Hi. Yes, very good physician. I'm still waiting on a call. My appointment was Tuesday, today is Thursday, I'm still waiting on a call to reschedule a follow up mammogram for comparison, and that's all I'm waiting on. Thank you.

This was an office visit with Dr. Welander in anticipation of a colonoscopy procedure which is till over a week away. This visit was to ascertain what the procedure may provide and follow up steps. His nurse was most helpful and efficient in gathering information. I look forward to the experience of the operation and next steps should any be required.

The wait time in the ER was quite long, but understandable. The care I received both in the ER from Dr. Hartong and the care I received from the surgeon, Dr. Welander, was exceptional. Both folks were very professional and I elude a lot of trust and I really appreciate the experience. Thank you.
