Patient Comments (1)
in Phoenix, AZ |
Retinal detachment while visiting Holland. Hospital Dr. recommended Dr. Westhouse and will be forever thankful. The situation was clearly conveyed and I was able to make an informed decision to delay surgery for 1 day and make it back home. Dr. Westhouse personally took the time to verify (with a great surgeon in my home city) that I would be seen the next day. Fantastic referral and the results have been stellar so far. Incredible staff and team Dr. Westhouse has.
