Horrid doctor do not go to her. Don't know who gave her a license...., May 5, 2013
This doctor is a joke, she doesn't care about your health. Also, she doesn't seem to really listen to you when you talk. Truthfully I felt very uncomfortable with her and could't wait to get out. How did she get her license?
Google "Complaints" on this MD before making an appointment for a procedure..., Feb 10, 2013
Before selecting any doctor, please do your due diligence and google complaints on whomever is giving you a consultation before you make an appointment or give them your money for any procedure,
even if they tell you that they invented the procedure you are looking to have done, and/or that they teach it internationally and that you need look no further for the best person to do the job. ALWAYS LOOK FURTHER WHEN SOMEONE TELLS YOU THIS.
I wish I had.
Excellent psychiatrist-great care without over-medicating..., Jan 19, 2013
Excellent psychiatrist. Provides great care without over-medicating. I worked with a few psychiatrists before her that kept adding medications. She reduced the number of medications I take and I feel much better.
avoid at all costs, don't make the same mistake, i left in tears and irate..., Dec 13, 2012
I would not suggest doctor Joseph Hooper to anybody. I have never taken the time to write a review on a product or services of any kind before, but he will treat you with such disdain that I hope that no one ever has to suffer his treatment. He has only his experiences to base his life "opinions" on and if you are not someone with simple problems he has dealt with before, then you are wrong in his eyes and he will make a point to tell you. If you try and discuss your issues with him, he will tell you that you are just seeking special attention, that you are faking and he will talk down to you as if you were his child. If you try and make any retorts to his insults, he will then proceed to mumble insults under his breath right in front of you as if you are too stupid to know what he is doing. If you want to leave your doctor in tears or livid with anger, then by all means, go to him, but if you wanted to be treated with respect from your "care giver", then save yourself the grief and time and seek a different doctor. He told me that my psychiatric symptoms weren't real and upon realizing that I did need proper help, he very abrasively asked if I was going to kill myself and then told me I could find another doctor. That being said, I was always able to get either same day or next day appointments anytime I called and I can only assume, after reading similar reviews, that he just doesn't hold on to any of his patients and therefore his schedule is always open.
Dr. West Makes Me Laugh...Even during "that" exam and also makes me feel heard. ..., Nov 26, 2012
I've been seeing Dr. West since 2000. I had to move to L.A. for two years and one of my regrets was having to give up Dr. West. As soon as I moved back to Seattle I immediately signed up to see him. I even talked my husband to see him (his PCP before that was Harborview Emergency). Dr. West spends as much time with you as is necessary. However, the thing that impressed me the most and why I have remained so loyal is that Dr. West isn't a "easy fix" kind of guy. His first instinct isn't pills but exercise, proper diet, mental health, etc. However, if medication is necessary he isn't afraid to prescribe it. The best thing I can say about him is that I've sent him several patients over the years and they all equally sing his praises. (FYI - He is now located in Edmonds at the Edmonds Family Clinic).
