    Dr Westerman is a great doctor. His office is difficulty to deal with. They misled me about replacing my cpap machine, did not process the paperwork in a timely fashion causing me to miss my deductible and costing me $1000 out of pocket. They did not offer to rectify the situation or compensate me for my loss. They also failed to document one of my visits in their system which cost me an additional office visit in order to get cpap supplies. Very disappointed in the office practices!
