Would not recommend!!!


Dr. Wescott showed compassion to me while discussing scleroderma disease I have He even took time to look up on the computer things about upcoming surgery and a medicene I am on I was very impressed and will definitely go back to him for followup


All he wanted to do was to Operate on me. He Dr. Westcott acted like he had no time for me or my problem.




Doctor was in a hurry and was texting someone when he finally got into room. He did not exam my healed incisions or anything. Sat down at computer asked how I was and typed something on computer then texted back and forth. I asked him for a doctors note and told him what I needed on it. He totally messed that up and his receptionist fixed it and was very nice. This was my 3 week check up after donating a kidney. I was dying or anything but there was no care given to me.


I appreciate having a resident with the doctor. If they can learn something about my ailment that's great.




The dr. & PA who arrived assisted *Dr. Westcott were exemplary. He was "too" busy.


Very informative and helpful. Explained everything and what to expect going forward in easy to understand terms. Very educational and empowering to be involved with this team.


Very caring.


Has great rapport with patients!


the doctor didn't know if I was the patient or if my mom was, he did not discuss my after care with me and just barely even looked at my incisions, he didn't even know why he had performed surgery on me. he did not know anything about me when he came in the room.
