What People Say About Dr. Richard Welch, MD

He was my doctor for 14 years. But when I needed him the most. He turned me down because I didn't have 70.00 dollars to give him. He is about the $$$$$$$. He doesn't care enough for his patients. So sad!

Easy to talk to and appropriately frank. Wait times can be long and he favors medications over other options.
