Reviews From Our Happy Patients

As a surgical rep, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Westervelt in the OR on many occasions. I was always impressed with his bedside manner pre, peri and post operatively. It’s abundantly clear that he’s a surgeon who truly cares about the patients he serves, employing innovative techniques that result in less post op pain. My Inguinal hernia repair was perfect. Very little pain, fast recovery and excellent communication throughout. Highly recommend this very talented surgeon.

Chad S.

Kind and caring professional, I highly recommend Dr. Westerville. Office staff was friendly and I was seen on time. Surgery took place the same week as my appointment and everything went well. Thank you.

Donna H.

Dr. Westervelt is a truly remarkable and talented surgeon! Amazing bedside manner, uses innovative techniques and technology leading to faster recovery and clearly cares about the patients he serves. I couldn’t be happier that I chose him to repair my inguinal hernia. My recovery was fast with minimal pain and the one small incision in my belly button will leave no scar! I cannot recommend him more, he is the best!

Kay G.

This Doctor is absolutely amazing. Not only is he kind caring and compassionate but he truly cares about his patients My husband had been in extreme pain from a botched hernia operation for 6 years unable to get anyone to listen to or believe him Dr Westervelt not only listened, he reassured us that he could and would help us He operated a week ago and now my husband can once again have a normal life I don’t know what we would have done without him He keeps the “care” in healthcare AWESOME DR!
