I have been working with Dr. Wells for a few years. I appreciate his willingness to take time to discuss and explain my problems and treatments. In addition, I also appreciate the time he takes to allow me to express my concerns, ask questions, and offer my opinions.
Truly appreciated Dr Wells doing the work the day I was there instead of rescheduling.He said he had the time and another trip would have been a hardship.
Dr Wells is an excellent physician My surgery and recovery went very well.
I gained very valuable information from both the nurse and the doctor.
This visit was informative but things were not explained very well on my previous visits
Dr Wells is an excellent physician. Take time to explain what he will be doing. Answers all of your questions. Has a deep concern for your well being. He never rushes you out of his office. I don't mind waiting In the waiting room past my appointment time because of this. I know I will get the excellent care that he gives to all patients.
Dr. Well explained his thoughts on how satisfied I would be with his service, considering my age. I'm 83! My only thought is that Jane Fonda had plastic surgery and looks great. Jane is now 84. Guess that is in the back of my head. Dr. Well suggested I try a laser procedure first. Have mad an appointment for that procedure and go from there.
Amazing experience Doctor and staff were superior
