It was my first visit with her and I found her to be knowledgeable, kind and caring and an excellent listener. She also seemed non-judgemental and open to trying different approaches to solving a problem. I look forward to working with her in the future.

Dr Westermeyer is fantastic! As a provider, I would recommend her to everyone! The support staff, however, leaves something to be desired. As a patient it feels like I'm just a medical record number. From being left in an exam room for 30-45 minutes before anyone noticed I was still there & waiting; to waiting several weeks for a prescription perauth yo be dealt with & being told by my pharmacy/insurance company that my preachy was denied because my doctors office failed to return the insurance company's phone calls regarding questions about said preauth. Love the doctor, frustrated with the office she works in.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Westermeyer - this was sort of a meet and greet. I was very unhappy with my previous provider and needed a change. After talking to Dr. Westermeyer, I was very pleased that she listened to me and seemed to want to have a good working relationship with me - although, I seldom see a doctor, I would like it to be a good experience.

Dr. Westermeyer is so easy to talk to and listens intently to all your health concerns. I like that she walks you through her thought process as she decides the best way to address each concern and even if it will take a little trial and error, you fully understand the whole plan of attack when you leave.

she is a good GP, but my history showed this same symptoms several years ago, which was identified by a GI specialist. I think rather than the myriad of lab tests they performed, I should have been referred to a specialist. this colitis was in my history as well as the prescription that cured me. my doc was thorough but Again, I believe I should have been referred, the evidence was in my records.

The front desk staff were polite and kind, as was the MA that took me back to room me. Dr. Westermeyer is always thoughtful and patient. I truly appreciate that, when I have concerns, she listens and doesn't dismiss what I'm saying. I would recommend her to any of my family or friends.
