I have been a patient of Dr Welch since 2016 and cannot speak highly enough of him, not only is he extremely knowledgable but also has a very humane approach every time I have seen him, he shows a genuine interest in how I am and how me and my family are coping / feeling. Dr Welch and his team saved my life when all the odds were stacked against me, a truly remarkable human being.
