Patient Testimonials

“Dr Westgarth was a god send to our daughter who was literally wasting away in front of eyes! Her illness didn’t just affect her, it affected the whole family. We were all on rock bottom and desperate for help. Over a number of months he treated her for her obsessive compulsive behaviour and her fear of being sick. She is now fit, healthy and acting like a normal teenager. She travels and is doing well at school. We are now just relishing being a normal family again! It was a very long 2-3 years. Don’t hesitate. Go and see him.”
