Had an amazing experience with Dr. Wells. After having wrist issues that were progressively getting worse for over a year and seeing many hand specialists/surgeons who were not able to diagnose my issue, Dr. Wells was able to figure out my problem right away. I had surgery a few months later. Everything went extremely fast and smooth and I was extremely well taken care of. Such incredible expertise. All the staff there is extremely kind and efficient. 11/10!
I had my eyes done. I am so happy with the outcome the dr and staff are so fabulous I can’t say enough about how wonderful my experience was. Very kind and caring dr and wonderful staff.
Definitely my first choice!
I love Dr. Wells, my last doctor, Dr. Son Hing, was incredible but unfortunately for me retired and he referred me to Dr. Wells…he has been nothing but amazing. To date years ago now, I had tummy tuck scar fixes, some liposuction, and my breast scar tissue removed. Honestly, I absolutely love his admin assistant Kellie, she is phenomenal and always makes me feel like I am an old friend!!
Doing some research now about getting a facelift and some extra lipo and this is definitely my first choice!
