Specialties

Dr. Michael J Welch has the following 2 specialties

  • Allergy & Immunology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Complete waste of money

DO NOT SEE DR. WELCH for your child's peanut allergy! He won't tell you anything different than your pediatrician! There are no studies currently to help your child with their food allergy! Save your money!!! Our appointment cost $1000 and did not include any confirmatory testing. He didn't give us any new information and when we tried to get information over the phone as to what the appointment would entail, are there currently any programs going to help children with peanut allergies, we were told that we had to see the Dr. Now we have no new information, but are out $1000 of our hard earned money. What a shame!
