I was able to get right in for an emergent medical condition that no other office would even call me back for. He spent a lot of time with me explaining all options and care. He made me feel comfortable and was very knowledgeable about my condition. He has been very easy to talk to and when I see him for follow-ups he treats me with kindness. His daughter who also works in the office as been extremely nice to work with. His staff has always been polite and prompt.

Dr. West is a kind, gentle and caring physician. I suffered a bad fall and broke my nose in October at the age of 57. I had taken my daughter to him for a tonsillectomy when she was 5 or 6, and at that time I recognized his innate compassion and desire to help people. I referred myself to Dr. West, remembering that kindness. He performed surgery and repaired my nasal bone and a contusion in my septum. He has blessed me twice. I highly recommend Dr. West to anyone in need of an excellent ENT!

He isn't amazing but he isn't horrible. He explains things to you when you ask, but his visits are quick and his staff is nice in person, but horrible to get ahold of over the phone.
The front office is very rude! The lady that handles insurance hung up on me. I would not recommend this office to anyone.
