He rarely looks at me or my pointing to problem pain areas. He is intent on using the computer. He prefers to refer me to someone else - pass the buck quickly. This is my 3rd time to see him over a 2-year period and I get the same non-treatment.

Dr Westwick is the people's Doctor. meaning: He is more than a Doctor He genuinely cares about people. He takes his time with each of his patients, he is thorough in his examinations & he explains everything where his patients understand everything that is going on with them and He doesn't do it in a condescending way. He really makes you know that he cares for you. And he also calls you when & if you need him on the telephone. Dr. Westwick is Marvelous. He's the people's Doctor!!
