    Hi folks - I got a colonoscopy from Dr. Welker. Great job - very kind and professional. Also, since I can handle pain using meditation and breath control he let me do without anesthetic ((he definitely does NOT recommended that!l)) plus he was quite clear with me about up-front prep. His follow up was great too. Highly recommended! :)
