General Information


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.

Dr West is what I think of as a DO. I've actually not met another DO that was this well rounded.

Dr. West is amazing. He really listens to what you are saying...and not saying and really cares about how I am doing!

Dr West has unique "spine doc" expertise. Swedish needs to hire more docs with such expertise so that when my pain level elevates I can get a near term help. Having to wait 2-3 months, when I hurt bad and need help, is not acceptable.

My experience with Dr. west is always good. The issue is his availability. I strongly feel that if I were able to see him once a week, my chronic low back pain would improve. Instead my appointments are spaced out 4-6 weeks ( unless I get a cancellation), and although progress is made, my symptoms return. I believe his manipulations would be more effective if done more frequently. I think instead of having to see him once a month forever with short lived results, a weekly appointment would have more effect.

Dr. West is genuinely trying to help me with my complex medical injuries that I have been treating for somewhere else for at least 18 months. He is realistic when it comes to expectations and doesn't give false promises/hopes. He is kind and caring physician.

Dr West is one of easiest doctor's to relate to. I think he does an excellent job of putting the patient at ease. After only two visits I think have an excellent relationship with him.

Dr West was worth waiting for. I can't remember the last time I felt so well cared for during a medical appt. My first visit was an HOUR long. I returned to work after my appt and told my co-workers I had just come from one of the best medical appts I'd ever had. Giving patients the gift of time makes all the difference. Also, working with a provider who truly enjoys his profession makes the time spent together very productive. I feel so fortunate to be able to work with Dr West.

Tony West is the most effective spine doc in the Eastside area. Numerous spine and pain docs have tried to fix the pain problems in my thoracic and cervical spine. Tony is the best of all of them.

Doctor spent a half hour with me. We could easily spend 45-60 minutes to address treat the body wholelistically. This doctors treatments are so affective that you can only get an appointment once every 4-6 weeks. [...]

Except for getting an appointment, this would be something that would prevent me from recommending as the wait times to get an appointment and follow-up appointments are too long

Dr. West has a philosophy of care in which I am the healer - not himself. This allows me to have confidence in myself and to trust that I can create the environment in which my body can heal.
