Dr. West went into a lot of detail and speculation, I had to clarify multiple times if he was suggesting my son needed what he was talking about or if he was trying to educate me. It was almost like he was thinking out loud but he doesn't realize mom and dad's can't follow a train of thought they 1. don't understand and 2. is frightening.

dr west had no bed side manner and we had to tell multiple people that a heart murmur ran in the family. He and the resident were talking while I was trying to get an explanation as to what was wrong with my son.

very thorough and attentive. happy to answer any questions and explain things in a way myself and son could understand. we're genuinely interested in knowing my history so that we could properly care for my son.
