I had gone to Dr. Westphal because I had seen him years ago for hip problems. I felt that he did not take my pain seriously ( I try to buck it out because I do not want pain meds) and felt that I had spent money for wasted time and being completely discounted. After being in chronic pain daily for years and then to have it completely dismissed, was in tears the whole way home. I would not recommend this doctor.
