I had been misdiagnosed approximately 20 years ago with lichen sclerosis but at no point had any doctor really "laid eyes" on the actual condition. The prescribed steroid cream did alleviate the itching but through a series of unfortunate events I ended up with unacceptable itching caused my multiple issues. As a result of having to seek outside care I realized I needed an actual biopsy of the "purported" lichen. Dr. West was so kind as to agree to the biopsy- and I found him to be very amenable and agreeable. And, what was somewhat shocking to everyone, the biopsy came back negative for lichen of any kind (even though by then I was convinced it was a lichen of some sort since it was clearly visible). I'm so grateful that I was able to finally confirm that I do not have a lichen.

Dr West has been my doctor for over 17 years. He was there and delivered both of my babies; and now most recently, he was just as caring when it was time for a hysterectomy. He is kind and attentive, and I am so glad he's been my ob/gyn.

I've said this to Dr. West directly, and to his LVN that attended me on my post op visit, and I'll say it again: hands down on the service and hospitality from beginning to end! They have treated me with the utmost care, respect, and have always made me feel important and cared for. From my initial consultation, through my surgery, and my post operative visit, they always made me feel I was in good hands. I'm glad I had the privilege to meet Dr. West, aside of his professionalism, he was so down to earth and tended to my questions and needs- a Super Doctor!!!!
