Dr Swonke is a very good dentist. 8/24/2017

I have been going to Dr Swonke for over 2 years. He is one of the most professional, competent, efficient Dentist I have been to. His office is state of the art and his staff is curtious and top notch. more

SAVE YOURSELF 7/21/2015

This doctor is absolutely the worst. He is rude, condescending, and downright nasty. He will try to find a way to get money out of your pocket regardless of your insurance. FIND SOMEONE ELSE, SOMEONE HUMAN. I wish I could give him zero stars. more

Awful dentist 6/27/2014

Dr. Swanke is so inpatient. He ignored all of my complaints and completely blew me off. I chose him because of his reviews on the demand force website. Well it turns out they pay for that website- that's how they have to many reviews and mostly positive ones. It is very biased. I was in pain throughout my entire treatment with Dr. Swanke. Instead of believing me- he just kept on working. I've since found a phenomenal dentist who makes me completely pain free and comfortable. more

Jerk 2/25/2014

Would never go to this Dr. EVER again! He is totally out for himself- it's all about the money. Worst experience ever! Would give zero star if I could more

Nerve damage 9/23/2013

I have spent the last three months spending thousands of dollars at dentists, dental specialists, and MDs. I had a filling from Dr. Swanke 4 months ago and have been experiencing severe nerve pain, constant jaw pain and now severe headaches. I have gone to Dr. Swanke to explain my symptoms but have been ignored by him. Finally, a neurologist diagnosed me with nerve damage that may be permanent. I now have to take anti-seizure medications all because of a simple filling. I will never set foot in Dr. Swanke's office again. more

Not a good family dentist when involving kids and teens 10/20/2012

The Dentist and assistance do not have patience with children when performing dental work. more

Absolutely rude! 10/8/2012

If i didn't have to give a star, I wouldn't. The only good thing about my visit to this dentist was that his staff was very friendly. Upon meeting Dr. Swonke--no smile, curt, extremely rude, acted like he didn't want to deal with me or be there. I had a root canal problem and he treated me like this was all my fault. Told me I would be needing 3 fillings, when my now current new doctor told me I only need one. This dentist sucked! more

misleading cumstomer 6/28/2012

Dishonest practice! I received a completely unexpected bill after insurance's coverage. He is not in my insurance network but didn't tell me about that. I was misled by the high insurance payment estimate they gave me, and received treatments that were not necessary at all! more

Well known phenomenal dentist 6/5/2012

We have had Dr. Swonke for over 20 years. The person who was complaining for bein late didn't do her research! He had an office in the med center for years, added one in Sugar Land for the past 10 years or so but recently sold that practice and moved his med center practice. When updating info on the web, it is almost impossible to get all the info corrected from the various web browsers at once. That woman was lazy and chose to go with the first info she got which was incorrect. By my tally, she still would have barely made it o time. I drive into the med center frequently. 15 minutes is barely enough time to park and get up to the correct floor. Dr. Swonke is the most compassionate and well informed dentist out there. He has excellent reviews, an awesome and hospitable staff as well as a top notch education with regards to dentistry. He is more than qualified and has practiced for many years working with other dentists from the area. I plan to move my business to his med center business since I am currently in Sugar Land and must transfer my records there. I highly recommend this dentist. He is a friend and fellow parishioner as well! more

Love this man 5/29/2012

I dont know why you naysayers had a problem, but that's all it was. I have seen Dr Tom Swonke since 1987 & he is the best of the best!!! I even traveled frm Austin to Houston bcause i couldnt find someone like him. He is caring & compassionate & has even taken care of my special needs child. Can't get any better than that. Kudos to Yolanda his assistant also. Luv you Dr. Tom!!!!!! :) more

He will claim you owe more money 3/16/2012

Expect to receive bills for charges above what you and your insurance have already paid and what was stated on the invoice given to you in the office. more

All you people are crazy 7/18/2011

I have been going to Dr. Swonkee for almost 20 years. He has worked wonders on pain issues i have been having with my jaw when every other doctor couldnt do anything. I wouldn't recommend anyone else. more

