Dr Wellisch is an incredible doctor. If you are looking for a doctor to prescribe you Opioid pain meds, seek out a different doctor. I have an enormous amount of chronic pain due to past injuries. He listened to me and has me on a safe regiment of medication and addresses new issues as they arise with helpful treatments. Extremely smart and actually cares about the way you are feeling, mentally and physically. Glad I found him!

Terrible Doctor with even worse bedside manner. Scolded and lectured me for crying even though I explained it was due to pain and exhaustion. He kept pushing a medication I stated again and again was dangerously contraindicated for me and he was upset that I refused it. Being lectured by a Dr. for crying was one of my worst medical experiences in my lifetime. He should work in a lab and not have patient contact. The experience felt degrading. Find a better Dr than Ofer Wellisch.

For lack of a better word “horrible”. Poor communication skills, insensitive, doesn’t return phone calls, nor the staff to cover his shortcomings. I’m amazed he is still practicing.
