Patient Testimonials

“Coming to see Dr Westgarth was a very positive experience for us. He immediately established a good relationship with my son who was experiencing a number of difficulties at the time. With Dr Westgarth’s help and guidance my son is now making excellent progress both at school and at home and we’re delighted with this positive outcome.”
