Dr. Robert West, DO
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."

Learn about Dr. West

Care Philosophy

Dr. Robert West knows that hemorrhoids, anal fissures, constipation and other medical conditions of the colon and rectum not only affect a person's quality of life, but they are sensitive to discuss, embarrassing and can represent very serious health issues.

"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. That's why we offer same day appointments for patients who may experience severe pain or bleeding."

 

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.

"My staff and I look forward to serving you." Call: 314-720-0050

Although I got in the same day, I would rather have waited. Dr. West could not explain or give guidance on why symptoms were still occurring after surgery. After the fourth appointment of being told "give it more time", I knew I needed to go elsewhere. When I did go elsewhere, I found out that the surgery was performed incorrectly and caused the spread of an infection, which prompted another surgery 60 days after the first. I am now on the road to recovery, but not because of Dr. West.

I was in severe pain that stemmed from my "hemorrhoid" all the way up my left butt cheek close to my tailbone. I could not walk,lay, or sit without feeling like I was going to vomit or pass out from pain. I called 10 proctologists & he was the only one who took me in & did THAT morning.Turns out my "hemorrhoid" was an infected fissure which caused an abscess & he scheduled a surgery for the next day. He was great and I couldn't be more happy with how fast I got help I thought I was going to die!

Excellent bedside manners! Remarkable work. I had next day surgery and I feel 100% relief today

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!
