All I can say is this doctor cares. Ive had been in this hospitals cate for 30 yrs; 9 visits including emergencies. He is bar none. Staff is receptive to questions in person and by phone. Use of technology for feedback in a well measured way. I wish Dr Welch could be my primary doctor.

Dr Welch was spot on with his assessment of my situation. I would highly recommend him. My breathing improved like he said it would if I continued with my medication and if not he had a plan B in line. Thank you Dr Welch. It was a very trying time not being able to breathe. Fantastic doctor.
