Very warm and informative. Felt that she truly cared about my fertility journey and wanted to help and ease my fears and anxieties. She spent her time answering all my questions in a way that I can understand. And met me with empathy.

Dr. West was so warm and kind. I almost felt like I was an old friend coming back for a visit!!! Her entire staff is just as warm and welcoming. How refreshing to see a team seem so happy to be working to help people!!!! The office itself is spacious which allowed them to keep patients destanced appropriately (which is so very appreciated!). Yes! I would absolutely refer family and friends to Dr. West and her team!

My reason for this appointment was not a pleasant one, but she made me feel relaxed and calmer by talking to me. This was the first visit with Dr. West, but it certainly won’t be my last. I do really appreciate having her as my doctor.

Dr. West was a good doctor in the beginning. The huge issue that upset me was that as my OB while I was pregnant, she decided to strip my membranes during a routine cervical exam WITHOUT asking me, without telling me she was going to do it, without explanation of what was happening (it hurts!), and without explaining why she would do that. I just started my 39th week of pregnancy and did NOT need to be induced via membrane stripping. Long story short, I had a fetal-intolerant labor a couple days later that ended in a c-section with "premature rupture of membranes" listed as the "ACTIVE PROBLEM" on my operative report (she wasn't even the Dr. to deliver, as she was unavailable). Stripping my membranes without any discussion whatsoever was WRONG of her to do and I will be forever upset about it, especially because it caused a difficult labor and major surgery. It is wrong for any Dr. to perform a procedure (especially such an invasive one) without asking or having prior discussion.

I didn’t know I had postpartum depression until I met Dr West. She was courteous, empathetic and caring about my well-being postpartum. Thank you for taking the time to empathize with me not only as a doctor, but person to person.
