Staff is amazing – especially Dr. Hu! I always feel as if they genuinely care about me as a patient and they take their time, I never feel rushed in my appointment. — Facebook Review


Efficient and friendly staff. My first experience with “Kate”. She is a “keeper”. I trust Dr. Welch completely. Have been their “customer” for many years and have no plans to change.  -Facebook Review
