He is easy to talk with and shows interest in your well-being not just another check in the box type Dr. I look forward to our conversations and I feel more at ease than I have with another counselor I have seen in the past.

Dr. Westerlund was very patient and kind. He took time to explain my options and did not pressure me to make a quick decision. He described the surgery in detail so I would know what to expect and went over my MRI and x-rays thoroughly. I highly recommend!
