Ratings for Dr. Deanna Swinamer
Dr Swinamer took me on as a patient when I was without a primary care physician after my doctor of many years retired, and his replacement had also left (having been unable to diagnose my disease for a year). Within a week I had been diagnosed by Dr Swinamer, and beginning effective treatment. I find her empathetic and respectful of my opinions, which are sometimes not what she would like to hear! Love her!
Dr. Swinamer is an amazing physician. When she asks how you are doing, she genuinely means it. She is the true definition of a family physician-all of my family see her. She even asks about them but will still keep things professional and confidential. She has called me personally to tell me something instead of having her staff call to book an appointment to go back to see her. She trusts my medical judgements (not a medical professional) and I obviously trust hers. Love her to pieces!
Dr. Swinamer is an amazing family doctor and I feel so lucky to have her. She is completely thorough, compassionate, understanding and supportive. I have really needed her in the past six months and she has been nothing but attentive, supportive, and kind. She is a smart, strong woman who I completely trust my healthcare with. She even agreed to take my mother on as a patient when I asked because I was concerned about some health issues she was having. Once when I was having major sinus issues she managed to get me in to see a specialist THAT DAY. Unheard of. Her staff have also helped me to get in in a rush when I really had a rebound of symptoms. I know how lucky I am. I vote her the best of the best.
Dr Swinamer is amazing. I started going to her 3 years ago to join my hubby to make her our family dr since we're expecting. She's so real, I love it. She has great bedside manner, and knows her stuff - and will refer you elsewhere if need be! She even takes a few minutes at the end to chat about just life in general. My hubby's entire family sees her. And actually, she was the dr who diagnosed his father with a fatal disease when doctor after doctor dismissed his cough for smokers cough. Unfortunately it was too late to save him, but the family holds her in a high place.
Consider yourself very very blessed if Dr.Swinamer is your GP. She agreed to take me on as a patient when my regular GP did not handle my depression/anxiety in the manner I wanted. Dr Swinamer recognized how much pain I was in and immediately took measures to make sure I was on the road to recovery. She really goes above and beyond. When your in her office, her main concern is getting you better ASAP. She even gave me her personal phone number if I ran into any problems. She's also extremely personable and gentle and takes an interest not only in your medical issues, but your personal life. She truly is one of the best. Her staff is also very friendly and helpful. Bottom line: I have the utmost confidence in Dr.Swinamer.
I have been seeing Dr. Swinamer since she moved from Calgary to Halifax (10 years?). She is the most friendly, caring, respectful, easy-going, professional,knowledgeable doctor. She takes time to know her patients and when you see her out and about in town, she always comes over and speaks to you. You can talk to her about anything. She is an excellent listener. She usually knows the answer but quickly refers to specialists when she does not. She is equally good with my baby as myself. She is very punctual but addresses concerns thoroughly. She is excellent when there is an emergency with your health-- not leaving things to the on-call Dr., but called me herself to follow through. Her receptionists are great also-- will fit you in to see her that day more often than not if there is a real concern. I feel very blessed to have her and would recommend her to anyone. The world needs more doctors like Dr. Swinamer.
