Dr. Svendsen has a wonderful attitude and provided a fun, relaxed visit. She showed genuine concern about my son. She asked all the right questions to determine his overall health at his level of understanding. She also gave him some personal anecdotes from her own life to better relate to him. This was his first time with her (the primary care physician he had all his life recently left), and he really enjoyed her.

Dr. Svendsen is such a great doctor that I hope never to have to choose another provider for my daughter. She trusts her so much to open up and speak about ANYTHING concerning her health, well being, etc.

My husband recently started working for (and now has insurance through) CHI St Joseph. However, we will continue using Dr Svendsen and BSW, because she has known and treated each of my children since birth. She is kind, genuine, and caring. She takes our concerns seriously.

Asked what questions/concerns I had about newborn's health. I felt any questions I had were answered in a way that put my (a new parent's) mind at ease. She had a great attitude and really positive energy.

Dr. Svendsen is the best doctor we have ever encountered. She has a way of talking to the kids and I love how she interacts directly with them, not just asking the parents the questions. She genuinely cares for her patients.
