Patient Comments (1)
in Fresno, CA |
We had an emergency where our daughter suddenly started have blurry vision and would occasionally go cross-eyed. Dr. Welch was very easy to schedule with and was prompt in recommending treatment. We were able to get an MRI done, and got corrective glasses that have fixed the problem. He is very friendly and knowledgable. He would answer our questions and explained things so we could understand them.
