from the beginning dr.west has had a friendly and professional attitude. throughout my pregnancy him and his nurses always helped with any concerns I may have had. I greatly appreciate him for delivering my baby safely. I still use him as my doctor and will use him to deliver any other children of mine. thank you doctor west for the greatest experience I could of imagined with my first born.
Dr. West is remarkable, initially met him at ST Michaels ER. My 64 yr old mother had been going back & forth to the DR, for spotting. Her DR constantly said it was still Menopause, nothing to worry about. Then one day, she was having terrible pains & the spotting increased so I took her to the ER. Thank you Lord, DR. West was the physician on call that day for GYN, after examing her, he said I need to send your mother to UAMS for further more thorough evals. Xray reveals she has a Ovarian tumor bout the size of a JR Basketball. Went to UAMS that night, she had surgery at 5 the next morning. Mama was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian / Cervical CA. Could of been worse if DR. West did not have the knowledge he did that day. She lived another 8 years after being diagnosed. Anyway, thats why I started going to him, he was an excellent DOC, great bedside manners and he just makes you feel as if he is geniunely concerned with your care. I moved from the area 5 years ago and the GYN DR's I've been seeing just dont measure up. Seriously thinking about making the 3 1/2 hr drive for my annual. I miss the service I received from him and his staff at The Women Specialists, they are unreplaceable.
