Dr Westervelt is amazing! I've been going to him since 2018. He does an amazing job with surgeries and is an artist with making scars look beautiful. He is very diligent and compassionate towards his patients with their health issShow moreues, and makes sure you heal well. If you have any issues, he takes his time to find out what might be going wrong, refers you to the right person to help, or does what he can to ensure you are healing properly. I wouldn't go to anyone else! And definitely recommend him

Brandee W • November 20, 2020

Dr. Westervelt and his staff have been wonderful. I am new to the area, but suddenly required surgery on a tight (non-emergency) schedule. His staff helped me make sure I could get all of my pre-op testing work done in a timely Show moremanner so I could get on the surgical schedule. After-surgery was also handled well. Everyone is so kind and helpful. If you tend to be fairly active, make sure you ask dr for clear instructions on what you are allowed to do/not do. Bottom line--you can't do much!

Kenneth D • March 05, 2024

Dr. Westervelt Is just a good human. He’s attentive and very much cares about his patients. He was very well liked by the nursing staff at the hospital, which was very telling since surgeons tend to have slight egos. Not the case here. Dr. Westervelt and his staff are terrific. I’m so happy to have met him. He has given me my life back and I will be forever grateful.
