Testimonials from patients of Dr. West

from Loreen in GA March 23, 2020 for James H. West, MD

Dr. West is more than a wonderful diagnostician and caregiver - he's a person that enriches others. He's been my PCP for over 20 years and has been there for all the regular care and was the central reassuring part of my care team through beast cancer treatment. He has a fantastic team as well - so responsive and truly caring. Not just in this scary pandemic time, but always...I… See more

from Betty in GA March 19, 2020 for James H. West, MD

In October I received a "possible" cancer diagnosis, so I called Dr, West. He saw me within an hour and spent a good amount of time calming me (and my husband), and explaining what would happen next. He encouraged us to not fight battles and scenarios that we didn't know yet, but take it one step at a time. We felt so much better after we saw him, because we knew he would be… See more

My husband has advanced dementia and also 15 months ago his bad knees gave out and he began to fall. This of course changed our lives completely. We now use a lift to get him out of bed and also into a car. You can imagine the difficulty i face in getting him to a doctor.
Knowing our situation, Dr West has come to our home to check on my husband and on other occasions has sent his nurse… See more

Dr. West has always been there for us through many trying times. We thank him for all of his expertise and compassion.

from Eddie in GA March 11, 2020 for James H. West, MD

Dr West is like family. I’ve known him long before he became a Dr. He is the Dr that found my Thymoma and saved my life. I put my life in his hands and was the perfect patient. It took a while but we won the battle and I owe it all to him and his thoughtful medical approach.

from Trip in SC March 11, 2020 for James H. West, MD

Dr. West is very attentive and responsive to my needs. Given our long history he listens to me and my self diagnosis and confirms or advises alternative response. I am most appreciative of his response to texts or calls given I now live more than 125 miles away. I trust him and value his counsel.

from Robyn in GA March 10, 2020 for James H. West, MD

My family and I have been patients of Dr. James West for more than 15 years. There is no better care to anywhere else? Dr. West is highly knowledgeable, skilled and approachable. He always has time for our concerns and makes sure we are taken well care of, whether that is within his practice or with specialists. Not only do we trust him completely, we enjoy his company.

Dr. James West is a one in a million physician that truly cares about his patients. He has been our primary doctor since 1993. We moved from Georgia to North Carolina 20 years ago and travel to Atlanta for our doctor! Without his care and knowledge, my wife may not have been here to celebrate our 35th anniversary in July. He truly listens and knows his patients. How do you thank someone… See more
