This was my first time seeing the doctor and he spent the time to go over everything with me, explain treatment, what to expect in the future etc. I had a very good experience, especially when I was (and am) in uncharted territory.

He's all about big pharmacy and invasive procedures over boosting the body's ability to heal. No thanks.

Dr. Welch was rude, showed no concern whatsoever Re: My pain, or finding conclusion to my problem. I was expecting a 1-2 hour test according to the instruction I was sent. Only spent 1/2 hour total for exam. He tested the wrong area even after telling him where my issue was. Not a very nice person.

I was not impressed. I tried to show him where my back was hurting and he really didnt care to find out. Very condesending attitude during my visit and I almost walked out. Became slightly friendly at the end of the visit but my mind was already made up. Basocally just dismissed my concerns with my back then referred me to a chiropractor.

Dr. completely ignored my knowledge of my pain& meds. He did what he wanted - did not listen to what I (the patient) needed. Very condescending dr.

If the provided doesn't communicate nor respect you, then, it is a negative experience. It's a pity, as he seems to be a brilliant doctor.
