Please update your records on Dr. Stanley T. West in New York City to reflect his considerable malpractice history. I've been looking for a skilled surgeon to remove my fibroids, and I went to see Dr. Stanley T. West because of his book, "The Hysterectomy Hoax." During my consultation with Dr. West, he was nice enough, but I decided not to use him as a surgeon. I'm so glad I made that decision. Based on patient reviews on the web, I was led to believe Dr. West has an outstanding record. But that couldn't be further from the truth. Recently, I Googled him again and his malpractice history came up. Dr. West had eight malpractice settlements and one, detailed in the NY Post article link below, was a 1.6 million settlement for the death of a 49 year old woman whose fibroids he removed: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/regional/item_m4Wys1UmVNS69hBHsf0sVO
