He listens to what you have to say before offering any opinions. Goes through all treatment options lists the pros and cons and thoroughly answers any questions you might have about them. If you have done some reading in the internet about a certain drug or treatment he will explain why he might not go that direction based upon your condition based upon is professional experience.

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
