Ratings for Dr. Mark W. Swaim
This is the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. Staff was very unfriendly as well as doctor. He was rude, aloof and downright mean. Wait time was usually 5-6 hours after appointment time. He would come to the hospital for his rounds around 1:00 A.M. He seemed to hate questions. Most hateful doctor I have ever had. Would never recommend!!!
He is a very rude, uncaring person with little regard for his patient's feelings. No reason to wait 8-10 hrs. to see him, it is rude and demeaning to patients. Recommend anyone travel outside of Jackson to receive decent health care from a reputable Dr.
Dr. Swaim was difficult to access & approach concerning my mother's health and prognosis. He did discover her disease, but failed to communicate effectively to her and family. My time trying to find out information from Dr. Swaim was a nightmare when my mother was in the hospital. He was angry and aloof over the phone and said if I wanted to talk I could come to his office. I believe he is a smart man, but that one good feature is obscured due to his rudeness and what appeared to be complete disregard for his patient and her family. My mother's death was hard enough to endure without the diffulty and frustration we went through trying to communicate and deal with Dr. Swaim. I have left out many details here, but I would never, never recommend Dr. Swaim.
Dr. Swaim is a rude and Cranky man. Your wait time can excede 10 hours. However he is the guru of hep. C He and Sandy have what it takes to help anyone seeking help With Hep.C My hat goes off to Sandy for her willingness to Treat people the way they want to be treated. She makes up where Swaim needs improvement.
Dr. Swaim has saved my life. He was very caring during each visit, taking the time to ensure that the medications I was taking weren't affecting me in all areas. He is an excellent physician who knows his stuff. He is very thorough without putting patients through unnecessary tests.
HAD A 0930 APPT. FINALLY CALLED BACK -- SWAIM WENT TO LUNCH -- GONE FOR > 1 HR --- VERY KIND AND SOFT SPOKEN BUT WAS EVASIVE IN ANSWERING QUESTIONS ABOUT PLANNED PROCEDURE -- THAT I LATER LEARNED WAS NOT NECESSARY PROCEDURE --- DURING BIOPSY -- HE PREPPED ME WHILE ARGUING ON THE PHONE ABOUT A MISSED PAGER CALL. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.
Seems to know what's going on. Main comment is that appears he needs to work on politeness. Keeping one waiting also, we were there over 6 hours before seeing him. Do realize that he had emergency to arise but seems that from conversation this happens quite often. Needs to try to figure away to keep people from waiting so long especially if that have other appointments on the same day.
