I wanted to let you know that in the new year I will be working Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursday mornings at the office, and doing cataract surgery on Tuesdays.
Dr .Kuntz will be retiring at the end of 2023, and Dr. Riggs will be retiring in the summer of 2024. We are actively recruiting physicians to join the team to provide a rounded care experience. If you have a recommendation I'd love to hear it!
In 2024 we will be transitioning to a new Electronic Medical Record system to provide patients a much better records experience overall. This is a large undertaking which will require patience from all sides. Please excuse any potential delays as we work out any kinks. We are doing our best!
Wishing you a healthy and happy 2024, and looking forward to seeing you soon!
Steven Swedberg, MD
I grew up in Spokane/Seattle and have practiced in the Puget Sound region since 1988.
My education includes the University of Washington followed by optometry education at University of California Berkeley School of Optometry. After graduation I trained in a residency program at the American Lake Veterans Administration in Tacoma. My practice has been largely with the elderly adult population but I enjoy seeing patients of all ages, including children.
As part of my professional career I have been on multiple overseas mission trips with the Lions In Sight group. These clinics help those without access to vision care or glasses obtain care.
My personal interests include bicycling, vintage bike events, knife making, gardening, and fountain pens. I have been a certified Patches Pal since 1962!
After working many years in a multi-specialty group in Seattle I am proud to join Swedberg Eye Care. The doctors and staff are experienced, professional, and caring.
I grew up in Indianapolis. I moved west in 1980 to attend Stanford University, where I majored in Biology and German Studies.
After I finished Stanford I taught Physics and German at the Branson School near San Francisco. This teaching experience was an important formative experience for me. It still impacts my daily interactions with patients, coworkers, and colleagues. When I was 26 I entered UC San Francisco Medical School.
While at UCSF I met my wife Alice and we got married during our last year of medical school. I spent a year after medical school as a research associate in the Koret Vision Center at UCSF, working closely with Roy Steinberg, MD, PhD.
In 1993, Alice and I matched together at the University of Washington Medical Center in ENT and Ophthalmology respectively. Alice also has a second degree in East Asian Medicine.
I have been practicing Ophthalmology for 20 years. Dr. Swedberg and I were in the same residency class at UW and have remained close since. After working many years in a multi-specialty group in Seattle I am happy to be joining Swedberg Eye Care!
While masks are no longer required by the Department of Health our office is encouraging all staff and patients to don a face mask due to the proximity of staff to your face during your visit.
