I love this office and Dr Westgate is the best
in Hastings, MI |
I called to schedule appointment on Friday and had an appointment on Monday 8 am. Dr. Westgate was not only professional, but fun. She did a very thorough head to toe exam and immediately found 2 moles that needed to be removed. She took the time to listen to my concerns and explained the results of my exam in great detail. I am confident that she is the best dermatologist in the area!

Her exams are the most thorough that I have ever had by a dermatologist in the 25 years that I have had a dermatologist. It is worth the 1 hour drive to see her.

I am a patient of Dr. Hammond, but had my stitches removed at your office. I was very happy with the service that I received. Ron Hausserman
in Grand Rapids, MI |
Absolutely the rudest front office service I have ever experienced. This is not Dr. Westgates office you are calling but a call center in Wisconsin. They will route messages to the doctor that are never answered. Appointments are cancelled without explanation. The operator will tell you nothing is available, the next operator will find plenty of open times. They will not let you ever reach the actual office. Awful experience. Would not recommend Forefront to ANYONE!
in Allendale, MI |
I think that Dr. Westgate does a good job personally, but I have had several problems with her office staff. These are cases where I am told that they will call in a prescription but they don't, or where they pharmacy has contacted them for a prescription refill but they say that they haven't received the prescription. Then, after several days of waiting without medications, their office doesn't seem to have any sense of urgency about getting the prescription called in and fixing the problem.
