Patient care is a priority
Dr West has been involved with my care for the past 1.5 years. He has always provided professional patient care, pre and post procedures. His thorough explanations and recommendations for treatment always made me feel at ease. Dr West is an exemplary example of the type of care patients receive at NE Spine Center.

He is a great professional and has a wonderful bed side manner. I would recommend him to anyone with spine and related issues. Thank you Dr West and your staff.

Dr. West has a very calming style. I feel he explains what may be going on and then addresses the options. It can be hard to get into see him since he is booked out a few weeks ahead. Most of his support staff is very friendly but and thoughtful. Some seemed more rushed and less engaged in MY care.

Dr. West performed an EMG on me and made a not so pleasant procedure not so bad. He explained everything he was going to do before he did it and then asked about my comfort level. As always NSC is a very professional facility.
