Dr. Claudia P Welke has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

SHE IS HORRIBLE! She is very pushy, bossy, and YELLS at her patients. She doesn't understand what people are going through and how they feel. She gets mad easily, and easy to get on her bad side (for doing nothing). She never admits her wrongs. She never calls her patients back, neither does her nurse. Her and her nurse are very unreliable and strange. I dont know what her problem is. THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER DOCTORS OUT THERE, Dont go to her!

Dr. Welke has seen two of my Children. Extremely knowledgeable and we have experience immense progress under her care. I agree with the other reviewer....I have no idea why anyone would give her a 1 star review.

She's a keeper

I had two psychiatrists prior to Dr. Welke and she puts them to shame. She's very smart, looks at the big picture, and considers what's best for the patient. At appointments, she gets right to the point and makes the most of the 15 minutes. She's also trustworthy, timely, and good at collaborating with other mental health professionals. She's fantastic. Whoever gave her 1 star was obviously angry about nothing and having a bad day.
