Dr. Welsh is a caring doctor that listens carefully to your needs. Unlike some doctors that talk to while having their hand in the door knob, you get ample attention during your visit. He greets you will a happy disposition and is no nonsense in his work. I recommended him to family and friends and all thank me later after seeing him.
