Dr. Welshofer spent less than 15 minutes with me and was extremely unreceptive to my concerns. When telling him my symptoms and concerns he was short with me and made me feel like an idiot. I am extremely disappointed in my appointment with him.

This was my first visit with Dr. Welshofer. I was able to see him prior to my appointed time due to an earlier cancellation. I found Dr. Welshofer to be very personable, patient oriented and he spoke "English" rather than medical jargon. I have a follow up appointment in a couple of weeks and look forward to working with Dr. Welshofer to resolve my medical problem. He is an extraordinary doctor.

Dr. Welshofer is one of the best doctors I have seen. He was very thorough in his treatment of me. He reviewed my exams and MRIs in detail, both comprehensive and comprehensible manner. He took an inordinate amount of time explaining my condition. His position to to provide alternative treatments to surgery. However, in my case, he was truthful in recommending surgery as I had exhausted these treatments. I found him to be patient-centered and extremely caring. I recommend him highly.
