There is absolutely nobody else in the world that I would trust more. She does her homework and answers my questions patiently and with information that demonstrate that she is constantly learning more about folks with similar conditions/concerns.Dec 20,2016
If you are speaking of Dr. Welch, she is simply the best. So kind and concerned, spends as much time as necessary, no rushing to get you through, and explains everything in simple language we can understand. She is especially good with my husband, who is old and a bit hard to handle at times. He thinks the sun rose with Dr. Welch, however, and does whatever she says.Nov 14,2016
