Dr. Swanson, a 78 year old medical doctor from Iowa, practices for free. He simply has a donation box in his lobby. At a time when the economy is entering into a depression and many people cannot afford healthcare, his average donation is $10 and he sees 150 patients a week. Dr. Swanson has the right perspective on life and his medical practice.
“The fun of life is giving, and most people miss the fun of life,” Swanson said. “Money is the least important thing. If people would forget about money, and provide service, it would be a wonderful world.”
Chiropractors need to learn a lesson from this humble man and be willing to provide care to everyone who needs it, regardless of their ability to pay.
