Biography & Education

Biography
Dr. West fully embraces the osteopathic philosophy, which is to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is used to facilitate the integration of structural and functional elements and their coordination for complex human movements and behavior. The techniques focus on removing mechanical hindrances, allowing the body to realize its health potential. Muscle energy, strain-counterstrain, cranial osteopathy, balanced ligamentous tension and myofascial release are among some of the many different techniques he employs in his practice. As a physician, Dr. Wests goal is to help patients in all age groups overcome the obstacles that prevent them from fully participating in their life.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr West is excellent at understanding what my concerns are by addressing those concerns with compassion. He explains what course of action will help alleviate the pain during my appointment and then provides his knowledge to improve my health

Dr. West is extremely kind and respectful. I have never worked with a Doctor that is so intuitive and observant. He misses nothing and listens carefully, he asks very insightful questions and is genuinely interested in your answer, and his humor is delightful and healing. I am very grateful for his knowledge and skill. [...], his assistant is always very kind and makes you feel cared for too, she listens and is attentive and caring.
