This so called Dr. Is an absolute hack and should not be practicing any more. He has completely sold out to the insurance companies and does not have the people in his best interest. This hack lied to my wife and I before surgery about what he did as well as lied strait to my face after surgery. He is more concerned about what the insurance company thinks then he does about the well being of his patient's. This hack cut me open and did not fix the issue, leaving me in just about the same situat

This doctor saw me in his office for spondylosis and degeneration at L4-5 and less at L5-S1. His exam took a total of 3 minutes at most. He asked me to walk across the room, which I did. Then he asked me if I could walk on my heels. I told him I didn't think I could, but I would try. He said he had seen enough to make his decision, He never checked my reflexes. How do you check a patient without even checking reflexes. He's not even a very nice doctor.

I had the worst experience with him after he performed a knee surgery. He refused to see me after a knee surgery and left me in spite of my suffering from terrible pain. He ordered me out of the hospital. I went to the Vanderbilt by ambulance to get a large amount of fluid from my knee. I have never seen worse than this in my life

I had a great experience with Dr. West. He took care of my knee and ankle with ease. I would recommend him to my family. He took his time in the room with me and was very nice, caring and friendly. I especially like that he is not big on writing pain medicine, it is a huge problem for many people so I really thought that was great. I will be back to see him.

Prety much blamed me for the screws backing out of the small plate in my hand even though I had hardly used it,now I have to have it removed. He was short with me and I was unable to finish some things I was trying to him. He would be a better if he would fully listen to his patients and not act annoyed with patients or blame them for his honk ups.
