    I have no problem getting appointments. He is very professional. Sometimes people expect miracles when you visit doctors. Dr. Wells tells you like it is.

    My 94 year old grandfather saw him for pain on his bottom. Dr.Wells told him "to stand more". My grandfather uses a walker due to weakness in his legs. He can't walk long distances or stand for long periods. This was explained to Dr. who told him, "you need to be on your feet more" & rushed him out of the office. He did not treat the issue at all, which we found out to be a stage 2 pressure ulcer. Dr. Wells didnt help at all & neglected the issue which is now worse due to his lack of care.
