"This was my first appointment with Dr. Welch who was recommended by a good friend. He listened to my symptoms & explained the treatment options for my conditions from least invasive to surgery. He clearly explained the surgical procedure in a clear & understandable manner. He took time to answer all of my questions. He has a warm, caring, relatable manner."

"I was surprised to find out that we were going to have to reset the arm. (probably why they said call ASAP). At first I was going to try and get a 2nd opinion but Dr. Welch seemed really good and his ratings say so, too. Our appointment was on a Monday and his adjustment was on Friday. I am really happy we went with Dr. Welch."

"Nothing is worse than being in constant pain, to the point were it impacts your work. Dr. Welch listen to my concerns and resolved it and now I am not in any pain at all. He was very nice, a tad funny, and approachable. He showed me the causes of my pain. After explaining why I hurt, he fixed it and I am pain free.. Wish he could fix all my achy joints so I can feel 18 again."
