Dr. Wellons is a gem. After two months of struggling through unwanted side effects after surgery, it was a relief and pleasure to speak with someone so knowledgeable, approachable, and caring. I cannot thank her enough for her assistance in meeting my medical needs. She is truly working in her calling.
