    I waited amd waited.... then i felt he was rushed and more interested in talking to his pa than me. I felt some of my concerns were brushed over and assumed rather than being listened to by Dr West.

    Overall, I am used to Dr West's personality but feel he is always rushed. I had to ask about my xray results. They weren't offered.

    Dr. West has performed 2 surgeries on me. I trust him implicitly.

    I would not recommend ANYONE EXCEPT Dr. Hugh West of his team for hip pain in active adults!!!

    Outstanding, as always!

    I was there for 1.5 hours with a total face time with Dr. West being 5 minutes. I felt like a strange case yet a nuisance at the same time.

    It was nice that the PA & surgeon remembered me & the details about, not just my condition, but my life. They were responsive & included me in decision-making &, when they were unsure of something, called in another person.

    Great teamwork!

    It was an awesome first impression- I look forward to learning what I need to do now at my next appointment.

    I think Dr. West is one of the best doctors I've dealt with. He is personable & shows concern.

    Dr. West and [...] were very nice and willing to help me. I don't think they really know what is wrong but are trying to figure it out. [...]
