I recently saw Dr. Westrick for the first time and was VERY happy with how the appointment went. She listened to me perfectly and asked great questions. It seemed like she really cared about what was going on with me and wanted to help. I find some doctors to be arrogant or dismissive, but she wasn't at all. Highly recommend her!

New year new doctor. I swithced to Dr. Westrick from my old endocrinologist (emphasis on OLD)! Dr. Westrick is like a breath of fresh air! She is invested in finding the best treatment and plan FOR ME and has the passion that my old doctor was lacking.

Finding a best doctor is like choosing which apple is the best in bushel. What might look good is not really good. Case in point, I have visited Dr. Westrick several times. On paper she seems fine; in practice not so. Methodology is not consistent. What she tells you is an option is not what she will prescribe. Its like a bait and switch. Does not consider the totality of the patient's circumstances. If you are looking for a good endocrinologist keep looking, you are not going to find it here.

If you are looking for an average run-of-the-mill endocrinologist, then Dr. Westrick is your doctor. If you want someone who is "Above-Average" even borderline "Special," look elsewhere. There is nothing special or remarkable about her medicine practice. She relies on her computer screen to ask questions and flow charts to make decisions. Basically, she avoid critical thinking. I am not doubting her intelligence, she just lacks the that special something, the art to this science, to be better.

Dr. Westrick was very attentive and didn't make me feel rushed in any way. Her explanations were complete and, more importantly, easy to comprehend. She made me feel like she actually cared and truly wanted to help. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Dr Westrick had taken what worked for me for the 5 years and wanted to change course to put me in a state of extreme hypothyroidism. She based medicine on opinion rather than fact.

Very bad bedside manner and very impatient. We are dissapointed with our experience mostly because of how rude she was and how important this was to us.
