Interests

Medical Interests

I love to empower people in all stages of life to find health and success. I enjoy caring for women throughout pregnancy and delivery by finding the most natural and safe methods possible for each individual. I enjoy caring for children, from infancy through adolescence, including childhood wellness visits, emergency care, colds, scratches, bumps and growing pains.

Caring for families—children, their parents and grandparents—provides a unique opportunity to understand and help each person make good health choices. I appreciate the challenges of working with chronic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity and heart disease. I enjoy helping those who struggle with these conditions become healthier, happier individuals, not defined or constrained by their diseases.

Helping patients of all ages, from birth through the golden years, enjoy and live life to the fullest is my goal.

Personal Interests

I enjoy being outdoors. Mountain biking, hiking, backpacking and running. During the winter I recently learned how to snowboard and cross country sky. I enjoy planning ways to create community and get people together.

The front desk staff were polite and kind, as was the MA that took me back to room me. Dr. Westermeyer is always thoughtful and patient. I truly appreciate that, when I have concerns, she listens and doesn't dismiss what I'm saying. I would recommend her to any of my family or friends.

I thought Dr. Westermeyer was INCREDIBLE! I switched doctors because my last one was just terrible and I wanted someone who would listen to me. She went out of her way to help me understand each answer/suggestion she was giving me, even to the point where she drew me pictures to help me understand 100%. She was extremely professional and made me feel so comfortable, I loved her!
