Dr West was very professional and communicated our options clearly. I am blind so it is important the Dr takes the extra steps necessary to communicate and he did. Surgery went smoothly. Couldn't be happier.

Had one appointment with him as he was filling in for my urologist who was on vacation. He said he had read my whole chart and knew all my med history. He told me that my biopsy results were negative and that I did not have cancer. This was wrong, since I was told by my regular urologist, (before he went on vacation) the results were positive for cancer. Turns out West didn't know much of anything about my med history. He apologized when I told him he was wrong about my biopsy results.
