My experience was very positive. Dr. Welander was kind and informative about my issues. He did a good job explaining things and came up with a plan so I can start feeling better. I would definitely recommend this provider.

I appreciated that they listened to both of us and didn't focus giving me the information. I felt like my son was an equal part of the equation.

I was not in office but in hospital & had surgery. Everybody that cared for me were excellant! De. Welander was AWESOME!!! There is only one complaint that I have & that's the Chaplin NEVER came in to see me! He walked by & looked in & walked on by! There is one thing a person needs when going through surgery is comforting words & prayers. I HAD NOTHING! Very disappointed!!!!!!

I felt like a human that was cared for. Other hospitals I feel like just a number. Pella was so much different than other hospitals and for that I am grateful.

Dr Welander and his nurse, Ann spent extra time explaining my treatment options and explained why he cannot do the required procedure.

Dr. Welander was very nice. Just wish the medical imaging department would have done a better job with the scan. Then the doctor would have enough information to treat me. Now I have to have another scan because the first one was not done right.

Everything there was excellent. They treated me with respect, and they really care about their patients, and care about you. I do highly recommend everything that happened to me. It was very very good.
