useful resource, organized by diagnostic category. Alternatively, you can access the National Institutes of Health website and search Neurofeedback, EEG Biofeedback, and Neurotherapy which will access over 1000 references. Dr. Swingle’s particular Neurotherapy methods can be studied by accessing his publications, but most efficiently from his books “Biofeedback for the Brain” Rutgers University Press (available online at http://www.soundhealthproducts.com/collections/books); and soon to be published (Spring 2015) “When the ADHD Diagnosis is Wrong…”, Praeger Press; and “Adding Neurotherapy to Your Practice”. The articles you refer to are those made available in our waiting room and on our website for clients. They are for client information and are not reprints of Dr. Swingle’s scientific publications which, again, can be accessed as described above. Thank you for pointing out that our waiting room/website informational articles may need to be augmented with directions for accessing the scientific articles.

My significant other had a traumatic brain injury, after a MVA, where her chev Silverado was thrown forty feet and turned 180 degrees. Her head took out the window. She saw dr. Swingle, and was treated by Michael Mariano to manage her tech appointments. She had thirty treatments, and because we travelled for this care it was over 11 thousand dollars out of pocket. ICBC, does not pay for this treatment. The neurologists seem frightened by it. Non-medical management. The lawyers also try to discredit Dr. Swingle. but.. what price is your health. I got my wife back. She was literally stunned, and for the better part of a year was non-functioning. Thank-you...Dr. Swingle. It would be nice to have the case references where you appeared in court. I am sure you did as an expert witness, but apparently they can't find you. in any event. You would take your significant other on a vacation for this money. So, go next year. Get healthy!
