Patient Testimonials

“My teenage daughter has recently spent several months seeing Dr Westgarth to help her with what turned out to be a borderline eating disorder. Despite being in the medical profession myself, I can only say that discovering the problem at home last year was initially shattering. With no real knowledge or expertise in that field, I felt like all parents must feel… anxious, angry and at a loss as to the best way forward. However, over the last few months with the support offered by Stephen and his team, I have seen my daughter re-gain her confidence, allay her anxieties and most importantly, gain back control in her life.”
