Dr. Matthew Swann helped us through a very scary time. My husband was in a world of pain when we first saw Dr. Swann. We knew surgery was the last possible choice and since this would be back surgery, we worried about how things might resolve. He was kind, compassionate, and explained what was going on with my husband’s back and sciatic nerve in a way that was easy to comprehend, as stressed as we were. We have great respect for this talented doctor as well as his staff and the staff at Baptist Orthopedic Hospital in San Antonio, where the surgery was done.
