Dr. West says...

Dr. Robert West didn't choose proctology as much as proctology chose him. During his residency he served in a proctology office. "I found that it was very rewarding to help people with sensitive issues like hemorrhoids, and other colon and rectal issues that are hard to discuss, let alone to seek help from a physician.  Seeing a doctor for a headache or wound to your arm is a lot different than seeing a doctor for rectal pain or bleeding."

 

Many doctors are faced with the challenge of dividing their time between the office and the hospital. It becomes a challenge to give the care that is needed.

 

"Most of the procedures for hemorrhoids, anal fissures, and anal warts can be performed in our office. This affords me more time to spend with my patients."
