Patient Testimonials

  • Dr. West and staff are first rate. Dr West has stayed right on top of my recovery from a recent lumbar fusion. I was worried about the procedure and had a lot of questions. Dr. West patiently took all the time I needed and answered all my questions. Going into surgery I had total confidence. It only gets better.

  • Dr. West is an exceptional surgeon. I had terrible leg pain in both legs, and numb hot feet all the time. I was in such terrible pain that I wondered if I could survive another day. Dr West’s helpful, and kind staff got me in and took care of me asap. I have nothing but praises for this fine doctor and his office staff. I would refer anyone with back pain to Dr. West.

  • I was told for years my back issues could not be fixed. After contracting sepsis that settled in my lower spine, an already troublesome problem became unattainable. Dr. West is kind, listens, thorough, and an extremely skilled surgeon. Dr West is not quick to recommend surgery. It is only after other options are explored. However, once he does, goes through that option. His skill is nothing short of amazing. I am currently 12 weeks out of surgery and 95% pain free. This includes pain that I have been dealing with for 20+ years. I have a life back that I did not dare believe was possible. Dr West's Nurse Practitioners are knowledgeable and available. When I did hit a bump in the road, he did everything possible to ensure it was dealt with. Dr. West's staff are kind and work well together. The office is efficient and friendly. You feel valued as a person here, cared for, and receive highly skilled care.

  • He is the best because of his experience. He did the surgery on my neck immediately. If not I would have been paralyzed.

  • I came to Dr. West as a disabled veteran looking for pain relief from my bacterial sciatica. This means both sides of my back nerves were crippling me. I have had 2 previous surgeries by military neurosurgeons with very little progress. Dr. West put new discs and fusion screws in my vertebral column and I had relief the very same day after the surgery. I am 2 weeks post surgery and I feel 80% better and looking forward to a life that I can enjoy. Dr. West and NP Rob are very caring, compassionate, methodical, and for a great surgical team. The whole medical staff provided a very accommodating and flexible schedule for me. I am forever grateful for their care.

  • Dr. West was helpful, kind and extremely thorough. He answered all of my questions and was able to assist me in moving forward with proper care. His staff was also fantastic! I would recommend him over and over. If you need any kind of back surgery and live in this area, he's definitely the guy to go to.

  • Dear Paula,

    Last Wednesday, when I needed it most, you went to bat for me to schedule a surgery for the following day instead of three weeks out. You had just met me, but you still extended yourself with such kindness. I will long remember this and hopefully I can give a life-changing moment to someone as you did to me.

    I have been 100% pain free since coming out of anesthesia.

  • Dr. West and staff,

    You will never know how much your kindness and your willingness to treat my husband in an urgent manner has meant to us. Every one of you have been willing to go the extra mile. Dr. West is not only a very skilled doctor, but he has a HEART. Our treatment has been nothing but amazing. Thank you.

  • I was a new patient in a lot of pain when I contacted St. George Orthopedic Spine. I had called other doctors offices to see if I could get in for a diagnosis and I was told that they were scheduled out 4-6 months, but I could be put on a waiting list. From my very first phone call to Dr. Wests’ office, I was listened to and the receptionist made room in their schedule to see me within 5 days. It gave me hope and from that very visit, I felt like they cared about me and my condition. I was treated like a person and not just another procedure. Dr. West had compassion and I quickly gained confidence and trust with his technical decisions and professional expertise associated with my back. The entire staff was professional, and I felt they cared that I had a good outcome. I really feel fortunate to be one of their patients. My pain is gone, and my future is bright.

  • Dr. West and Robert,

    Thank you for the care and surgical knowledge regarding my back surgery. I am so pleased with the surgery! The recovery is just like you said it would be. Every question I asked such as “when will a be able to (whatever). . .” was absolutely accurate. Thank you so much!

  • Dr. West has changed my life! I came to him with a herniated disc in my back and, after seeing him, realized I needed surgery. His staff worked wonders with helping me with my insurance and was so kind and compassionate. Dr. West is amazing and now I am pain free!!

  • I had spondylolisthesis which resulted in a sciatic pain that prohibited my walking and playing pickleball. After surgery last September, I was able to play pickleball every day and golf as well. I am cured thanks to Dr. West!

    - Pat Bacon
  • After 20-plus years of pain, I have my life back… Thanks to Dr. West! It has been about 11 months since my surgery. I am walking, hiking, and working out. I ran/walked a 10k trail race and have even taken up archery! Dr. West and his staff made me feel comfortable and confident that I was making the right decision. I haven’t regretted it for a single moment. Not only has my life improved immeasurably, I have some wonderful new friends.
