To be completely honest; when your child is Special Needs, it's difficult to get to the bottom of exactly what's wrong with your child. Sure, she has behavioral issues. That comes with ASD; but when your child has a cold (typical or not), you worry a bit more. Dr. West gave me the best information in ever in aiding my child back to health! The very next day was a dramatic change in my daughters cold for the better! It was very niticible and I want to thank him so very much for how kind, attentive and informative he was with my daughter as well as my mother and I. We felt very comfortable with Dr. West and would definitely recommend him to other parents in our community for his guidance in pediatric health care. If my daughter did not already have her PCP, Dr. West would definitely be my choice to oversee the care of my daughter! Thank you Dr. West!

His follow-up instructions were so thorough and spent extra time showing me how to suction my newborn's nose. It gave me more confidence as a new mom.
