I went to see Dr. West about a problem I was having and was really concerned about. After examining me and ordering lab work, he took the time to explain his findings and possible diagnoses. He even gave me a prescription to help with the issue I was having. The original doctor I'd seen for my problem stated that what I was experiencing was normal without even examining me to rule out anything else. Glad I sought a second opinion.

I feel like this provider was pushing his personal preferences when I clearly didn't want it (birth control) and when I denied using another medication he sent me to see another provider.

wonderful doctor and nurse. my only complaint was waiting for so long once I'd undressed. I never mind a wait for a good doctor, just maybe don't ask us to get undressed until he or she is 100% ready because it can be a bit nerve racking to wait, naked. everything else was fantastic.
