His judgemental fat shaming comment of "I'm probably beating a dead horse, but you could stand to lose a hundred pounds" did nothing to improve the numbness radiating through my arm.

do yourself a favor and look for a doctor that cares about the patient and their health! you might better get a opinion from just anyone walking up the road, im sure they would have more concern about your health and well being. university of rochester has some excellent doctors, keep looking for one that cares about your health!

Dr. Wells has no sense of humor nor ability to relate with patient. Poceeds with procedures without explanation of the rationale nor what what the outcome my determine. Unwilling to answer patient questions-just repeats himself with a reply that is not informative as related to patient concern.

My experience was terrible. Dr Welles was 53 Minutes Late, Told me my problems were caused by things that don't make any sense. He didn't refill my migraine medication or switch it because I have been having side effects WORST Experience I have ever had with a neurologist. Extremely disappointed!

Professional, patient, not very talkative, would like to see also that there was a scan to go with the memory test. And follow up with scans to see how brain is changing and how fast. Talk to patient about diet and what else they can do to slow the process. Explanations on all tests. He is knowledgable.
