What People Say About Dr. Babu Welch, MD

I found him not to be a good listener to know the patients past history nor communication what the future would hold. I found out right before the surgery that he was going to do the surgery and I met him for the first time after the surgery. It has been 2 months after the surgery and my loved one is worse off then before the surgery.

I was referred to Dr. Welch because I had an unruptured brain aneurysm. He spent almost 2 hours with us during the initial consultation discussing all options. I decided to go with clipping the aneurysm with a craniotomy. The surgery went well, Zale Lipshy and staff of the neurology department were top notch, and Dr. Welch's caring bedside manner, along with his experience and knowledge were the reasons that I would recommend him and Zale Lipshy Hospital to anyone with brain issues.
