Brian Michael Swan, MD, Internal & Family Medicine with Prospice Physical Medicine Centers

Get to know Internal & Family Medicine Dr. Brian Michael Swan, who serves the population of California.

Dr. Brian Michael Swan has been in practice for more than 10 years, and in that time has become renowned as one of California’s foremost physicians. His career in medicine began in 2000, when he graduated with the highest of honors from the University of Arizona, College of Medicine. Dr. Swan subsequently went on to receive his formal medical training as a resident physician at several of the top medical centers in the United States, including The University of San Francisco Medical Center, San Francisco General Hospital, and Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It is the diversity  of Dr. Swan’s medical training that has truly set him apart from his peers, as his medical expertise extends across multiple medical fields, including the medical specialities of dermatology, internal medicine, and family medicine. As described by Dr. Swan, “ When I began my formal training following medical school, I focused on achieving one goal: to build the most extensive foundation of medical knowledge and skill possible, in order to treat the WHOLE patient, as opposed to focusing only on a single body system or organ.”

As a Board Certified specialist, Dr. Swan treats a wide range of conditions for patients of all ages. These include, just to name a few: asthma, diabetes, heart conditions (such as high blood pressure, arrhythmias, heart failure), arthritic conditions, work injuries, and sport based injuries. He has worked for several years as a Hospitalist physician, as well as an Intensive/Critical Care physician, caring for the extremely ill within the hospital’s intensive care units.  Dr. Swan is also renowned as a specialist in dermatology, providing expert treatment for a variety of skin conditions.

As the President of Prospice Physical Medicine Centers, Dr. Swan offers a unique approach to patient care, combining the benefits of “the allopathic”, or traditional medical training he received during his formal medical training here in the United States, and integrating the benefits of various forms of “holistic” medical solution to his patients, incorporating chiropractic manipulation and acupuncture alongside contemporary medicine. He believes that the secret of his success is that he takes time to listen to his patients, rather than simply hearing them.

Internal Medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Internists are skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes. Internists care for hospitalized and ambulatory patients and may play a major role in teaching and research.
