Always fits patients with a need into his schedule. Sometimes this means he runs late, but it's worth it as each patient gets the necessary time and attention. He also is fabulous as a PCP in terms of looking at specialists info, explaining results in context of the "big picture".

Dr. Westerling is a decent doctor but the office staff is absolutely terrible. They are rude and take forever to get back to you about any questions. They are the reason why I stopped going to Dr. Westerling.

Dr. Westerling was my childhood dr. I came to see him for something in my 20's, that is still unresolved. He asked if I had insurance, I told him no. So he said he would only do a few tests. Weeks later with no results, I received a bill for $2,700. I had to request the results, and called may times to talk with him to discuss those results, and he never called back or showed any concern whatsoever for my well being. There was so follow up, no explaination, no referrel, and no suggestions.

Dr. Westerling was my childhood doctor. I always found him a bit cold/creepy. When I went to college it touched off a major period of mismanagement of care that majorly derailed my life for the next several years including having to drop out of school due to health. All of my supposed problems were due to overprescription of medications that his office was pushing at the time, including being put on counter-indicated drugs simultaneously. Then i was pulled off everything cold turkey.
