Arnold O Welden has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Sometimes a Horse is just a Horse

I wasn't thrilled about the service I received. He didn't seem very knowledgeable or to have much opinion. He was not warm. He suggested specialists that I know I did not need. When he hooves he thought zebras just because I have an ongoing condition. Sometimes, a cold is just a cold. He was unable to give me answers to the initial reason for going to see him. After a few months he sent me a letter releasing me from his care, just a few days after I had been in his office. Apparently an annual physical was too much for him to handle. I want someone eager to take me on and engage me and work with my specialists. He just wasn't the "one".

very dissapointed

Ive never had to go see a dr for other then an anual check up till I became very ill and had to be addmitted into ICU. Dr Welden has been my PCP since then and has honestly done nothing to help me. I've seen him every 2 weeks for the past 4 months and he is in and out of the exam room in less then 2 minutes, doesnt listen to any of my concerns or even examin me. Ive tried to give him a chance but i think its time I find a new doctor.
