in Philadelphia, PA |
My eight year son is a patient of Dr Wells he just had surgery with him. We are very happy with Dr Wells and his whole team. They all treated us very well and Dr Wells took the time to explain everything in details with us. He is a very caring doctor and we are very pleased. I would send all my family and friends to him if they ever need his type of services.
in SHARON HILL |
Dr. Wells made my family and I comfortable enough that we trusted his decisions and advice. Very warm-hearted, caring physician with wonderful bedside manners. My son is an only child, so one can only imagine the anxiety of major surgery. But I was pleasantly surprised with the care my child received. Brilliant doctor!

As a mother of 4 active boys, we have had many broken bones, sprains and concussions. He has treated my boys with success and cared for them as if they were his own
