My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Sitting face-to-face with someone, listening to what really matters to them, I am wondering, “What has this person been through, what are they feeling right now, what can improve their quality of life right now, and how can they be prepared if things go very wrong in the future?” Sitting face-to-face with someone is a beautiful thing. The Privilege of being part of those moments is all the motivation I need to do the very best I can, every time. It is an honor to be part of this great profession. My patients have taught me well, and I pass it on.

I could not ask for a better Dr. He listens and has diagnosed some things I hadn't noticed.
I feel like I have excellent care and continue to make sure he has received all test results I have had.
Thank you Dr. Swanson!

My family and I have been blessed to be under Dr. Swanson's care for the past 30 plus years. I know God guided me to his name in the phone book when I was first looking for a doctor!

The resources& support Dr. Swanson has provided for us have been a godsend. His health coach, Lois Pratt, has turned my life around and helped me become healthier & have less pain through exercise & better eating habits.

from Morris in CO February 16, 2014 for Douglas G. Swanson, MD

Dr. Swanson has inspired me to think differently about my health. I have lost 20 pounds, eat more healthy foods, and exercise more. The personalized approach and attention to detail are most impressive.

from Beryl in CO February 10, 2014 for Douglas G. Swanson, MD

Dr. Douglas Swanson is an excellent Doctor. Good about giving fast appointments when needed. Took appointments on time, no long waits.

Have felt like he did not ignore signs for heart problems in women. Very pleased with his caring and taking… See more

from Martha in CO February 7, 2014 for Douglas G. Swanson, MD

Dr. Douglas G. Swanson has been our PCP for about 22 years. He has always been responsive, caring and willing to pay attention to details which later prove to be important. Since my husband and I are older and have several health issues, we chose to remain with Dr. Swanson when he became a MDVIP affiliate last year. This has allowed him time and resources more closely to monitor our health. We… See more

from Marjie in CO February 7, 2014 for Douglas G. Swanson, MD

I want to thank Dr. Swanson for his excellent care for years. He took very good care of my husband Roland Mays as he suffered with COPD and other complications. Dr. Swanson has also taken good care of my (Marjie Mays) regular medical checkups. May God be with and bless Dr. Swanson as he continues to see and care for his patients.
