Patient Comments (2)
Dover, DE |
Dr. West is good if you can actually contact the office. However, they only answer phone calls between 10:30-3 and often don't return messages. Even at 10:30, frequently I call and their answering service says they haven't started taking calls for the day. This makes it unpredictable when I can actually reach them and extremely difficult to make/change/cancel appointments.
