Incredible neurosurgeon. Caring. Compassionate. Knows his stuff!!!
in Southlake, TX |
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.
