Eric West D.O.


My Medical Specialty: Pediatrics
male | Speaks: English, Spanish

My name is Dr. Eric West. I’m a pediatrician with Children’s Physician’s at Spring Valley.

How has being a father shaped you as a pediatrician?

Having four kids has helped me probably recognize how much love and care parents have for their kids, similar to what I have. I would expect no less of a doctor of my own kids to want to treat them and help them be happy and well and to listen to the parents too. I’ve had my own concerns about my kids at times and gone to the doctor and been appreciative of their time and effort and listening. So, I want to mirror that too.

In which area do you have the most experience?

I’ve really honed in on development and meeting those developmental milestones. I have a five-year-old son with autism and so I’ve taken a lot of interest in helping kids who may have some speech delay or some concerns for autism, really reach their potential and find the resources that are needed so that they can do their best.

How has being bilingual helped you as a pediatrician?

Being able to speak directly with my patients and to listen to them directly and to help them know that I understand their unique needs in their language. This helps to bring a little bit of extra comfort. It allows them to be able to ask the questions that they know in their mind they want to ask but aren’t quite sure if they’d be heard.
