It Doesn't Get Better Than This - Great Primary Care Doc..., Feb 7, 2013
Unbelievable find. In this day and age its amazing that a doctor like this one exists - one who actually spends TIME with you. I came away feeling like he actually cared about me and not that I was just one of thousands of patients he sees. He made the visit a pleasant experience... and I'm one of those people who hates to go the doctor. With Dr. Don, I can't wait to go back. He's fun just to shoot the breeze with, and even better is the fact that you come away confident that he knows what he's doing. And the staff is great. A fantastic doc. Highly recommended.
ALWAYS IN PAIN. ALWAYS IN PAIN. ALWAYS IN PAIN. ALWAYS!..., Dec 21, 2012
tuvi mendel NEVER diagnosed a painful, debilitating post op staph infection. Leaving me with considerable damage and ongoing pain.
I pleaded with him that it had to be infected. He insisted repeatedly it was not.............It WAS.
Why tuvi, why!!!!
The symptoms were SO obvious.
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).
