Dr. Wellford immediately connects with his patients and listens to them. He respects their thoughts and opinions and values their input. He is able to communicate complex information in a very informative manner. He is extremely responsive to patients needs. He has responded to my texts and calls within minutes. When there was ever a concern, he worked me into his schedule. He referred me to another specialist in ensure that I received the best support for my serious condition. He constantly follows up with me about my care. He is a genuinely classy gentleman who is a truly skilled and talented physician. I could not possibly ask for a better cardiologist to treat me. Through his treatment of me over the past five years, I have been blessed to get to know how truly outstanding he is. I claim him as a great friend!

Dr Wellford is very professional and has a special way with Patients. He quickly determines the problem, orders only appropriate test and make his determination based upon best available evidence of the patients situation. Sometime medical terms are difficult to understand and would recommend he tell the patient in laymen terms.
