Dr. Welk and his staff are all amazing. I saw him for a breast reduction and six months later, I am still happy with the results. From the first consultation, he was thorough in explaining everything I could expect, including my new size and recovery period. Kathy took care of all of my insurance questions/needs and provided me with an accurate out of pocket cost. He has the best staff--Betty his anesthesiologist was just amazing, especially considering how nervous I was. He has a great sense of humor and is straight to the point. If you're looking for a doctor to coddle you, you won't get that from him, but what you will get is a very skilled surgeon who clearly knows what he is doing. I highly recommend him!
