Dr. Westphal was very caring, knowledgeable, and polite. She was clear in her explanation of my condition and possible treatments. She immediately followed up after my visit and followed through on all promises. Dr. Westphal called me back earlier than promised with my test results and talked about next steps based on the results.

I considered it a waste of time and money consulting with this doctor. I didn't get anything from her other than reading the result of blood works (2x) which my primary care should be able to do. Doesn't voluntary explain things unless you ask. I don't really know what her role really was on my case.

Never asked how I was feeling Never examined or even touched Not a good listener Not proactive on patient care Only interested in lab results
