I realize everyone's experience can be different. However, I do not understand some of the reviews regarding Dr Wade Welch and his staff. They have always treated me and my concerns with the highest level of compassion, care, and professionalism. They have helped me achieve results in my treatment no one else has since Dr Joseph Sargent retired from the Migraine Clinic at Mennigers years ago. I have never had to wait of more than a few minutes in the waiting room or otherwise. Without hesitation. I'd recommend him to my closest family and friends.

Do not give this clown the time or your money, rude and unprofessional at every turn. He told myself why am even here and refered myself back to my family MD. This guy is a crook looking to steal you're hard earned cash. The staff nurse had the personality of a paper bag. Buyers beware of this thief. Dingy dirty office should have been a clue to equal the service.

I liked Dr. Welch a great deal. He was the one who finally took me seriously and was able and willing to order tests that no one else has been willing to do. It was his staff that I had major issues with. It was difficult to get through and confusing. Many times I had to leave multiple messages for follow through and it rarely got done. It was usually some triage nurse that did not know me. Often the staff would say that is not my job, I am just the secretary and tell me to call another number.

After the nightmare of dealing with Dr. Kumar, Dr. Welch was incredible. His staff was very informative and they all had great attitudes. Dr. Welch explained everything, made sure I understood, and great bedside manner. So glad I decided to give him a try. And I finally have ANSWERS!!

Are experience on the 4 times we went to his office was very poor. Our average wait time was 45 minutes after our appointed time. On our third visit we were his first patient at 8:30 in the morning and we did not see him until 9:20. We were in the reception area and we heard one of the secretaries say at 9:00 that he wasn't even there yet! That is not professional.

My husband and I met with Dr. Welch today at Wamego Hospital for a 2nd opinion for my husband who had been diagnosed previously with demencia with onset of alzheimers at another facility. We just were not comfortable with that diagnosis so our PCP recommended Dr. Welch. The testing that was done had never been done before. Dr. Welch was very easy to talk to as well as his nurse. We are comfortable with the diagnoses and glad we are now a patient of Dr. Welch.
