Dr Westwick Is at the top of our list of excellent physicians whom we have had through our lifetime. He has been PCP for myself and my spouse since 2008. We have many adverse health changes lately, and Dr Westwick has responded quickly and expertly to our needs. We trust him and seek his advice when we are faced with medical uncertainty. Furthermore, through his careful testing and analyses, he found my spouse's cancer five yrs before the cancer became active. Dr Westwick Is intuitive, pleasant, and very kind; yet, he is science based. His attitude and demeanor reflect an openness to a collaborative approach with my spouse and myself. We are very glad that he is with Scott & White and thankful that we "found" him 14 yrs ago. He's the best.
