I have been seeing Dr. Wells for over 25 years. He is very through, friendly and will spend the time answering your questions and making sure you understand what your issues are before he leaves the exam room. He isn't in a race to see how many patients he can lay eyes on and collect their money...more

I have been a patient of Dr Wells for 3 years. He is the best doctor I have ever had the experience of seeing. He will spend time with you 10-15 mins and really ask questions. This man is what I wish every Doctor was.

I have a family member who is a patient of doctor wells. I have heard some very bad stories about the way he treats his patients and how he talks about them. I can only hope someone treats him the same way when he is very elderly.
