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.

Provider was great. Wished we were given advanced notice that my child was going to have to change into a gown at the visit. It made her uncomfortable. Luckily Svendsen said she did not have to go through that exam and my child was able to change.

I absolutely love Dr. Svendson. She is the best doctor I could ask for. My daughter is very shy and she feels so comfortable with Dr. Svendson. Some doctors you can tell just want to get through their list of patients, but this is never the case with this doctor. She genuinely cares about her patients and is absolutely awesome. Thank you!!

I got lucky when I randomly picked Dr. Svendsen 4 years ago as the primary provider for my children. Since the very beginning she has been an excellent doctor and I trust her very much. She listens very well and doesn\'t dismiss any kind of concern I have. We are blessed to have her.
