What People Say About Dr. Robert Welch, MD

We found Dr Welch to be poor in all categories. Poor patient consultation and caring. Performed surgery in what was a very questionable quality. Poor follow up. Why settle for a second or third class surgeon when you can find a first class surgeon with a little research? Would recommend that you look elsewhere for an ortho surgeon.

Dr. Welsh offers a sense of kindness and sincere care for your well being. He is straight forward and is more than willing to answer any and all questions and concerns you have. I had a fractured wrist surgically repaired, I had no pain or discomfort post-op and was at ease from our first meeting to post-op follow up. I highly reccomend Dr. Welsh
