She delivered my first baby, my son! And let me tell you how wondefull she is! She rushed down to make it so the on call doctor wasn't the one to deliver me. She had wet hair when she got there, amd she was just so awesome. After I had him, she came to check on me the next day, I believe that's normsl, but she asked to see my son and we talked for a minute. Now she gets to deliver my daughter! !

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.
