Good all right.

4/26/2016

Dr. Westcott seems to be a reserved and quiet person, and I respect that in his interactions with me. This may color feedback on his bedside manner from people who don't understand that. Whatever he says is always to the point and important, and I have no qualms about his skills.

Every thing has been outstanding.
