  • Family Medicine
  • Osteopathic Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

About Me

As a family medicine and integrative medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center I specialize in osteopathic medicine and acupuncture as it relates to primary care for children and adults. I am interested in acupuncture, mind-body practices, health promotion and holistic medicine.

Working with my patients and encouraging them in their personal pursuit of wellness is the most exciting part of my day. It’s inspiring to see patients who are grounded in the daily, sometimes difficult, work of making healthy choices for themselves and their families, and it’s something I strive to emulate in my own health journey.

I am interested in research that applies osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to pediatric populations, especially those with feeding difficulties or developmental delay.

I enjoy the academic cultural at Ohio State. It’s great to work with people who are enthusiastically curious and passionate about patient care.

Dr. Welsh is one of the most thorough docs I've been to. I was shocked almost of the questions. I was treated with respect. I wish she could be my family practitioner. I haven't met a dr. in years as concerning as she is, with the integrity and honesty she has. She truly has met her calling. Love her she's the best!!

Dr Welsh is extremely knowledgeable of how the body works as a whole. She is dedicated to the wellbeing of her patient. I felt cared for and she helped me understand my body better. OSU needs more providers like her, providers that focus on wellness and see you as a whole human been.

Dr. Welsh was incredible. She is the first doctor I have been to who has taken her time, was not rushed, and truly got to know me and understand the issues I was having. I really appreciate that Dr. Welsh made me feel not only comfortable with the visit but that I was important. Most doctors rush visits, ask almost no questions, and make me feel as if I am a burden to them. Thankfully, that is not the case with Dr. Welsh.
