Patient Reviews ? Write a Review
She is one of my favorite doctors. You will wait to see her, her appointments are very rarely on time, but it is because she spends all the time needed with each patient. I have nothing negative to say about her or her staff. When I had a biopsy, she called me personally with the results. I wish she was a primary care doctor.
Dr. Westhoff is akind and warmhated lady. I luv her alot !
I never write reviews. I was so compelled to write one for Dr. W. She is so insightful, genuine, brilliant, and you can tell highly experienced. Yes, you will wait months to see her, but as my GP said, "worth the wait". She says it as it is and I feel so inspired that I will finally get my diabetes under control. She even emails her patients! Her front desk woman was very friendly, which is a first too for me.
Waited 40 minutes past appointment time. Doctor did not bother to see me. Sent in NP. NP spent less than 5 minutes and did not really listen to me, This office obviously overbooks and the doctor is too busy to see patients.
Your reviews have made me feel better about seeing Dr.Westhoff. I went to a Dr. Poorsattar in Camarillo and she totally lived up to everyone of her poor reviews.. I wish I had come here first and seen them.
Dr W is the best..knowledgeable, genuine, natural, cares. She practices academically but doesn't make you feel stupid. Won't give you meds unless needed. Beware of other scam hormone doctors pushing compounded drugs or too much thyroid hormone. I learned the hard way. Now I have heart problem and osteoporosis. Trust Dr WP instead.
so experienced and really knows her stuff. She gets to the point and can see probably 30-40 patients a day and know several details about each one cuz she is so organized and intelligent. My family doctor said she is hard to see but worth the wait. The only endocrinologist that the ER and hospital doctors trust cuz she is well trained with complicated cases, says my family doctor. We r so lucky to have her in little Ventura! Great bedside manner too!
You will love her. I am in tears because I was so relieved to find a doctor nearby that is right on target. I dont have to travel to LA. She trained at UCLA and USC and is very experienced with large volume of complicated Endo patients.
Excellent bedside manner. More importantly, highly respected by all my other doctors. She is hard to get to see because she is so in demand, but worth it. She knows her stuff, and wont try to sell you a lot of BS. I trusted her opinion. I am an intelligent patient; I dont fall for charleton doctors like other Endos out there.
Trust me, you will love her. She is VERY smart, VERY easy to talk to, excellent reputation among other doctors (my doctor said, "You can only see her for endocrinolgy, she is the best in town"). She doesnt try to sell you things or feed you BS. Scientific and trustworthy, exceptionally empathetic.
She knows her stuff, is current on treatments, etc., & had been a patient of hers for about 6 years, but I have to say, her staff overbooks & in all those years, my average wait time was about 40-45 minutes - this is unacceptable when a patient has other plans post appointment.
An amazing doctor. Incredibly smart, witty, sharp, great listener, and not trying to push a bunch of supplements and gimmicks. She seems legitamate and all the doctors in town say she is the best Endocrinolgist.
Because I found out I was pregnant just a few months after I found out I was a Type II Diabetic, Dr. Westhoff's office saw me within a day of my calling for a first-time appointment. She really listened to my concerns about being pregnant & diabetic at the same time and with her help - I've had a worry-free pregnancy. She replies to my emails & phone calls very promptly (even on her days off). Her office staff is also very courteous & her personal assistant is great at following up.
Do not recommend this girl, find yourself a more experienced doctor that will help you with your problem as I did.
Dr. Westhoff is extremely bright, and very easy to talk to because she really LISTENS to her patients. She explains what is going on in your body, and what she is going to do to help. I waited 3 Months for a first time appointment with this Doctor because of her wonderful reputation. It is well worth the wait!
Very smart, able to communicate, highly trained. Ventura is lucky to have her.
