I have seen several psychiatrists over the last 20 years. Dr. Welsh has been the most patient and compassionate psychiatrist I have worked with. With his help I am now happier and more stable than I have ever been.

Distant and cold. Seems overly cautious and never dares to think outside of the box.

Dr Welsh is the ONLY psychiatrist I have had who works with me and listens without pre-judgement. Often I will inquire on new meds and he takes time to explain if/why I should consider vs just dismissing me. I trust him with no reserve regarding my mental and sometimes physical well being
