Testimonials from patients of Dr. West

from Pam in GA March 15, 2024 for James H. West, MD

I have been a patient of Dr West for over 30 years. So long ago that I don’t remember the year, but know that his father was in the practice with him at that time. He was a great doctor also. Coincidentally, I ended up working at a “father/son” law firm for many years. Back to Dr West, he Is hands down the best doctor. So knowledgeable and takes his time explaining issues and answering… See more

Doctor West listens intently to my questions or concerns. His extensive knowledge and impressive network of colleagues make me feel that he is able to help with any issue that may develop. His open dialogue develops trust that together we will make the right health care decisions. His nurse and office staff are some of the best I have ever encountered.
However, it was his reaction… See more

from Rhonda in GA February 12, 2024 for James H. West, MD

For me, my first visit with Dr. West was the time that I knew I had found the doctor I needed and wanted. Dr. West took the time to really assess my health issues and questions and to get to know me as a patient. I always feel heard and that he and his staff really care about my well being. The time that really stands out in my mind is during the time of Covid. I was quire ill and Dr. West was… See more

from Janice in GA February 11, 2024 for James H. West, MD

Over the past year, we have had several after hours crises. One involved a trip to the emergency room. We called Dr. West while on the way and he kept us focused and reassured that all would be well. The second was when Janice contracted COVID while traveling in London. We had no idea what to do. I called his after-hours number and he answered the phone (I expected a call-back as it was… See more

from Dianne in GA January 24, 2024 for James H. West, MD

Occasionally I report a health concern/issue, via phone, to Dr. West's office. Usually the same day, he calls, either sets-up a same-day/next day appointment or calls to discuss the issue and/or prescribes an antibiotic over the phone. Via a phone call or an immediate appointment, Dr W always assures me of my concern/issue.

from Steven in GA January 22, 2024 for James H. West, MD

I moved to Atlanta in 1995 and was referred to Dr West by a friend at work. It may have been the best referral I've ever received, as Dr West, and at first his father, have been my primary care physician for nearly all of the years since. I only left his practice for a couple of years when he first joined the MDVIP concierge service, due to out-of-pocket cost concerns. It didn't… See more

I have been a patient of Dr. James West for over 25 years. Throughout those years, I have also experienced many many other doctors and observed how each one in his/her own way interacts with patients. Yet, in all of these years, never have I had the privilege of being treated by a doctor like Dr. West. His people skills and personality make him stand out above all the others. During our visits… See more
