Dr. Welsh is a very compassionate and remarkable physician. I had two lumbar/SI joint injections from Dr. Welsh. I was extremely nervous about having these injections. But he was very reassuring and explained everything he was doing and made sure I was comfortable. He put me at ease. These injections were miraculous! I feel very fortunate to be his patient.

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 without pain meds! I cannot say enough positive things, he is great and works hard to to make his patients more comfortable.

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 with regards to my work injury to my lower back. He always made time for all my questions and concerns. He went above and beyond battling the insurance co. for my treatment/pain management. TRUST HIM!
