Dr Westmoreland was very helpful in explaining my issues with my wrist. He then reminded me I never got an mri of my knee from a visit last year so we were able to get that taken care of. He is always concerned and listens to what the patient and family member have to say or ask. Great manners and makes you feel comfortable when you leave.

This was my second visit with Dr. Westmoreland and it went better than the first he did address my concerns and schedule an MRI but prescribed nothing for the pain in my shoulder or for inflammation. He is very good at his job and if you like a very direct and up front doctor he is right for you, if not you may leave offended, I personally like direct and up front.

I was referred to Dr Westmoreland to check knee problem. First appointment received without a long wait. Staff very good and friendly. I was impressed with equipment he has in office. Doctor was very friendly and through, not in a rush and took time to answer all my questions. I will use again if needed.

I heard the words "I don't know what the loud noise was that you heard" in regard to my knee completely collapsing as I descended a set of steps. I also heard that the xrays were negative. I felt I received good news, yet, days (2 weeks) later I was still on crutches and had no opinion from a physician as to what had happened to my knee. I still dont. It was as if my description of the incident was fantasy. I assure you it was not. Dr Westmoreland may be a great surgeon and physician, Idon't know, but I walked away hearing the words "all you can do is hope this doesn't happen again". I was happy the xrays were negative of course but I felt left in the dark as a whole.

I highly recommend Dr. Westmoreland, his staff and the hospital he uses for his surgery. I went to two hospitals and three surgeons before my surgery with Dr. Westmoreland. I did my research and I couldn't be happier. The efficiency and skill he uses as a Doctor is amazing. My recovery is smoother and faster. I highly recommend any patient to see him for medical treatment.
