    Untrustworthy, will dodge you when he doesn't know what to do, untrustworthy, never explained anything always left in the dark, was missing a lot, say one thing one day and the next something else, rude, team rude and Untrustworthy to the highest extreme. You can not trust anyone affiliated with him, let's residents do his work unsupervised, untrustworthy, the poster child of bad medical procedures and there is 0 transparency in him and his entire team. Bottom line Untrustworthy!!! Lies alot

    We were very shocked to find out everything wrong with our son. He never showed any signs. Dr. Wellons helps us through everything and makes us feel comfortable. His staff is great. Expecially Hailey. She comes in after him and makes you feel better about things. We have a long road ahead of us and they always answer our questions no matter how many I ask or how long it takes. I couldn't ask for a better Doctor!
