He is very knowledgeable about my condition and explained all of my treatment options in detail. He is very caring and optimistic and gave me hope when no other doctor could. Best doctor that I have been to in Indy.

Been living with chronic pain for over 10 years I got a referral to Dr Wellington late 2015 I had no trust because I have been to every spine clinic back specialist in Indy, so I went in to his office with a bad attitude thinking what can he do that no other doctor have done. He ask me if I wanted to take a trail to see if the pain pump will be a good fit for me I wasn't up for it, to fast forward the story I got my pain pump May 17 it was the best decision I have ever made

Awesome Dr.,great bed side manner ,truly cares .frequently over booked ,because he cares and wants to help as many patience as possible in a limited time. Often you will see Dr. Wellington running between patience ,no kidding. A bit of a wait but well worth it.

Dr. Wellington takes his time during the appointments to listen and address the patient concerns. He is very knowledgeable and keeps up to date with new medicines that are going to be released and the medicines that are available now. Plus, he talks to his clients so we can understand what is going on. I am a patient of his, with a SCI, and severe leg spasms. He is always so pleasant, I wouldn't go anywhere else.
