On my recent appointment I was receiving two injections in my back/hip. Dr. West made me feel very comfortable, given the stressful situation. He explained everything he was doing and asked several times if I was doing okay. I would highly recommend him.

Doctor Matthew West was helpful, concerned about my mom Anna Crump. He explained the procedure and will see her if she has more persistent pain in her hip. We were pleased that he injected her spine for sciatica.

Dr. West and his staff were attentive in listening to the issues our son was faced with. They looked at all possibilities related to the injury and were prompt in getting results to us. I love that we could do all Xrays and MRI scans right there on site. It made the process so much easier.

I have been coming to doctor West for a long time before he ever came to your facility and he has always been the most conscientious the kindest and most caring doctor that I have seen or been taken care of by in a long time he doesn't do unnecessary treatments he does not believe in overly invasive treatments and he never has prescribed anything for me that didn't work I may not have been real happy with what he prescribed but everytime I followed his direction and it's the only reason at age 71 that I am still able to drive a motor coach and I am still able to work full time God love him I just wish there were more like him
