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. I’m interested in acupuncture, mind-body practices, health promotion and holistic medicine. I see adults, infants and children.

It’s inspiring to see patients who are grounded in the daily, sometimes difficult, work of making healthy choices for themselves and their families.

I’m interested in research that applies osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to pediatric populations, especially those with feeding difficulties and the physical tensions that accumulate from stress or birth injury.

    Dr. Welsh is an excellent & intuitive listener. She has a calming presence. She offers many resources (podcasts, books) for personal growth along with practical, small steps for health. For example, she recently suggested healthy fats like avocado & nuts to help the body hold hydration, especially in winter. I appreciate realistic suggestions rather than just being told to drink more water. Dr. Welsh is full of gems like that.

    Dr. Welsh was the most kind, considerate and gentle doctor I've ever had. She talked to me as a friend from her initial greeting and throughout our appointment time. She listened with interest about my history with a chronic and sever back issue, that I have tried every way possible, with many different doctors, to help find relief. The last doctor I saw for help, before Dr. Welsh, simply looked at my history and said there was no day he could help me without even looking at my back. Dr. Welsh was reassuring and gave me hope, as well as an hour of her time where she gave me a wonderful treatment and hope to come.

    After Dr. Welsh works on me I always leave my appointment feeling better, lighter than when I arrived.

    Dr. Welsh is amazing. The work she does and the care she provides is top notch. I could write a story about the positive impact she has made on my family's life (and mine). Bottom line: she is the best at what she does and truly cares for her patients.

    Dr. Leah Welsh is a good provider of patient care and is very thorough! She touches on all areas and makes suggestions where patients could benefit. For example a lot going on in patient's life now, a therapist could assist at this time.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
