A great doctor - very through and meticulous in his examination. I see the doctor every six months - I have had skin cancer removed five times via Mohs surgery. I take dermatology very seriously and I only go to the best Dermatologist- Dr Welsh.

I've been a patient of Dr. Welsh for several years. I think he's fantastic. He's always on time, and never a long wait in the office. He's prompt, efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable. He takes time to respond to any questions. The only problem is that he's so busy, you need to schedule appointments well in advance. I've tried another dermatologist and came back to Dr. Welsh because I think he's the best.
