Angie Atchison - Trauma Patient Testimonial


"Just recently had the Forma procedure done on my face and OMG! I'm hooked! It was so incredibly relaxing and almost caught myself falling asleep a few times! I saw improvement in some of the lines in my face after just one treatment, I cannot wait to go back for more! Kelsey and her aesthetics team at AST are amazing and make you feel so comfortable! Cannot recommend enough!"

"I was looking for new primary care and called AST yesterday, after hearing good things about them, to set up an appointment in the Hoyleton office. My appointment was yesterday!! It was great! Both Macee and her nurse took the time to get to know me and the issues I have. Thorough and knowledgeable and just an overall good experience! I’m glad I made that call and I’m sure I won’t dread future appointments like I used to ! I highly recommend them!"

"She is my provider and I LOVE her and her staff!! Great group of women" 

"She is amazing! 10/10 recommend" 

"What an amazing facilities they have. I have found my new primary care practice. I was promptly taken care of with an ongoing issue that was so uncomfortable. Also I want to give a shoutout to Macey Gettinger, as well as Brittany for the prompt and friendly and professional service." 

"I went to Julie Adkins a few times after Dr. Thompson left.. When she passed I decided I would see Emily Roach, I'm so happy I did.. She is a caring person and made me feel very comfortable.. :) 

"Let me just say that all the staff there are so amazing! They treat you like family and take care of you with so much compassion" 

"Macee and Bailey do a fantastic job! Everything is professional, friendly, clean, and the music in the waiting room isn't half bad either! Very thankful for this clinic opening up in Hoyleton and I highly recommend it to anyone in the area for primary care."

"Emily is exceptional. Her years of experience as an ICU nurse is very evident with her approach to care. She goes above and beyond as a provider and I'm so thankful to have found someone willing to get to the bottom of problems! I no longer dread seeing my PCP! I'm happy to go! 10/10 recommend!"

"The staff were all very friendly. Dr. Swayze was extremely personable, took the time to get to know me and my health history, didn't just take my vitals and schedule me for labs. It's so comforting to have someone who treats me like a person, not a patient transaction."

"AST provides an exceptional example of how healthcare should be provided.
The facility is a clean and inviting environment, the staff is always friendly, and the service Macey provides is very genuine and un-rushed. 
It's easy to claim to be a 'patient first' facility, but to create a comfortable environment to accomodate that comfornt to your patients is what sets Macey and her staff apart from others."

"AST Primary Care has been great about working around my schedule. Excellent Service and Excellent Care."

"Wonderful place to go when you are sick, got me in and out fast. Shannon and Michelle are fabulous there. Please consider them for a primary care provider, they do excellent work."

"Bob has been a friend of mine for about 20 years. We worked together as paramedics. He is now my primary provider and has been for several years now. He takes great care of me. Keeps me in line and is straight forward and even sometimes blunt. But he is right. It’s not just about me. I couldn’t imagine a better provider."

"I am so glad I switched!! Bob is awesome. Really listens to his patients, compassionate, and is very thorough with his care. I’ve never had a dr do a absolute complete work up till now. I will follow for sure"

"I’ve been going for the past 2 months. The ladies in the office have been great. Bob has been very helpful and I’ve enjoyed speaking with him."

"The best experience my family has ever had with healthcare. Bob Swayze Is phenomenal...they all are. Thank you for such a GREAT visit for my daughter and I."

"I have been a patient with Bob Swayze for a number of years. Very pleased to see that he joined the AST group. I also used AST for my colonoscopy this year. The staff was very efficient at arranging all the plans. Dr Liyanage explained everything and was a skilled surgeon. I would highly recommend AST and very pleased with using them for my medical care."

"Great new business in the Marion area! Great team of drs that care! Also I’m looking forward to my Botox! 😊"

My husband and I found AST Primary Care to be a breath of fresh air! Robert Swayze, FNP/BC took his time to hear our health background and review our medical records. We both feel comfortable under his care, and appreciate his careful consideration on prescribing medicine, ordering tests/screenings, and referrals. His staff is great too... all very professional. We highly recommend this healthcare provider. 

My husband used a local family doctor for years, had extreme blood pressure issues at 25 that we could not get under control. So awful you could see it on his skin, how much he sweat and his attitute. When talking to his life long family doctor about the issues he was having he responded with "you are tough, you'll get over it". We left and never went back. That's when AST walked into our lives and after one visit he was advised to start a small blood pressure medicine and start anxiety. After a month or so of figuring out a good dosage for each, you wouldn't even consider that to be the same man that walked into the doctors office. He is happy and healthy and living an over all better life. We are so thankful for AST and caring staff. 

As a new patient at a ST were so impressed on how caring and thorough experience was with Dr. Bob. First thing that was great is how Bob talked with you and the questions he asked about your past and present conditions. He tells you what type of doctor he is, not real big on prescriptions or medication‘s, he’d rather treat you in other ways. Then he explains the other ways to improve your health through vitamins and exercise. Both her visits were a great experience and informative and we left confident about our health and our future care

Everyone was extremely welcoming and friendly!!
