Office help sucks big time.When she says,leave your #,phone number & a brief message,& I will get back to you,and when the broad does not,never does,that tells me that she is a LIAR.So if she does this at where she works,she must lie all the time.Her title or her name should be,just call me a filthy liar.

I feel fortunate to have moved across the country and found a competent gynecologist. Dr. Westermoe was incredibly judgy and failed to diagnose my pcos. She was more concerned with trying to make a 30 year old have an unnecessary bladder test and appointments with her took forever. Oh and be prepared for her to bill your insurance exorbitant amounts of money and make you come into the office for normal test results with unnecessary follow ups so that you have to pay a copay for a 5 min visit.

This was my first time coming to Dr. Westermoe. I have never been to a doctor who has taken so much time to listen to me. She was very understanding and personable. She took each of my concerns very seriously, explained what she thought was happening and what she needed to do, and asked me for my feedback about what I needed. The office staff was incredibly kind and put me at ease. I felt so much better about concerns that I have been trying to seek help for for years.
