Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Best doctor ever!
Dr. West is by far my favorite doctor. She is always so personable and makes her patients feel comfortable and never rushes them. I also love how she is very responsive with messages on MyChart. Long Beach Memorial is VERY lucky to have her on their team.

Dr. West was very receptive and patient with my questions. She also provided great references for preconception planning. She helped me feel informed and at ease. Also, Jamika (nurse) was very nice and helpful during my first time visit.

Staff was professional. Short wait time. The nurse explained each step of her data collection. Dr West was very helpful and so easy to ask questions of around my specific needs. I didn’t feel rushed, but rather my specific needs addressed.

Dr. West is very professional, as well as warm and relatable. She is very knowledgeable and thorough in her practice, even beyond the OB "baby years". Very lucky to have been recommended to her from several of my RN colleagues.
