My last two appointments were with Dr Wells. I was reluctant to see s new dr because I needed treatment with an uncommon neurological condition. I was pleasantly surprised that she knew what it was and offered s treatment option to get me past the worst part of it. last appointment for a different issue I was again impressed. She explains drug side effects, is respectful of my perspective on medications, and explains options. I would feel confident seeing her at any time.
