Both my daughter's have been under the care of Dr. Svendson for years. We absolutely love her and recommend her to everyone! She is patient and I never feel rushed. She makes my daughters feel important, heard, and they never complain about having to go to the doctor. She has given them a healthy view of the doctor-patient relationship that they will take into their adulthood.

Dr. Svendsen has been my sons primary care provider literally since the day he was born and I'm so very grateful for her. She explains everything to us in detail and never makes us feel rushed through an appointment. In the weeks following my sons birth when he wasn't gaining weight she told us not worry until she worried and that she would let us know when it was time to worry. She was right and from then on I knew I trusted her with my sons care. I would (and do) recommend Dr. Svendsen to anyone.
