“Dr. Welch was excellent, comforting, and very knowledgeable about his hearts….lol. I highly recommend anyone to this office.”

“Dr. Welch was extremely patient and listened to all of my concerns. He made me feel comfortable and was very thorough. His staff was helpful, polite, and very informative from checking in to running heart exams. I was extremely concerned about the structure of my heart being flawed or defective yet he was sure to take away my worries and put them to rest all in my 1st visit by reviewing results on the spot. Highly recommend.”
