Does not talk down to me or make me feel terrible for not being a very good patient on medication and such. Always looking for ways for me to improve even when I have set backs.

Dr. Welch is very professional yet most caring and cordial. I have been very pleased with him for ten years and now he has a support staff that he was sorely lacking before his group affiliated with Baylor.
