Care philosophy

Dr. Westerband believes in the importance of educating his patients and their families on disease processes and offering various treatment options; his patients’ feedback is heard and highly valued. He knows that such interaction reduces fear and anxiety and leads to improved patient satisfaction and better outcomes. He understands that his patients’ needs include not only the resolution of their vascular problems but also any related emotional and social health concerns. He answers questions thoroughly yet with simplicity, guiding them with compassion to their very best plan of care.
