Santa Barbara, CA |
Hands down the most wonderful physician in Santa Barbara. He's not only a skilled doctor, he's a kind human being who listens and genuinely cares about his patients. He takes the time to clearly provide all the facts (the good and the not so good), then thoroughly? discusses every option available. His knowledge is vast and his bedside manner is unmatched. 10 stars

Dr. West is an amazing ,thoughtful and very thorough Doctor. He is the best neurologist I have ever seen. His bedside manner is top notch and he is so generous with his time and efforts explaining everything.

I saw him when he was in his residency at UCSF when I was at my worst! My prognosis was not good. As a 19 year old, Hearing that I'd be in a wheelchair by the time I was 30 was terrifying if something wasn't done. He basically nursed me back to health! He knew the right medication I needed, He explains EVERYTHING thoroughly, he will draw you diagrams to help you understand what is going on, and he truly wants whats best for you! To top i off, he's extremely personable! FANTASTIC DOCTOR!!!
Lompoc, CA |
