I’ve been seeing Dr. Welker as has my family for 35 years. He’s the best! Bedside manner, straight forward. Helped me beat Tonsil Cancer in 2011

Review for Dr. Chatta

Zero bedside manner. Doesnt explain conditions. No warning before putting me under. Feels like hes rushing. At least five people were behind me waiting for colonoscopies. Waited 2 hours to be sedated.
