How likely are you to recommend Dr. Westerlund?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Westerlund was very patient and kind. He took time to explain my options and did not pressure me to make a quick decision. He described the surgery in detail so I would know what to expect and went over my MRI and x-rays thoroughly. I highly recommend!
