    Experienced on Apr 18, 2019

    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.

    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. [...]

    Dr. West is exceptionally personable and confident in his decisions. Has a way of bringing optimism in front of worry.

    Experienced on Jul 18, 2018

    Very knowledgeable and really wants to fix the underlying issues.

    Dr. West is a very kind, caring surgeon. Sometimes appts. feel rushed - but he always answers my questions.

    Experienced on Jun 07, 2018

    There wasn't an immediate plan to follow up w/healing the injury - one goes home w/o any plan until to see more results. Most likely, one will look for another provider having an injury that's not resolved.

    Experienced on Feb 19, 2018

    He seems great. Care very drawn out. I am so frustrated trying to get answers. It will be months at this rate [...].

    Experienced on Feb 15, 2018

    Seems knowledgeable & wanted to rule out any other possibilities first.
