Dr. Swaid did not take the time to evaluate my girlfriend properly. He was in and out of the room too quick for us to even ask questions. His "nurse" Amanda is one of the most unprofessional and hateful person I have ever met. She has no clue what true nursing is all about. He was referred to me by another doctor. That doctor has since apologized to me and promised he would never refer to him again because of the so many complaints.

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 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....

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 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.
