I went to Dr. Wellons at Newnan Vascular to check my fistula. I had issues and was told from my dialysis clinic that he was good. Wrong, He made my symptoms worse. After I saw him my arm became contracted and tingles. It hurts all the time in my hand. I called them back to tell them this and no one called me back for over a week until I call again. This crazy. He don't care just tried to make excuse and say it was that way before. No it wasn't. He is nice but doesn't know what he is doing
