He is a very kind compassionate doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been able reduced my back pain to the point I fell almost normal. I have struggled everyday with dibilitating back pain after a back surgery from a different doctor. Dr. Welsh has reduced the pain tremendously...more

He was my treating physician for over 13 years. He would still be my Dr. if my employer hadn't changed insurance co. and he was no longer in network. I continued seeing him even after moving from the Bay Area to Las Vegas, NV - over 1000 miles, that is how much I trusted his opinions and skills...more
