The service and personal care I received was top notch. Bruce Gallio, PA-C and the staff did everything to make me feel comfortable in a painful situation! Thank you. Read more testimonials.


I arrived at Swift Urgent Clinic and was greeted, paperwork was completed and I was taken to a room to wait. Within just a couple of minutes I was greeted by a PA and an x-ray technician. Everyone I was in contact with was friendly and professional. I will use this clinic in the future if the need arises. Read more testimonials.
