Specialties

Dr. David J West has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Very happy with this doctor

I was able to schedule an appointment in a timely way and when I went in, the nurse took detailed information. Dr West was very prompt once this was done and spent a remarkably long time listening to me talk. He was kind and so easy to talk to - I felt like I could trust him instantly. He noted a few things that I had wanted to talk about and was able to look at tests from other doctors instead of ordering redundant ones. I am very confident in his level of expertise.

GREAT DOCTOR!!

Went for initial visit/physical. Dr. West expressed knowledge, and concern of my past medical history, and was easy going. He even called me himself with the test results! No other doctor has ever done that! I was very impressed, and feel comfortable that he is a Caring, Professional Doctor.
