[...] had to postpone seeing a doctor about heart related symptoms for about 3 months while I waited to see Dr. Westhuizen because he was the only one taking patients and he was booked that far out for new patients. When I finally got to see Dr. Westhuizen, he was very professional and gave me the level of care I expected and needed. [...] Glad we were able to see him and hope he works out [...].

Dr. Westhusing was very attentive and thoughtful about my condition. My Primary Care Physician was on vacation when I was in pain and needed some help.

I am very grateful for the time he spent with me and got me on my way to getting to the bottom of my problem.

I just started with Dr. Westhusing. So far so good!
 

04/03/2019
Appointment was made approximately two months prior to first visit with Dr. Westhousing. While making appointment, it was explained that my Senior Care Provider was leaving her practice and I wanted to establish a new Primary Care Provider. After checking in for first appointment, completing the medical history forms, Dr. Westhousing walked into the examination room and abruptly stated that he did not accept Geriatric patients and cancelled the appointment. This is the most humiliating and poorly handled experience I have ever had in over for years with Kadlec Hospital and its providers for my entire family.
100

04/02/2019
Dr Westhusing always provides excellent skill and care!
100

04/02/2019
This provider has been our primary care physician for many years. Our satisfaction led us to follow him when he moved from [...] to Kadlec. He has always provided the utmost concern and care for our well being. Highly recommend him.

After being treated poorly at a different clinic, Dr Westhusing is a blessing. He listened to me and scheduled tests to find out what is wrong. Thank You!
100

03/12/2019
I have followed Dr.Westhushing from previous offices to Kadlec Clinic and am glad he stayed in the Tri-Cities I was disappointed to think I would have to find a different physician if I would have had to. Thank goodness I got to stay with him. It took a long time to get my first appointment at your clinic. Hopefully now it will be easier to get in when needed

He is very thorough and listen to your problems - I have used him while he was at Lourdes, which is close to my home, but I elected to keep going to him, rather than stay with a nearer hospital.
