Ratings for Dr. Stephen W Welden
He was recommended by a friend. I filed my insurance claims multiple times, and asked billing or whatever her name was for an update . I tried my best to assist and get it filed properly, however it never happened. The wait was horrible . I work about 1 hour away and had to cut my work day in half to travel. It was so stressful to ask time off, because I would get pressure from my employer. To top of this experience,, my last day in there he decided to come out to the waiting room and start our visit. Yes, folks he was consulting with my in the waiting room where people were going in and out. He dropped a medical bomb on me and I couldn't exactly express my feelings or ask personal questions about my health, because there were patients coming in. It was awkward , disappointing, and humiliating. He needs to retire, He is too old , Times have changed I'm surprised he doesn't have a lawsuit. I wish I never wasted my time and money at this office. I ended up with Dr Sandy Goodman. Completely different and positive experience.
I have a 4 year old son I conceived with IVF at Dr Weldens practice. He is a wonderful, kind, compassionate , smart physician and I would recommend ANYONE with fertility issues to see him. He listened to me and partnered with a recurrent loss specialist over the phone that I asked him to work with. He is not an egomaniac and he is incredibly reasonable. If I were younger I'd have 2 more with his office. My IVF nurse Pam, was fantastic. Highly recommend Dr. Welden. I experienced a man who truly loves what he does and does his work with passion and for that love, not the money. He is a God send.
The most unprofessional, terrible experience I've ever had with a doctor. I felt so uncomfortable with my exam, that I left the office in tears afterwards. Dr. Welden was recommended by a co-worker, and given the sensitive nature of my medical issues, I was expecting so much more. Would not recommend to anyone.
Dr. Stephen Welden is the best Doctor I have ever met. His professionalism, and knowledge, compassion and caring for his patients allow me to highly recommend him. I would'nt go to any other Gynecologyst while he is practicing in the medical field
Dr. Welden is incredibly kind and compassionate and has great bedside manner. Jamie, his nurse, is a God-send. She is equally as compassionate, has a sense of humor, and makes it a point to get to know her patients on somewhat of a personal level so as not to dread coming as frequently as IF patients need to. The desk/admin staff could really use a crash course in interactions with patients; i.e. return phone calls, follow through on insurance authorizations, call patient with schedule changes, be patient and don't be condescending (AKA, add some humanity to the experience). It's a good thing Dr. Welden and Jamie are as wonderful as they are to balance out the negative experience offered by the front half of the office, otherwise some would likely not return.
Went to the Florida Fertility Clinic earlier. Nurse practitioner probed me painfully and stuck me with a fat bill for nurse's consult. Was unsuccessful and told to return the following week which I refused. Went to Dr Welden instead and he saved my life. Found out that I had ovarian cancer. Dr Welden arranged for me to see an oncologist while I was out of the country. Returned and went straight to the oncologist. Dr Welden's diagnosis was right on the money. Because of his experience and skill he was able to detect it right away while the Florida Fertility was not able to do so. Per Dr Welden my pelvic mass was so tender and big there was no way that I could be probed. He immediately took a biopsy with no pain at all and right away detected the cancer. Because it was detected in the early stage I am now in good care. I thank him for saving my life. Great doctor, great staff. No complaints. Would highly recommend anyone needing a gynaecologist.
Dr. Welden and his staff are AMAZING! My first consultation with Dr.Welden went way past the amount of time it was supposed to and I had no clue, because I had so much fun talking with him and learning from him. He truly is excellent about educating his patients before proceeding with anything, which made me feel very knowledgeable and comfortable. I went to him after seeing two other doctors in Tampa and knew the minute I made my appointment with him, we were in great hands. His staff is absolutely WONDERFUL! I especially loved Tana, she was always so friendly and made me laugh. With Dr. Welden & his staffs help, we got pregnant on his first attempt at helping us, and I am so grateful for them giving us this gift! Once our twins are born, I will be returning to Dr. Welden to all my gynecological needs (as he only does fertility & GYN, not OB). I hope he is practices for many more years because we are so lucky to have him here in Tampa and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
I was very impressed with Dr. Weldons knowledge and I know one day with his help along with Nurse Jamie's help I will be able to enjoy giving life to a new child. But please if the Dr. could do something with the front half of the house. Omg how rude can the girl up front named Tana be, I think she needs to attend class on how to treat the patients a little better. If there was a way when I go to my next appointment I could not see her at the front desk shoving food into her mouth it would be so much nicer of a visit. Thank you again Dr. Weldon and Nurse Jamie.
