Anthony A. West, DO

Languages: English
Accepting New Patients
Professional Statement
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 exceptional. I feel much more positive and hopeful about my condition and empowered to attain a better outcome than I have in years with seeing multiple providers for the same condition.

The work Dr. West does in easing the body of its woes is wonderful. He puts parts of the body that have moved out of place through injury or emotional trauma back into place (or at least moving toward the right place), and encourages physical therapy to assist the work he does. He is a kind and caring man and a wonderful doctor.

Appointments with this provider are extremely difficult to get. I was supposed to be seen for a follow-up visit in 4 weeks; his soonest opening is in 3 months. I was referred to Dr. West for a specific form of manual therapy which he did not do on this visit.

Only because Dr. West is so hard to get in to see. 4 mth wait is not acceptable if I have a medical issue that needs attention & I was told this is what it is because he is so booked up. Really nice doctor, knowledgeable, listens, but getting into see him is difficult!

[...] Dr West is great. I know he has many other patients. So while the time with him is very well spent, I wish the session could have been maybe 15min longer.

Dr. West has been most helpful with my back issues & keeps me moving. He also went out of his way to get useful info. about ALS for my family after my mom was diagnosed [...]. Dr. West & Dr. [...] both spent extra time talking to ME about ALS & thing's to consider & follow up with for my mom - I was so impressed that they would take the time & actually care - of all the doctors we have seen in 2+ years no other doctors showed the compassion or consideration that these two did - Dr. West has kept me moving & active for 3 years and I am grateful I recommended adding more Dr. of his field -

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.
