TESTIMONIALS

Dr West took such wonderful care of my husband Dick and that care extended his life by years. I continue to be fortunate to have him helping me to stay healthy. I wish there was a way for everyone to experience that quality of medicine.

By the way in the last two days this office is the only place that took my temperature before they would let me in. Shell Point and another doctors' office just ask you the questions as to where you have been lately.

Keep up the good work! PH
