in Mountain Center, CA |
I went to Dr. West for a second opinion and he missed my sage 3C breast cancer altogether. I had a 4 cm lump and lymph node involvement and he didn't find any of it. Called me by a wrong first name. Didnt seem to be on top of anything. HORRIBLE DOCTOR. Would never recommend him to anyone.
