Dr. Westmoreland is the best. He always listens to my problems and helps me with the discomfort and pain in my knee. I will continue to use him as long as I can.
in Montgomery, TX |
Dr. Westmoreland has been my only Orthopedic since moving to Texas. I convinced my wife to have Dr. Westmoreland do her very successful hip surgery. Doc (as I call him) is very knowledgeable, through and understanding when explaining what needs to be done to treat the reason for the visit.

Dr. Westmoreland is always friendly and to the point when it comes to his advice regarding your concerns.
Montgomery, TX |
Referred by my Dr after an ankle fracture. My Dr made the appt for me which I also confirmed. The receptionist (Yolanda) had incorrect appt info. Tried 4 times to explain that I was there for my FOOT, NOT my knee. She refused to listen, got very rude with me/my partner, as well as my Dr when they were called to clear it up. Then, they said they had to have their own x-rays not the ones sent by my Dr! We ran to get them; they then said the disks were blank. Never saw Dr W, we finally walked out.

Very compassionate very direct bad bedside manner very good surgeon

Told me I just had arthritis in my knee & shot cortisone in it. I had already told him symptoms were same as previous torn meniscus which required surgery. Not only do I have a torn meniscus again but a stress fracture in the tibia as well. Think twice before using this doctor.
Houston, TX |
My grandmother sees this doctor due to knee injury. She complains of pain yet he doesn't want to investigate any further on what might be causing more pain. He doesn't communicate with her. He comes in gives her a shot in her knee and leaves. Never takes the time to hear her out. I don't recommended this place...
in Conroe, TX |
Very good experience with him 5 days post op did not speak to me after surgery but spoke with girlfriend after surgery ..Conroe hospital very good expereince very nice crew Dr spoke to me before surgery was very nice
in Montgomery, TX |
Dr. Westmoreland took over my Knee Replacement care after Dr. El-Zaim moved. He had been very courteous and professional. he has answered all my questions. I would recommend him to anyone,
in Huntsville, TX |
Dr. Westmoreland is in and out, he doesn't engage with me and I feel like I'm a burden rather than a patient. He has never taken a moment to speak with me about my injury other than to spout off that I don't need surgery.I literally dread going to his office.
