What People Say About Dr. Melissa Welch, MD

I think Dr. Melissa Welch has a very sarcastic attitude. Her bedside manner is horrific. I think she is the most snobbish, rude FEMALE DR. I have ever been to. I also feel she is not educated well in what I was being seen for. Not only that she treated me as if I was a head case and my symptoms were fake. That is not the way I wish to be treated by ANYBODY.... much less a "so called" DR. I think she is ridiculous bringing in another female for my exam and not telling me why she needed her.

I have only had great experiences with Dr Welch! She is very kind and I felt more than comfortable with her! She was very concerned for my well being and did a great job explaining in depth about my procedure, etc.

I was brought into an exam room and right away, b4 any exam the doctor told me my baby was ectopic. Right away i went into shock & grief. Before i could even think clearly the doctor was gone & a nurse was giving me a MTRX shot to end the pregnancy. I left without a handout on what just happend, what to expect, or even when i need to go get my blood tests done. Two weeks later, i get a call from the office telling me i missed my 8 week Ultra sound. I had to remind them that i lost my baby. BAD!

After delivering my daughter who was a stillborn I was told a nurse would come to my home and I instead this awesome office called to congratulate me on the birth of my daughter and ask if I wanted home services to check mine and my child's well being. When I told them my child was stillborn the receptionist said she was sorry and would have a grief counselor call me... I'm still waiting for that call and visit. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable
