What People Say About Dr. Timothy West, MD

Most amazing doctor a lady could ever ask for! He is patient, attentive, empathetic...really, he is everything a doctor should be. He listens, and I mean actually listens. Even when I was emotional and crying my pregnant heart out, he was there, handing me a tissue and telling me it was okay to cry. He is laid back and never tried to push any care/tests/procedures/advice that I wasn't comfortable with. Honestly, I absolutely love him.

Dr. West did not listen to my concerns or test me towards the end of my pregnancy. This lead to an unnecessary induction. Postpartum care was a joke. I called many times since I had pain and bleeding that didn’t feel right. He ignored me and said to wait. At my six week visit he discovered I didn’t heal, down there. I was in so much pain that should have been addressed earlier. I switched doctor’s and it took 15 weeks to start feeling better. I will never use Dr West or recommend him to anyone.

I swear Dr. West walks on water! I had a different OB with my first 2 pregnancies, the 3rd I chose to switch to Dr. West. I wish I would’ve had him as an OB all along. I have never had a physician that cared so much and took so much time to comfort me, especially one we found out that our baby has medical problems. Dr. West and his team are absolutely amazing and I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. West is a calm and compassionate physician who really worked to understand my needs and that of my family. He is great at communicating information and listening to patient questions. He never appears rushed and is very thorough. I highly recommend this physician.

My first pregnancy and delivery experience was fantastic thanks to the efforts of Dr. West and his team. I really appreciate everything they have done for me and my baby. I've never had better or more personal care from a healthcare team. Dr. West deserves a million of 5-star reviews. Thank you!

I started going to Dr. West 17 years ago when I was pregnant with my second daughter. I've continued seeing him all these years, through just yearly exams as well as surgeries that I needed. In November Dr. West delivered my grandson! He is an awesome doctor, extremely caring and never hurries through visits.

Dr. West is amazing. He delivered my baby girl and I can't think of one complaint. He knew I was worried about the pregnancy because we'd tried so long to get pregnant, and he reassured me every visit. He's friendly and soft spoken. His nurse is amazing too. My daughter was born with the cord around her neck and he was so calm, and kept me calm. I suffered post partum depression and he got me in immediately. He really cares about his patients. Staff is awesome too. Very easy to get appointments.
