Dr. Welch is so sweet and understanding. She has a great bedside manner.Jun 20,2016
I had a very positive experience from start to end. I actually incorrectly noted my appt time and arrived an hour late. the staff, nurse and Dr. Welch were very helpful in allowing me the opportunity to step into a missed appointment that coincidentally at the time I thought was my slot. I waited a few minutes and had a very good visit. Dr. Welch and the staff are professional, friendly and instill confidence that I am reviving good care in an efficient window of time.Jun 17,2016
I have had health problems since birth and I'm due to this I've seen way too many doctors through the years; Dr. Welch is hands down the best Provider I have ever encountered. Her knowledge, intuition, and willingness to dig into matters has made a great difference in my care. If it was not for her, I would not be improving so well; she has found things Noone else has ever even thought of. I consider this beautiful lady to be a blessing and will forever remember her as The One who made the difference in my health. Although I still lack confidence and trust in "Medical Professionals", I I do not have those issues with Dr. Welch. She has more than earned my respect, trust, and confidence. Greatest doctor I've ever met. Period.Apr 11,2016
