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.

I've been around the world twice, to 3 axle greasings, 2 hog callings and 5 rodeos -- this is the best physician of any specialty I have ever met. You know once he puts that cold stethescope on you that everything is going to be just fine.
