      Dr. Westfall is insensitive and unprofessional. I had been a patient of hers for about 7 yrs when I had a mammogram that showed a mass. a biopsy was then done. The Biopsy was done on a Wednesday. I was told I could expect to hear from Dr. Westfall's office on Friday. After 3 days of numerous calls to her office and being left on hold she came to the phone Tues morning, She told me she was with pts, That I had cancer and needed surgery. She sent me to a Gen. surgeon who sugg a double Massectomy

      Dr. Westfall is a skilled doctor; however, I would not recommend her for women seeking to have a natural birth, like I wanted. She seemed on board with this, until I arrived at my due date. Following that, I was bullied by Dr Westfall and her staff, as they pressured me and tried to scare me into interventions I didn't want. She was inflexible with considering any alternatives or induction methods except for Cytotec, which I was strongly against taking. I am no longer a patient.
