Dr West totally saved me by removing a nasty hemmerhoid with a same day appointment. He is very knowledgeable and explains things completely. I will continue to see Dr West for all hemmerhoid issues. Also, all of the people who work at his office are very nice and understanding.

Best Hemorrhoid & Colonoscopy Doctor Ever!
I've had hemorrhoid since I was 25, now i'm 50! Dr. West is THE BEST in his business. I've been seeing him for more than a decade now and I stopped seeing other doctors. He's got the best bedside manor, best practice, and best options available for relief. I totally trust him as a Doctor and Physician. They can get you in if needed in case of an emergency and everyone in the office is very professional. I completely trust him and his practice with my colonoscopy and hemorrhoid issues. I've had 2 colonoscopy's under him and they have been smooth and seamless. thanks Dr. West and Friends! You can 100% trust the care you get here.

Horrid!
Was WAS too pushy to want to get me in for surgery THAT DAY! My issue is nothing new to me and I've had surgery several times so he is not the first Dr I've been to. since I was on my lunch break and couldn't do surgery that day they proceeded to schedule me for surgery the following Monday WITHOUT ASKING IF I WAS AVAILIABLE. I was terrified at this point. Absolutely would NOT recommend this guy and I think he should be investigated. He couldn't even feel my lump but pushed to do surgery! He could NOT even tell me what I would come out of surgery with, like I was suppose to just blindly trust him! again I've has serval surgeries in this area so his behavior was so alarming!

I was having multiple issues and Dr. West explained what the process would entail in order to get on the road to recovery. Every experience with Dr. West and his amazing staff was not only professional but I felt like they really cared and were truly committed to getting me better. I've dealt with many specialist for myself and with other family members and can honestly say that when it comes to bedside manners/knowledge of the issues and overall care and compassion that Dr. West is the BEST:)

Dr. West was referred to me by my a medical associate and friend. Dr. West was very quick to get me in and do a colonoscopy and hemorrhoid repair in same surgery. I was nervous and he eased my fears because is was very professional and explained what he could do to correct my problem. I will return and refer anyone who needs help. Don't put you health conditions off. This was a big worry that I no longer have. Thanks Dr. West.

Really impressed with this physician! As a woman veteran suffering from PTSD I must say I have a hard time seeing any male doctors especially for colon issues! But when I met Dr West and his staff I realized I was in great and capable hands. He is a genuine individual who cares for his patients and ha she’s even the most humiliating issue with utmost patience and understanding. He really is such a great physician I have my family going to see him now too! I HIGHLY recommend him that much!

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!

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!
