She has even given us her personal phone number and helped several times in particular with our son who had special needs. She is matter of fact but has good bedside manner! she makes you and the kids feel comfortable- she's laid back and yet experienced.

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.

This was our first time to BS&W, Dr. Svendsen asked questions to make she understood my son's medical history and took great care of him. This was a great experience, especially compared to the other urgent care in town we have always used. The fact that we could see a pediatrician on the weekend was such a delight!

Took the time to spend with us as new parents, listened to our concerns and re-assured is that we were doing good. She also made it a point to discuss how much we were and should be sleeping, as new parents, and really took the time to care for us as a family unit.
