    I saw him when he was in his residency at UCSF when I was at my worst! My prognosis was not good. As a 19 year old, Hearing that I'd be in a wheelchair by the time I was 30 was terrifying if something wasn't done. He basically nursed me back to health! He knew the right medication I needed, He explains EVERYTHING thoroughly, he will draw you diagrams to help you understand what is going on, and he truly wants whats best for you! To top i off, he's extremely personable! FANTASTIC DOCTOR!!!

    Dr. West explains everything so you can understand what is happening to you. He is very kind and in my opinion an excellent doctor. He spends a lot of time with you and wants to make sure you understand everything he is telling you. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
