Dr. West is a superb doctor. He is gentle in manner, concise in explanations, warm and friendly, very highly skilled and knowledgable. My mother, age 99, was delighted with his personality and his treatment. He made her comfortable, worked quickly, and she had no discomfort in her very sensitive ears during treatment. He cleared the clogged passages (one clogged to the point of not being able to hear) and she felt relieved and glad in a short time. I was able to get her an appointment as a new patient in just a couple of days. His staff was extremely gracious and caring of my mother who needs some assistance in moving about. We were very happy with Dr. West and would see him again without any hesitation and will recommend him to friends.

I felt rushed during my first visit with Dr. West. I felt he didn't spend enough time (less than 10 minutes) in the exam room trying to diagnose my sinus issues. He wanted me to do a Ct scan next which I refused. I plan on looking for a better ENT doc. I spent 25 minutes in the waiting room and less than 10 minutes in the exam room.

Dr. West is a Great Doctor! Very professional with excellent bedside manners. He is a straight shooter and let's you know all the facts. I am so fortunate to have him as my ENT. He did an excellent job with my sinus surgery. Michael Cline

Nice enough guy. But seriously, if OMEPRAZOLE was the cure, there would've been a problem a long time ago because my eating habits haven't changed for years. Still sneezing on a regular basis, ears still hurt, still coughing. I now have a CATARACT in my eye due to solutions for my cough that *must* be stomach related. Omeprazole hasn't made a difference. I guess I'll get a second opinion from a guy who doesn't charge me for surgery when in reality it was a diagnostic test with an endoscope.
