Caring and Bedside manner

Although this man seems to be a good surgeon- I don't know if my problems after my surgery are from my own bones breaking down or from an error during surgery- he is not a caring man, he is arrogant, rude and not very personable. He does not give straight answers when you ask him one.

I recommend Dr. Welch to all. I would give him 10 stars if that many were available. OUTSTANDING!!

Surgery was scheduled within 2 weeks of consultation with Dr. Welch. I walked in the hospital with pain that was with me 24/7 for several months. I walked out of the hospital with this constant pain GONE. The sore back muscles that followed the surgery were expected and all the proper pain medication was provided. This pain lasted less than 1 week.
