Review of Dr. Welch

-Chicago, IL |

Dr. Welch was kind enough to see me on a day he doesn't usually see patients and determined that I didn't need surgery. Another doctor felt that I would be a great candidate for surgery, but I wasn't sure. Dr. Welch explained everything to me and it totally made sense. I have since then worked with an allergist, Dr. Saltoun, who has improved my day to day living.

Review of Dr. Welch

I thought going to Northwestern downtown I would be in very good hands with an excellent dr. The 1st time I went to Dr Welch I was impressed. He told me he could fix my problems without surgery which all of my previous drs wanted to do. I continued to get sick every 6 weeks over 6 month period of time. My last appt with him he said I can not help you anymore, you need surgery. I said I already had 4 surgeries and I am in the same position. What would you do differently. He said open up your sinu

I had another doctor who performed 2 previous surgeries for chronic mild to moderate sinusitis. The previous doctor made me much worse with severe constant pain, vertigo and infection. I came to doctor Welch who after scoping me, he immediately did diagnostic testing. Before I left I knew the infection was in my bone. I knew I'd be having another surgery soon. He performed this 3rd surgery, and it's 6mths out and it has been trouble free. I highly recommend him. Competent and friendly.

All I can say is this doctor cares. Ive had been in this hospitals cate for 30 yrs; 9 visits including emergencies. He is bar none. Staff is receptive to questions in person and by phone. Use of technology for feedback in a well measured way. I wish Dr Welch could be my primary doctor.

Dr Welch was spot on with his assessment of my situation. I would highly recommend him. My breathing improved like he said it would if I continued with my medication and if not he had a plan B in line. Thank you Dr Welch. It was a very trying time not being able to breathe. Fantastic doctor.

Review of Dr. Welch

I went to see Dr. Welch and his team because I had been experiencing chronic headaches linked to a sinus infection. The headaches had persisted and I wanted to rule out any potential sinus issues. Dr. Welch was both knowledgable and helpful. However, the Fellow that I worked with did not make it clear that performing a Nasal Endoscopy was not part of the office visit from an insurance perspective. At no point did I feel like I was aware that my insurance would be billed a surgical code.

Hi there. I'm sorry my Fellow did not inform you of this. I make it a policy to do so when I see patients first, as does the front desk when they have patients read and sign a policy. If you would giv... more
