Dr. Welsh has been my dermatologist for 12 years. He’s always been friendly, genuine and takes time to answer my questions or explain the science of what my body is doing. He is quick when doing the semi-annual exams and biopsies. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Welsh explained how much tissue would be removed for the biopsy, the possibility of scaring, and he seemed very proficient in performing the shave biopsies.

I showed up on time and was greeted in the waiting room. A few minutes later I was escorted to an examination and treatment room. I disrobed and put on a pair gown. Dr. Welsh soon came in, greeted me, and examined all of my body areas. He took 4 biopsies and sprayed nitrogen on several other areas. I was told to remove the 4 bandages the next day and to apply Vaseline jelly to those areas. I was also told that results of my biopsies would be available in 2 weeks. I dressed and was escorted to the office area where I paid my $30 copay and made an appointment for October 29. My whole appointment lasted about 30-40 minutes in Dr. Welsh's office.
