Aside for always rushing thru the visit, and treating you practically at the door, Dr, Westfried had misdiagnosed me, decided to burn a cyst that he insisted I had when it was actually Basal Cell Carcinoma that was diagnosed by a more careful Dr. So no, I would not recommend this Dr to anyone. Maybe it's time to hang your hat doctor!

Seriously the worst experience I ever had with any Doctor. The receptionists were rude and sarcastic. They rushed me because they said he wanted to go home in 10 minutes. He looked at my hands. Didn't ask possibly why my symptoms started. Or when. I have acrylic on my nails. Like probably most women in Brooklyn do. He says " o great. U have this CRAP on your hands. Take it off" . He said he called for my prescription . But the pharmacy never got his call in.

I paid a 40.00 dollar copay for a 2 mins visit. He rush through the visit. Just looked at my foot spoke so fast like he was in a rush. While in the waiting area. I watched patient go in come out in 2 mins. He did not ask if I had any questions. I had to ask him to repeat himself because he would talk so fast that you can tell he was in a rush to get out of the room.
