good

2/14/2018

Again, everything went well. Can't really answer some of these questions to the best of my ability because my PCP referred me to Dr Westcott. My PCP took care of making this appointment I just showed up.

1/17/2018

I travel over an hour to see Dr. Westcott about my health issues. I absolutely would not trust anyone else . He listens to my concerns and treats me with respect.

11/20/2017

Dr. Wescot and his team were all thorough, professional, and personable. I appreciate their commitment to quality of care and experience throughout my visit. They included my family throughout the process which was a relief to me and made my experience that much better.

11/15/2017

good

11/10/2017

My overall experience was really good. I don't have a problem, or our on any medications. I'm focus on what I need to do and have an excellent medical team to get it down. It really makes a difference when your doctors make you feel safe and confident everything will go well.

10/24/2017

Dr. Wescott explained everything to me, possible complications for upcoming surgery to the procedure that he will perform.

7/17/2017

I always tell people, I'd probably be dead if not for Dr. Westcott. And I feel that's the truth.
