Recent Patient Testimonials

“I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr Stephen Westgarth without hesitation. My 6 year-old daughter was diagnosed with Selective Mutism which requires a very delicate approach, and I am happy to say that after 18 months in Dr Westgarth’s care she has now been discharged and is talking freely in all situations.

“During our first consultation my daughter spoke in front of Stephen, although not directly to him – at the time this was a feat in itself, and speaks volumes about the man beyond his role as a doctor. From that point on I was sure that we were in very good hands. His manner was calm, approachable, structured and determined. He was absolutely meticulous in his approach to treating my daughter and we will never be able to thank him enough.”
