I would rate my entire experience of being treated at Swedish for cancer to be absolutely outstanding. I had no idea of what high quality health care could be like until attending Swedish, now I am spoiled to the core.

provider gave me incorrect information that caused significant stress for my family and me. He told us the scope exam looked like the cancer was still there. He went on to predict that the PET and CT scans would "light up" and without surgery I could expect to live months and not years.The scans were completed the next day and Dr [...] provided us with results that there was no cancer in my throat or anywhere else in my body.
