    Dr. Welch was friendly and easy to talk to and describe my problem. Showed me the xrays from a clinic when we were on a trip and explained what he observed.

    Except for the Dr. running about a half hour behind (which wasn't a problem) and we were informed, the experience with Dr. Welch and his staff was excellent.

    I like how Dr. Welch showed me the xrays and my injury. It was very interesting especially since I was a dental hygienist in my past career and can read x rays
