Dr. Welander was absolutely wonderful. Loved his bed side manners. He was very thorough, treated you very kindly, very prompt, questions, follow ups, and other needs. So it was a wonderful wonderful experience and I would highly recommend him and refer him to other people. Thank you.

Dr. Welander is wonderful. He is very knowledgeable and professional in his field. His warm personality made me feel very comfortable with him so that I could ask him the questions that were on my mind. He answered them thoroughly and with that confidence I want to see in my doctor. I am looking forward to seeing him again if and when the need arises.

Dr Welander was very informative and made us comfortable...didn't talk down to us and very attentative. Also liked that we didn't have to wait long for him or in the lab for blood drawn.
