Did my first knee arthroscopy a decade or more ago. The surgery was fine but the anesthetist at NYGH was so full of herself. I found Dr. West to be very arrogant at follow up when I asked a sincere and reasonable question about exercise. He responded with a long "anecdote" that ended by telling me to push away from the table. When I had surgery on other knee four years later my GP recommended Dr Dipasquali at Trillium and it was well Worth the trek! Healing was even more pain free and faster than surgery with Dr. West and less scarring. He was a very pleasant doctor.
