Great experience

Went in for knee problems with both knees. We went through standard treatment plans starting with steroid injection and then much later the gel injection services. Both services went well, but of course eventually the pains came back. We did the MRI scans and both knees are total knee replacement eligible due to missing cartilage, bone spurs, and bad arthritis. I am currently delaying this due to my goal to try and improved some with physical therapy treatment first. Doctor Welsh and his staff are excellent and I like how we look at all my options and pros and cons of the immediate treatment plan that I chose. Great job.

Terrible Office Manager

First off let me begin this review by stating my issue is not with Dr. Welsh but his office manager. I have gone to see Dr. Welsh a couple of times for my knee over the past year and have never been treated with such disrespect in all my life. His office manager, Dottie, has to be the rudest woman to ever walk the face of the earth. She constantly yells at staff (the ones that are left anyways) and had a huge attitude with me the PATIENT. I will never go back to see Dr. Welsh due to his office manager. Dr. Welsh if you read these, you should do yourself a favor and find a new office manager she is doing you more harm than good!!!!

Excellent and caring staff and service

I had a broken arm that hadn't been seen except in the ER. Come to find out a broken wrist as well. Was caught being thrown around by other Orthos in the system. Dr. Welsh's staff Immediately took me in even when the insurance was in question. They assured they would take care of me and make sure I could afford whatever the cost was and be treated as I needed.
