Patient Comments (3)
in Allentown, PA |
I just completed my fifth anniversary exam for my stent procedure to correct a 5 plus cm triple A aneurism. Without a doubt, Dr. Welkie performed a life saving procedure for which I shall be eternally grateful. In each of the five ensuing years. Dr Welkie ordered the necessary tests to insure the stent was performing as intended. He personally met with me at length, answered all questions, was most reassuring. If this rating scoring was 10 instead of 5, I would rate Dr. Wilkie an 11! .
