Brian A. Welcome, M.D.

Dr. Welcome loves building the deep trust and communication required to safely achieve great outcomes in glaucoma surgery and post-operative care. Through the frequent checks required through decades, he feels glaucoma surgeons are given a unique gift of building strong personal relationship with their patients.

Originally from New York, this busy surgeon also enjoys running/racing, Caribbean travel, blue-water sailing and wave ski surfing, along with more sedate pastimes of writing/journaling and reading non-fiction by the fireplace.
