Dr. Byck butchered my ACL repair. I was left to suffer for 10 weeks due to incorrect hardware placement. Dr. Byck and his NP failed to notice the incorrect hardware placement on 1 wk post-operative and other x-rays taken. I was in excruciating pain, could not move the joint properly and had to walk on crutches. Dr. Byck ignored my complaints and never acknowledged his mistake. Very arrogant. Had to have two additional surgeries to fix what this guy did to me. Be aware! I don't wish what I had to go through on anyone!
Great doctor, I would definitely recommend him 5 stars. ..., Dec 19, 2012
He is very good. Knows what he is doing, very smart, and no BS. I would definitely recommend him. Is really good at both therapy and medication. It is rare to find someone who is good at both (or can do both), and he is very good.
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).
Not very helpful, wouldn't prescribe me meds that I'd been on for years..., Nov 21, 2012
As an internal medicine doctor I can see that she tries, but she's not very helpful. I was regularly seeing another doctor that worked at the same office as her and my usual PCP left so the office automatically rolled me over to her. She gave me a hard time prescribing me the same medications that I'd been on for YEARS AND YEARS and eventually just started denying me my regular medicines saying that she wanted me to get my prescriptions from different specialists every time I need a refill (I originally got these prescriptions prescribed to me BY specialists, then the specialists say to me "Everything is fine, you can get these filled by your PCP and just come back for check ups once or twice a year" Which I DO. To have to get my prescriptions filled by all the different specialists is a huge pain in the ass, especially WHEN I'VE BEEN ON THESE MEDS FOR YEARS AND YEARS. Wouldn't recommend her.
