Care Philosophy

"Choosing medicine as my profession, I knew I wanted to help people. My goal is to help people feel at ease, to not feel embarrassed or fearful and to solve their problem as quickly as possible.

The philosophy of Dr. Robert West and his staff is to treat you, the patient, with a holistic approach. That means treating your symptoms and helping you enjoy overall good health and well-being.

Obviously anything regarding Dr. West's line of work is uncomfortable and difficult to discuss. I dealt with my issue for years before breaking down and seeing Dr. West and I don't regret it at all! Dr. West and his entire staff are amazing and understand that it's difficult for some patients to discuss rectal issues with anyone! I would highly recommend Dr. West to anyone!

    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."
