What People Say About Dr. Lesley West, MD
Reply
I do not recommend a physician to anyone. I do so in this review only because the survey would not accept my input without this answer. Doctor West (and staff) were very thorough, both in reviewing my medical history, and in the physical exam. She (and staff) took time to answer all questions, and to explain any statement I did not understand on first hearing. Further, she saw me on very short notice (three days) on referral by Doctor Stacy Hershfeld.
