Dr. Welch was very considerate. He explained what he was doing in every step, being mindful of any anxiety I might have. He was very professional. The entire office was also very professional and cared about me as a patient. I am very impressed.

Dr. Welch performed MOHS surgery on my nose. He answered my questions, is highly skilled, and the process (and recovery) was painless. The entire surgical team was attentive and competent. Once I had healed I went back to him for the scar revision which also went smoothly. For all of my appointments, they saw me at the scheduled time; there was never any wait. I highly recommend him.

Competent, calm and caring. Dr. Welch performed MOHS surgery on my face and it was a pleasant experience. I have had previous surgery by another doctor at another clinic and that was a traumatic experience. Dr. Welch has a great bedside manner, answers questions and is very skilled. He personally called me the evening after the surgery to check on me. I highly recommend him and will use him should I need further surgeries.

Dr Welch is highly skilled in Mohs procedure and did a beautiful, effective job removing a squamous cell cancer above my lip. I was seen earlier than my actual appointment time, the wait time for pathology results was surprisingly quick, and the entire surgical team was professional, efficient, and supportive. The scheduler, Ulicies, was professional, caring, and super efficient at getting me in quickly for the procedure within the same week of the initial biopsy results. Outstanding care.
