Patient Comments (3)
Memphis, TN |
After waiting for 5 months an as a high risk patient I found dr. Wester with very little compassion, and very curt. As I had only meet him once the day of my apt. And there were many other factors, I found him to be very rude and curt. He is not on the side of his patients.I was very disappointed on the day of mysurgery that he accused me of not following a plan that had been in place so as I could have my surgery,which was not true, he do not seem to put his patients first. I was dismissed.
I had previously been diagnosed with avascular necrosis of femoral head. I seen this doctor once. He showed me an xray from his office which looked bogus. He told me the bone is perfect, nothing wrong. I never went back. I will have surgery next month elsewhere due to that "perfect" bone being completely gone, due to hip dysplasia. Wester barely gave me any time. Before going to him, i already had the avascular necrosis diagnosis, he knew this and said the bone was perfect.
