I have had three interactions with Dr. Westphal and can not say enough good about him. He just repaired a hernia for me and I never felt more at ease.

My initial visit was a consultation/exam to discuss problems I was experiencing from varicose veins. Dr. Westphal ordered an ultrasound of my leg veins. At my second appointment, I learned I had venous insufficiency in my left leg. He discussed options to correct the problem, and eventually I had a VenaSeal procedure. It has been over a month, and I am very satisfied with the results. Dr. Westphal is caring, knowledgeable, experienced, and thorough.

I found dr. Westphal to be a very pleasant person and a very knowledgeable doctor. He performed in angioplasty and inserted a stent it took me an hour and a half and I experienced no pain or discomfort. I had a four-hour stay at the hospital to make sure there are no bleeding issues and then went home.. His procedure greatly increase the blood pressure and slow to my foot and lower leg. I had a follow-up where he explained everything in great detail and he answered any all of my questions.

Dr. Westphal had never heard of the type of vasculitis I appear to have. He did not even look at the peer-reviewed articles I brought, or my meticulous written history of vascular and autoimmune issues. He actually said that figuring out my vascular issues was "above his pay grade" Total waste of time.

on 02-23-2016 I had a follow up for a stent he put in the month before. He was checking for a pulse in my groin to the right leg when he hurt me by pushing down and the pain has not gone away as of today. I don't know what happened but I would like it fixed. Walter Zimmerman
