I love sharing deer hunting stories with Dr. West; he takes the time to talk.

Dr. West is above and beyond as my health care giver. I have been his patient and friend for 25 years plus. He listens, he demonstrates concern and will go to great lengths to ensure I have the BEST health care he can provide.
He helped me walk through the death of my husband 5 years ago and was there to assist me in making hard decisions. When he feels certain medication is needed… See more

I would not be here if it wasn't for my doctor. He helped me to quit smoking, discovered a lump in my breast, which was diagnosed as breast cancer, and was supportive when I was experiencing stress related illnesses during a difficult time when my mother was dying a slow death. He spends time with me,listens and asks questions with no rushed responses. I have a comfortable feeling… See more

from Mike in GA February 9, 2014 for James H. West, MD

Dr. West has been both my friend and my doctor for years. He has always been a caring physician, but MDVIP has allowed him to practice medicine the way it should be. At every visit, he takes the time to explain what is going on with my health and we discuss my treatment plan in detail. I have shared my experiences with friends, family, and coworkers and some of them has signed up to see Dr.… See more

from Jack in GA February 9, 2014 for James H. West, MD

I have been seeing Dr. West since we moved to Atlanta in 1991. In 1995 I came down with a serious case of pneumonia and basically lost 5 days of my life that I don't even remember. Dr. West was there for me every step of the way. He saved my life.
Now, i actually enjoy seeing him. He has a great personality and always has time for me regardless of the issue I want to discuss.… See more

from Richard in GA February 8, 2014 for James H. West, MD

Dr. West, for the past 23+ years you have been there for us from Dick's heart attack, silly mouth drooling that turned into a nightmare and all the other problems that have come up many due to age.
You have been available to us night's and weekends when Pam had an adverse reaction to discontinuing medication to the kidney stone ordeal and her arthritis problems.
We trust… See more

from Alice in GA February 8, 2014 for James H. West, MD

Dr.West is a blessing in my life. It gives me peace of mind to know that he is available to me as my primary care physician. He is patient, understanding, knowledgeable and I know that I can depend on him if/ when I need him.
It is sad that the national medical situation is so undependable that Dr. West found it necessary to limit his patients numbers to a program like MDVP. But I… See more
