Great Dr and staff. only one complaint, Dr Welch wants to see me in February as I am trying out a new medication. He took me to the front desk to let receptionist know, but apparently there were no spaces untill June. This does concern me as I not only have type 2 diabetes, but also Stage 3 CKD. which Dr Welch is trying so hard to stabilize.
