DR West and his staff were very professional and friendly. I had severe allergy and sinus pain. Dr. West took his time and got to the bottom of my sinus problems. He treated me in the office and my allergies and sinus problems are gone. I feel so much better. The trip to his office was worth it. I highly reccommend Dr. West .

I was very pleased with my experience at Dr. West office. He was very thorough and took time to discuss the issues I was having. I did not feel like I was being rushed and appreciated him taking the time needed to answer my questions. His staff was extremely welcoming as well. I live in the Plano area but the drive to South Dallas is not an issue for the care I received from him and his office staff.

Horrible experience!! I should of got paid for going and doing their job!!! I had a 7:30 appt walked in early like 7:15 and had to interrupt the girl at the front from texting her life away, she was so busy on her phone she didn't see my walk in! Then she took my back and I waited to see the doctors asked to use the restroom and when I was walking to the back to use the restroom there she was again with all my clinical information out and texting her life away again! Definetely NEVER GOONF BACK!

MY visit with Dr. West was great. He listened to all my concerns and explained the treatment plan. Dr. west office is equipped with the latest medical diagnostic scopes. i have nasal polyps which Dr. west was able to remove in the office and i avoided a surgery. I left the office feeling better than ever. They also set up a treatment plan to make sure my polyps don't return and my chronic sinus can be controlled. The office staff were very friendly and mos helpful. I highly recommend this doctor

On my third visit, Dr. West said he didn't want to handle my case. He didn't want to learn anything new, said he was afraid he might hurt me, and was too old to handle my chronic illness. I have CVID, and see a specialist for that, but need someone local to handle ongoing infections. He didn't want to see me any more, and suggested another doctor.

Dr. West seemed to really care about my medical needs. He spent time with me and he did not seem rushed or disengaged during my visit. He set me up allergy treatment and it helped right away. Definitely recommend Dr. West.
