Patient Comments (1)
in Martinsburg, Wv |
Dr. Welch was willing to tell me that my kidneys are fine based off of 2 year old and longer records. Even though his staff had assured me they were able to get my current records and didn't. Told me there was no sign of infection although I was just diagnosed at urgent care with a uti/Kidney infection.
