Meet Dr. Kortney West

Kortney West, M.D. is a board certified pediatrician. She was raised in Lafayette and was an honors graduate of St. Thomas More High School. Dr. West then graduated from Louisiana State University, with honors, where she was a proud member of Kappa Delta sorority. She went on to attend LSU’s medical school in Shreveport, Louisiana, and, thereafter, completed her pediatric residency in Dallas, Texas, at the University of Texas - Southwest, which was ranked by U.S. World and News as one of the top twenty-five pediatric residency programs in the country. 

After residency, Dr. West worked for a pediatric clinic in Gonzales, Louisiana before opening a concierge pediatric medical practice serving the greater Baton Rouge area. When work relocated her husband from Louisiana to Pennsylvania, Dr. West closed West Pediatrics in order to move northward with her family. She will join Reading Pediatrics beginning in January of 2019 as the clinic’s 15th pediatrician.

As a true Louisianan, Dr. West loves Baton Rouge and the LSU Tigers. Dr. West can cook a gumbo worthy of her Lafayette roots and loves to travel the world. As a mother of three, Dr. West understands the fears and stresses of being a parent and trying to do everything else life requires at the same time. Dr. West wants to provide holistic medical treatment and guidance in a way that lessens those fears and stresses as much as possible. She wants to truly know you and your children. Most importantly, she wants to be there for your family.
