Washington, DC |
I think he is well-educated, polite and to the point. My appointments are short. He does read the lab results before coming into the room and has an idea of where to go in my health plan. I see him about 3-4 times a year to manage my diabetes, and have no plans on changing. I did see his dietitian once, which I didn't fine to be useful. We both agreed that my diet is reasonable.

Worst experience ever. I went in thinking I would have an appointment with Dr. West; nope. I had an appointment with his dietician or whatever she is. She was very nice but I don't need a dietician, I needed an endocrinologist. They do not look at test results on an optimal/functional level,bthey basically go off of whatever the lab says and don't pay attention to your symptoms and getting to the root of the symptoms. Here I am 6 months later still suffering.
Washington, DC |
His unwillingness to comply with my request to limit his treatment to the reason I was seeing him--he ordered a bunch of tests that were unrelated to my visit. Inability to provide test results any other way than by making an appointment to see the doctor. Total time actually speaking to the doctor is limited to less than 5 minutes per visit. Disrespectful office manager--excessively demanding (10 day invoices), inflexible, uncooperative, lacks a patient/customer centered office!
