The entire staff was amazing, however, I must really comment on Dr. Welch. The time he took to speak with both my husband and myself during our respective appointments was amazing! He explained his philosophy to us (with which we agreed with) and took time to discuss our history, symptoms, concerns and expectations moving forward. I have been to many a doctor and even other endocrinologists but NONE have shown the care or compassion to help like Dr. Welch had during our visit. We did not feel rushed, and feel that he really cares and wants to help! Everything that you would hope to find in a physician but rarely do these days. THANK YOU Dr. Welch for being there to help us understand and taking time to discuss the true matters of our concerns!