Never Again, Don't Do It... 5/6/2011

Any time I visit a physician for the first time I and hopefully optimistic but this experience was terrible, with a capital T. I went to the Medical Center office address that was online only to find out the office was moved 5 blocks away and the information had not been updated. After walking 5 blocks, in the Houston heat, to the new building I finally arrived to my appointment about 15 minutes late. The receptionist gave me the new patient paperwork and after completing it I was told that they would not be able to take me today because "I was 45 minutes late".. I informed her that the only reason I was late was because the address had not been updated and I had to walk 5 blocks.. Then I was told I could wait behind 3 patients, which tells me they were overbooked anyway, or reschedule. No offer to work me in, nothing. Needless to say I didn't reschedule. If the address had been correct I would have been early for my appointment but that seemed irrelevant to them. When I called the office (current location) after arriving at the original location the receptionist could have told me then that if I was late they would not have been able to take me and saved me a walk totaling 10 city blocks. I ended up paying $5 for parking, walking 10 blocks, wasting an hour and a half of my valuable time, and not getting my dental exam. If I could give them zero stars I would. more

Perfect for a dentist 3/2/2011

Let me preface this by saying that I HATE GOING TO THE DENTIST. I found Dr. Swonke to be very thourough and respective of my concerns. I will admit that he is the most outgoing person but I'm not there to make a friend....I want a competant dentist that will do a great job with my teeth which is exactly what he does. As far as the receptionist, you must have caught them at a bad time because she has been nothing but nice to me for the past 3 years! more

Not a good dentist 2/11/2011

Worst experience ever. Avoid if at all possible. Swonke is a smug little man who obvisouly has a little man complex. He treats his customers like he is there boss or something. Very rude. If you want a good, friendly dentist...keep looking more

Insurance and Billing 12/17/2010

Actually, my service was fine when I had to get a cleaning, crown, etc. Initially I was told that I only had to pay a certain amount and my insurance (United) would take care of the rest. However, I received a few bills many months later too. I have just been ignoring them because I thought that it was a mistake and that the Dr. Swonke and associates have been sending them to me in error. I have not received anything from them in a couple months so I just assumed that it all got worked out. more

Undeniably not the best dentist in town... 12/13/2010

I agree with all the previous reviewers. The receptionist is rude, and the dentists lack personal and professional skills. I went there for a routine cleaning and they told me I required more extensive work. After spending almost $1,000 in services, I am now worst that before I went there. Avoid at all cost. Although, I do have to say, the cleaning staff is nice. more

Bittersweet 6/23/2010

While the dental service itself was good, I received a completely unexpected bill after insurance and paying my deductible for x-rays in excess of what insurance covered. Also the "second cleaning" (also denied by insurance) could easily have taken place during the time I spent waiting and/or while uncovered x-rays were being taken. Overall I am left with distaste and won't be going back. more

rude receptionist and had to pay extra for service 5/20/2010

The actual dental work went fine but it was a nightmare to deal with afterwards. I was told that my insurance covered everything except for the deductible. However, I ended up getting a $400+ bill! My insurance company said the dentist didn't file some of the work properly. Swonke said the insurance wouldn't take it. Long story short, I was given a letter by Swonke that if I didn't pay they would forward it to a collection agency. So I'm forking over my cash Swonke, but you can forget ever getting a referral from me. Hope the rest of you find another dentist since there are better ones out there. more

Love this office!!! 3/23/2010

Dr. Swonke is exceptional, and we love all the staff - they are like family now. Dr. Swonke is very reserved, serious, and quiet at first, but once you get to know him better he is very caring and deliberate. We lived overseas for two years and would schedule dentist visits into our US vacations because we love his office so much!!! The staff has always been helpful and friendly, and everyone has been great at explaining things and answering questions. Dr. Swonke can be very quiet, so all you have to do is ask questions and be nice to get the answers you're looking for! more
