CURRENTLY ACCEPTING PATIENTS
Dr. West was caring and helpful. She knew exactly what I could take while on chemotherapy and also what would negatively interact with my treatment. She ordered chemosensitivity tests which helped guide treatment that impressed my cancer doctor. She even got on the phone with my oncologist and worked with him to coordinate ny care. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
