Experience
Dr. Lauren West has more than 30 years of experience in emergency medicine and still appreciates the diversity and challenges in the emergency department.
Philosophy
In the Emergency Department, we're a team dedicated to taking care of each patient. We treat life threatening conditions such as heart attacks and pneumonia, as well as potentially life changing conditions like a broken wrist. We gather information from our patients and their families about the medical problem at hand and collaborate with all of the EvergreenHealth resources to come up with a best plan for each individual patient.
Personal Information
My interest in medicine germinated from an adult who encouraged me at a time when it wasn't common for women to choose medicine as a career. My spirit to work hard comes from my midwest parents. Thanks to my second major in college ? anthropology ? I enjoy people from all cultures. My husband and I enjoy working out to stay young at heart, and love spending time at our small cabin on a remote island in the South Puget Sound during the summer. Our Labrador retrievers add humor and love to everything.
