The wait wasn't that bad. After I was brought back into the room I maybe waited ten minutes for the doctor. His nurse and staff were very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Armistead was very nice and listened towhat I had to say. I do plan on coming back for future visits if needed.

Had a great visit. Dr. Wellford is a pleasure to be around! He's upbeat and personalizes with his patients. Got nagged about smoking (Par for the course), received one recommendation and one referral! Very thorough and left a "feel good" feeling upon departure!
