    Worst doctor I've ever seen. Zero communication, impossible to get in touch with when complications arose, and his nurse's lack of professionalism was appalling. I would NOT recommend Dr. West for any medical needs
    Greenville, SC |
    Waited 6 weeks for an appointment and the Friday before the appointment the office called to cancel. Have a critical lung infection that can only be treated with IV antibiotics. Was told Dr. West can not help me. No referral, no concern.
