Dr. Swofford was also my mom and dad's care provider. he cared for them with care and concern my dad had colon cancer, so Dr. Swofford makes sure to follow up on my appts for colonoscopies. my mom passed at the age of 94 from Alzheimer's. he made sure to keep regular appts with her to monitor her health.
