What People Say About Dr. John Westfall, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The Doctor insulted my Dr because he was “one of those young guys”. He went around the corner and told another Dr that there was nothing wrong etc. That other Dr didn’t necessarily agree and ordered more testing. It’s not just that his findings disregard all my symptoms, test findings, and prior medical Dr’s findings - but it’s HOW he disagreed. It was his dismissive and derisive tone. It was his insistence on asking the age of everyone I previously worked with. It was the fact that his tone indicated I might be making it up, and all in earshot because he had this convo around the corner to a Asian Dr, and I felt bad for her. She was very nice to me, and he talked loudly at her (she was not hard of hearing) likely because she had a slight accent. Maybe it’s because he was so old he doesn’t understand that talking louder doesn’t make potential language barriers any easier.

All he was concerned about was getting me out of the office as quickly as he could. Didn't want to take the time to find out what was bothering me. Don't waste your time.

I will never return to Dr. Westfall, nor will I recommend him to anyone. He spent less than 5 minutes with me & did not listen to what I said. He cut me off from what I was saying multiple times & basically told me I was suffering from allergies but I was fine. He offered nothing else. Please explain to me why my teeth hurt, head throbs, head is plugged & I wake up sweating, etc. This is normal to him and I can get an xray when I am bad (If I am not bad now, not sure what he thinks is bad).

Spent all of 4 minutes on me...didn't seem to care about any of my symptoms. He literally at one point ignored what I was saying and just kept on talking about how my lymph nodes weren't "that swollen" They hurt tho!!!!!. I went to see him because both sides of my face in the cheek region are extremely painful....to the point where I just sit and cry sometimes. I can feel lumps in my face where it hurts....he basically told me it was all in my head, Worst doctor I have ever been to.

Dr. Westfall was our daughters surgeon and he was very kind and respectful. He sat down with us and answered all of our questions and he made us feel at ease. We were very happy with him and the staff at the surgery center.

I wasn't accurately diagnosed. I wasn't given the time of day. A family medicine doctor accurately diagnosed me later and actually cared and tried to help me. It ended up being a simple diagnoses--one that potentially saved me from losing my hearing in my early twenties.
