I contacted Dr. Westwick to tell him of the problem with scheduling and somehow he was able to work me in. I really like the attention Dr. Westwick has shown me and his willingness to work with my schedule.

Dr. Westwick asks the right questions, and has extremely good answers and what to do to improve my health. I recently had a colostomy at BSW, and wish the surgeonswould have done the same. Dr. Westwick took the time to explain the surgery and explain what they did.I appreciated that more than you can imagine. It is a rather difficult change for someone 86 years old. He also arranged for a Nurse to call me and help me get my life back together.
